One of the tenets of libertarianism is voluntarism. Another one is localization. Here we are, trying to utilize both. I am the Central Region Representative of the Librarian Party of Maine and I had this idea to help fundraise for emergency fuel when my daughters school was doing a local food drive in Oakland. I thought to myself, what is the best way to give back to the community, other than a food drive? I thought what is one of the most expensive costs we have in the winter, that is going to just keep going up? That was when I had my ah ha moment. Heating fuel. 

So I ran some ideas by my local town, and the clerk informed me they have a discretionary fund that is used for emergency purposes and is a lot easier to apply for, and that was when I decided that would be the best route to go through. As the state’s IT Director as well, I went ahead and created all the needed items in PayPal and the page on the website and posted it to our local Facebook pages. Here it is for the link
