FishFam circling to Support Vinay aka Color Guppies in his time of need

After months of his wife fighting medical issues and being in the hospital, Vinay aka Color Guppies and his wife lost their oldest child, age 14 in late January due to Covid. From the start, Vinay has been very quiet about the issues his family is facing and has very much rejected help from FishFam.

Riko and Skipper have worn him down. While the thought of receiving financial help is very awkward and humbling to him, the amount of love and support he has received from the FishFam in his time of need has overwhelmed him, in a good way.

Vinay works multiple jobs and has asked for nothing. Yet the medical bills continue to come in. Skipper and Riko plan to do streams, auctions, and more to raise money for Vinay. In addition, you can send donations to him.
