A devastating fire destroyed the Nitram Charcoal factory on June 12. They were ready to rebuild, but then the company received worse news.

Their facility was not insured because of a mix-up. It’s a total loss, and although the local community has already offered to help rebuild the factory, Nitram’s custom-made oven for creating the charcoal will need to be replaced.

Nitram owner Jerzy Niedojadlo set up a GoFundMe account so artists who wish to help with the rebuilding can easily contribute. Go here to help Nitram at their time of need. Their goal is $100,000.
