Request assistance - Your information will go into a Google document that will be shared publicly so that community members can offer assistance. Therefore, you are not asked in the form to share your specific location, just your contact information. Community members who read the document and think they can assist will then be able to contact you. From there, you decide whether you want to take their assistance. You are under no obligation to the person who contacts you in any way, and you are welcome to refuse or put conditions on their assistance.
