It's a sad news that one of our beloved member of Tekken Family, Brian "BigWorm" Jones, had an unfortunate blaze in their home.

As we have done so many times before, let's help our friend stand up again.
Kor has set up a donation drive to help, and we can contribute by giving what we can gladly give, sharing this news, and praying for BigWorm and his family's well being.
