|My 45k Thank you!|
My husband’s parents, who take care of his 93 year old grandmother, called at 2 AM to tell us that they just lost everything in a wild fire las night. Husband’s aunt and uncle lived next door and their house is gone also.
As far as we know all the family is accounted for, and uninjured. Aunt and Uncle we haven’t heard from, but that could just be lack of communication. No one said they are missing and thats good news. They got their dogs safe. The two, older, cats are unaccounted for but they were older cats and we all suspect they ran to safety long before it all happened (these cats are smart cookies).
They are living in a camper trailer that they saved before the house burned. It sounds like they still have most of their vehicles (the construction truck, Nana’s car, moms car) but the jeep they were just about fixing MELTED.
Everything was insured but that doesnt mean they aren’t still in an awful and desperate situation. Insurance takes a while even when they dont drag their feet. The investigation of the fire could take a while. And in the mean time my husband’s family needs clothes, food, and more than a camper to live in. They still own the property that burned and have decided that they want to rebuild a house.
I am going to start taking EMERGENCY COMMISSIONS to help as much as I can. If thats clothes, ok. If that helps pay some rent somewhere, ok. If it just goes into a savings account to help them build their house, ok. These commissions are going to be full price. With or without the emergency subject line Im sending them what I can and what they need.
Please see my ToS, Pricing, Will-Not-Draw list, Badge Commissions, and my website for more info on commissions.
If you would like to donate anything, we would all be very greatful. I am not going to run a gofundme or anything. If you want to donate please just send money “to friends and family” via paypal at Venneccablind@gmail.com. If you want to put in a note about your support, please do.
Thank you for your support, thoughts, prayers, contributions, sympathy. It means more than you know.
