Floods Destroy Lives, People Rebuild Them
Organized by: Sondra Baker
On the morning of April 23rd, this is what my mother and her life partner Sondi woke up to. Imagine seeing your business that you invested 15 plus years of blood sweat and tears into, the business you built with your bare hands, because there was no many to do it any other way, the business that is your sole lively hood, imagine seeing that under water. Imagine that crussing feeling of knowing that all your hard work has been undone by 24 hours of unrelenting rain. My mother and I are estranged, and I live half way around the world, and I feel totally helpless, but non of that means I do not still love her and Sondi and that I don't understand the pain, hopelessness and disappointment they are feeling. Starting a fundraiser here is the only thing I could think of to help from my distance. I am hoping that you will help too.
