THE STORY:

This is such a tragedy and heartbreaking to see. In the early morning hours, Karma Farms in Marshall Texas, was destroyed by a tornado. Karma Farms is owned by a close family friend i have know the better part of my life. Vickie Ives has already been threw alot this year with hip surgery and still running the farm with her two daughters help. Vickie depends on her farm for a living. She has everything from daily rides for anyone who would like to just have a peaceful day, to running day camps in the summer for children to learn all about the Spanish mustang, how to ride, care for your horse and play lots of games. Vickie also grows unique irises and sells for extra income also. I have spent alot of time as a child on Karma Farms during the summer, i have seen how hard this good woman has worked over the years to keep this all going, plus how her daughters will forever faithfully stand beside their mother working right along with her. With all this being said, you can imagine how heartbreaking it was when my mom called and told me about the tornado. The one great thing is that God seen it fit to keep them away from home( last i heard they were still trying to get back on the farm) and also keep every single animal safe. I cant remember how many horses, cats, dogs, 1 buffalo she has i would guess over 75 horse tho. Vickie and her daughter now have the task of not only having income for live on, but also find money to rebuild the farm. a huge tree is on top of her house, tons of trees everywhere. Fences ripped apart, outer building gone or damaged, gardens filled with fallen trees and thats just a good start. It is going to take alot of hard work and money to rebuild this farm. please keep everyone at Karma farms in your prayers and that everyone stays safe as the try and clean up this unfortunate mess. Every single penny that is donated will go straight to Vickie Ives to help the farm, and for them to survive until the work is over and things are back to as normal as it can be. If you know where Karma Farms is at and would like to help, i'm sure Vickie will not mind at all. Thank you for all your thought, prayers and hard work in advance.
