It has been a full month since the fire. And you all still amaze me everyday. I never would have even dared to hope that we would reach 95.65% of our goal. Thank you all so much. In the next few days we will close out this page- I can't find the words to express my gratitude I just hope you all know you all helped make a miracle happen. xxooo Mary

On December 27, 2013 Tanya Shohov-Bianchino's family home in Sea Cliff, NY suffered a devastating fire. Thank God that there were no reported injuries. Along with the majority of Tanya's personal belongings, she also lost the entire inventory of the cosmetics business she has spent close to 5 years building- that loss alone is estimated to be at least $50,000. Tanya was just married last November 3rd to her longtime love Nicholas Bianchino- they had just signed a lease on an apartment in Brooklyn. They were in the process of moving their things from Sea Cliff when the fire occurred. To make matters worse Nick was laid off from his job a few days ago. So needless to say Tanya & Nick need our help, love and support. If you can manage a donation no matter the size it would be an amazing act of generosity. If you can't manage a donation sending prayers and words of encouragement would mean the world to these amazing people

It has been 3 weeks since my whole world turned upside down and even though it still hasn't turned right side up, it's slowly on it's way. I wanted to thank everyone that has helped me through this. I am so grateful to everyone for their kind words, their donations of money, food, clothing and time. I am also amazed at the kindness of strangers. People that don't even KNOW my family have reached out to us. I thank you all so much. I've been busy trying to start anew that I haven't even sent out thank you's for my wedding gifts (those that survived that is, and that I can remember who they were from) and for that I apologize! I honestly don't know what else to say except thank you again.

I want to wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year! Everyone that has shared our story or donated has helped us more than they can imagine. We went through my home Monday and my room was just a gaping hole. There was nothing left. I am trying to look at this as a fresh start. It will take a lot of hard work but it will be worth it. After everything my family has gone through in the last few years this is nothing we can't handle. Thank you all for helping me develop a more positive attitude! God Bless!

We love you guys so much and wish there were more we can do to help. If you can think of anything else we can do, please let me know. My heart is breaking for you and my tears are flowing frequently and my prayers are always with you and your Mom and Serge. I love you my new sister! XOXOXOXOXOXO

As I sit by my mother in law's computer going through my website and looking through all the rare and discontinued inventory I lost, I realize how much work I put into my business and I think of all those hard-earned dollars you all donated. I realize how much hard work and sweat goes into making a living these days and I want to thank each and every one of you for every single dollar you donated. Every time I see the amount go up it makes me cry. It actually pains me to accept help, it's just not in my nature. My heart is filled with love and gratitude for every single person that donated and/or shared this link or my family's story. I wish I could do something for you all. Apparently nothing of mine survived besides the wedding dress and a few wedding gifts (thank God for that!). Perhaps that's a good omen for Nick and I? My brother is still sorting through his and my mother's belongings to see if anything can be salvaged. All my love and humble gratitude to everyone. God Bless!

Words cannot express how grateful I am for this outpouring of generosity from everyone. I was a mess all night and all of this morning. I am now feeling that I am going to be able to get through this with the help of friends like you. My faith in humanity is as strong as ever. I love you all. Thank you so very much. I will keep you posted on any progress. At this point we are trying to see if there is anything left to salvage out of the fire. Miraculously my wedding dress survived as did a few of my mothers childhood photo albums. Unfortunately my personal photo albums are gone as are many old and cherished letters from my husband, my father and my grandfather. My clothes are gone and I can replace them, although it hurts since I just bought a whole bunch of new things and didn't even get to take them out of the boxes yet! My main concern is to try to get my business back up and running as much as possible since I had to close down my website and cancel & refund all orders placed last week. That was difficult since my husband and I were depending on my salary to get us through while he was laid off. But we will make it somehow, thanks to all of you. I appreciate it so very much, every time I think about it, it brings tears to my eyes. Thank you a million times over...

A friend from SI posted this and I just wanted to comment as I am unable to give money but if you have any photos you salvaged that might be able to be restored digitally or if I can offer you my services as a photographer I am more than happy to do so. I hope you are able to get back on your feet in the new year with all the help that people are able to offer you. lucidia@gmail.com

thank you all so much.. Update posted by Mary Joyce 17 mins agoI am completely and totally humbled...I am completely and totally humbled by the outpouring of love from everyone. I have been bawling crying all day because it's unfathomable to think about starting everything over with nothing. Everyone has been so kind. Your kindness and generosity has made me realize that we can do it. It will be a lot of hard work but somehow we will do it. I'm stronger than I thought I was and with your help it will make it so much easier. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
