 PHOENIX, AZ
Due to the treacherous downpour of rain last night (8/2/16) Amy and Jack experienced a flood. More than 6" of water made its way through their entire home. A crew of 3 men turned into 6 and then into 9 very rapidly; 6 trucks and multiple large vacuums worked for 3 hours evacuating water from her home only to deem it a Red Cross Emergency. Sand bags piled at the entryways to keep out the 10" of water flowing by. Insurance is questionable at this point as "flood insurance" is not part of her policy. This will not be a small flooring and baseboard repair- this is flooring, baseboards and HALF of every wall that needs to be replaced. In addition to any appliances and furniture that have experienced damage.

Amy is one of the most kind, generous, cheerful, strong, hardworking, dedicated people I know. She is a single mother who dedicates her entire self to maintaining a safe home and environment for Jack to grow in. She is one of the best nurses I know, and spends her working hours ensuring complete strangers lives are better. She goes above and beyond in all aspects and she needs our help. A dollar goes a long way in a time of need, so please donate, even if only $1! And no matter what you do, please share this campaign.

Thank you all in advance for your compassion, kindness and generosity!

Hey everyone! I thought you'd all like an update. Jack & I moved in with my family here in Phoenix while our baseboards are being removed & walls treated. The restoration company will double their dehumidifiers & double the time for no additional costs! A cleaning company will come out next week. The next big deal is talking to an engineer to figure out how to keep this from ever happening again. Thank you everyone for reaching out and for so many amazingly generous donations! You blow me away and we're so thankful for you. Please keep sharing our story bc it's working! Like I said before, never thought I'd see our faces on a gofundme but, holy smokes. What a great thing when so much work is ahead of us.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts ❤️

So it's official, none of this is covered by Amy's insurance, had this water come from the ceiling she'd be taken care of. Since it came from the ground, she's on her own. Let's help her to not feel alone, help me embrace her with support! Thank you!

- Please look at the PDF for 'flood barriers' - homebuilt and CHEAP and EASY to build - WILL block all of this water from ever getting in again. No sales, nothing to buy from me - just look and consider. I've met with CoP and a person from Fire Emergency to get more promotion for this solution that IS - IN USE - in other areas - cannot figure out why NOT HERE? - Good luck -
