Well I had my FEMA case reopened proved that I can no longer live where I was, could not have moved my house in boulder county, and that in fact I no longer have a house ,and yet I sit here crying w the news that there is nothing they can do! I guesse I really have to face the facts that there will be no compensation for the house I loved soooooo much!thank you every one for all the donations, furniture,help,time,love and support, I will now move forward knowing there will be no money and kick some ass and create a new beautiful beginning! And of course thank you Jim suzy Ben tucker and Henry for housing us for so long we love you !!
Thanks to CNN's Melanie Hicken for writing so passionately about the Colorado flood victims and bringing the need for continued fundraising to a national level. Your generous donations are making a difference and getting noticed!
Just talked to Jenna. She's been out of work for over two weeks and it will be a long time before she is able to reopen her hair salon, The Lyon's Mane, since the town of Lyons itself is inhabitable for 2 to 6 months. She does have mobile appointments scheduled, but her work level is not even close to what is was in her own salon. We both love reading the names and comments from all the supporters! It's so amazing to find the connections - old friends, new friends, neighbors, friends of friends. It's just as amazing when there's no connection at all. Just people helping people! Thank you!!!
If you know Jenna at all, you know is she is technology challenged, so she asked I post a thank you to everyone. She is spending her days calling FEMA, insurance companies, credit card companies, phone companies. She is calling her clients, trying to get her business, now mobile, reestablished so she can provide for her family. She has already contacted local officials about rebuilding lower income housing in a town that she has called home for so many years. She hopes that the money raised on this site will help rebuild her home, her family life and her career, in her beloved community. She is humbled by the generosity of friends, family, casual acquaintances and complete strangers. She knows there are others worse off than herself and is grateful for what she still has.
Jenna and her family have opened up their beautiful home to so many of us over the years. Due to the massive flooding, that home is gone, but their spirits remain strong! Rebuilding will be long and hard, but with the help of her strong circle of family and friends, it can be done! Every little bit helps!
My name is Robin, I live in Florida and have been through a devastating hurricane. I, like many of you, have been a close friend of Jenna's for over 15 years. She has seen me through the best and worst times of my life and I would do anything for her and Jade and Jeff.
Because the town of Lyons is shut down indefinitely, Jenna's hair salon, The Lyon's Mane, is inoperable, but she still has a 16 year old daughter to support and raise and bills that need to be paid. They all need clothes and food and simple provisions that we take for granted every day.
Jenna is a very generous person, offering to do free house calls to many of clients who are also victims of this natural disaster. She doesn't take more than what she needs and any money collected on her behalf will certainly be used in the right places.
If anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Girl, we move there May 1st officially!! Our house was hit by a mudslide, but is restorable so although a huge project, we so understand. Our hearts ache for all the loss and unsettled times. Although your home was amazing, you made that home the special place it was. So cheers to a new beginning and lets recreate the new Jenna sanctuary we all so loved!!
