Hurricane Harvey Ate My House!

When hurricane Harvey struck the Gulf coast, it filled over capacity the reservoir that is behind Mica's house in West Houston. There was about 3 1/2 feet of water in the house and the neighborhood was inaccessible until yesterday, when our friend Dan courageously went there to see what happened. After 7 days of floodwaters, virtually all her possessions were dissolved, covered with mold, and lost to the flood. It will cost approximately $25,000 to empty the house, tear out all of the drywall, and remove the appliances, kitchen cabinets, insulation, furniture and everything else. Then they will do drying out and mold remediation. She will end up with an empty shell of a house. She will also then need money to fix the house back up. Any donation at all will be much appreciated. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Hi friends, as some of you know, I lost my house and everything I own in hurricane Harvey. It is going to take a lot to rebuild. In the time since I set up my go fund me page, I have had a few very generous donations, but not enough to really help get my house livable again. I am hoping you will share this on your Facebook page so that it will spread and more people will see it. Thank you so much!

A lot of small donations add up!

I have decided to try to fix the house one room at a time. First to make the bathroom work again. Then I would drywall one bedroom. That gives me a space to camp out. Of course the air conditioner and heat systems must be replaced before I can actually live there. Oh it's overwhelming! But with your help I can get started... So thank you so much for any help you can give!
