Cindy LaRiviere and her family escaped a fire that took over her home the night of January 8th. Cindy is proud, strong and courageous and would never ask for help, so I'm asking for her.

While most of us were comfortable sleeping in our warm beds Cindy and her family were victims of a house fire that left her and her family in their pajamas, standing in the cold, watching everything they owned go up in flames. www.santacruzsentinel.com-www.santacruzsentinel.com"> www.santacruzsentinel.com-www.santacruzsentinel.com" target="_blank" class="txt1" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer">http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/news/ci_24880047/fire-ravages-two-homes-felton?IADID=Search- www.santacruzsentinel.com-www.santacruzsentinel.com

Fortunately they all got out safely, but their home was left uninhabitable and they are staying in a hotel which they entered only with the clothes on their backs. Everything they owned, the worst of which a lifetime of family photos .....gone.

Please join me in helping this family get back on their feet to start over. We would love to raise $5,000.00 to use toward securing a new place to live and a few essentials.

Any amount of donation will make a difference!!

Please send this request to as many people as possible!

Cindy has asked me to express her immense gratitude to all who have donated, offered items, prayed, given moral support and simply just shared words of encouragement. She would like you all to know that she has been so humbled by this whole experience and appreciates each and every one who has taken the time to care. Cindy wants you to be aware that she lost her laptop in the fire so is unable to respond to posts at this time however she should have a computer in a week and will be sending personal thank yous and responding to your posts. Thanks again for all the love and support!
