Helping after the House Fire

$4,649 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 71 people in 61 months
On Monday March 3, 2014, Beth and Marcel's home was completely damaged by a house fire.  The majority of their possessions were destroyed or damaged and there are many things that they will need to start over again.  Please join us in supporting this wonderful family so that they can focus on helping their children and themselves recover from such a traumatic event in their young lives.  Thank you!!

Beth and Marcel have been so overwhelmed, as you can imagine, getting their lives, and the lives of their children back to some sense of normal, so Amy McKay and I, Mark Douthwright, were more than happy to take on the task of organising this fundraiser on their behalf.

This is why you may notice that when you make a donation, it will say you have a made a payment to Amy. This is normal. I manage things here on GoFundMe and FaceBook, and Amy takes care of your donations as they come in through her PayPal. Amy is then able to make sure Beth and Marcel get their funds.

Thanks again to all of the wonderful people who have donated. Your generousity is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Mark.

On behalf of Beth, Marcel and the kids, a BIG thanks to all the wonderful people who have donated.
The family has found a temporary home until July, a small house that still has them living here in the neighbourhood. Yay!

Please help this family any way you can. Beth is a fellow home daycare operator and she passed along a client family to me once that went a long way to keeping my business going. Let's help her and her family keep going too. Thanks again, Beth and best of luck to you and your family.
