Our dear friend Ayyu and her children's home was severely damaged during the 7.0 earthquake in Anchorage, Alaska on November 30, and was recently declared a total loss - the cost to tear down and rebuild is less than repairs would be. She is continuing to work with her home insurance company, but it will be quite a process - with deductibles of $45k for damage repairs and $9k for living expenses, donated funds will be used to help with immediate and long-term costs associated with moving and rebuilding.

Please join this campaign and share widely as we lift up Ayyu and her family and offer our support as they work through this process of repairing their home or relocating to ensure their safety. You can also donate directly to Ayyu through Facebook or her bank account, details to come.

Gofundme campaign organizer required info: My name is Helena Jacobs and I live in Anchorage, Alaska. All campaign contributions will go directly to my good friend Ayyu's bank account for her to withdraw and use for disaster relief, including, but not limited to: home repairs, relocation costs such as moving and storage fees, short term housing rental costs, fees for inspectors, contractors, etc.
