Canvas Tattoo rebuilding after fire

$8,095 of $10k goal

Raised by 95 people in 2 months
Angela Morabito  PRIOR LAKE, MN
On Monday night, a light ballast caused a fire to break out in the building The Canvas has known as home for 12 years.
Fortunately, no one was hurt and everyone walked away unharmed.
The unfortunate side of this all is obvious; if we aren't working, we aren't making money. And even worse, we lost a majority of the tools we use for our craft on a daily basis.
Smoke, fire, and water damage took a nasty toll on our beloved home away from home. Unfortunately for the artists, there is only so much insurance can cover for us- and it isn't much.
We are currently working on getting a more exact monetary goal together, but we needed to get a ball rolling and get back to being able to do the only thing we know how to.
We need your help now more than ever to get back on our feet.
We appreciate anything you can give.
Keep an eye out for any fundraising events we will be running in the future too.
Our clients and friends are how we are able to do what we do. Your support has been amazing and we can't wait to see you guys in wherever our new home may be.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
The Canvas Tattoo crew

Hello everyone!
As most of you know, I, Angela have been running the page and will be withdrawing funds to split amongst the artists equally via check.

We can't tell you how much we appreciate your support. Even falling short of our goal, we hope to see everyone at our benefit at the VFW in prior lake on a February 12th from 2-7pm. We would love to have you.
The ball is rolling on our new location and we can't wait to get back on our feet after this stressful and trying time for us.
Thanks a million, from the bottom of our hearts.

It's been a seemingly slow crawl through the whole process for us this week.
Looking at potential new locations, dealing with insurance claims, cleaning and salvaging what we can, and slowly getting back up onto our feet.

We are all blown away by the generosity of our families, friends, peers, and clients.
You guys are the real rockstars and we couldn't begin to thank you enough for shedding such a positive light on this tragedy.
Don't stop spreading the word! Everything helps!
Stay tuned for possible fund raising events we hope to get rolling as well!

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
Your kindness has all been absolutely moving.

-Angela, from the Canvas

It doesn't matter if it's 1¢ to $1, every penny counts, and every single one of them will go towards shop supplies and nothing else. I'm absolutely humbled by everyone's help.
