Help Wingerds Rebuild their Life

On July 12th our family's house that we built ourselves burned to the ground. Everyone is safe but we lost all of our posessions–cars, appliances, electronics, clothes, furniture–everything. The cause of the fire is unknown. 

We have insurance that will allow us to stay in a hotel until we find a rental and that  will cover the cost of the rental for one year. Insurance will also provide total coverage for rebuilding and furnishing a new house. 

We still need a lot of help, though. 

Both of our family cars were destroyed in the fire and we are asking for donations to help replace them. Additionally, we are asking for donations to support our basic living expenses as we navigate this difficult transition. 

We are most in need of money right now, but if you can't contribute financially you can:

-Keep an eye out for three bedroom rentals in the Grass Valley area 

-Bring us home cooked meals while we are staying in the hotel

-Share any photos of us that you have, especially photos of when the girls were little 

-Spread the word and ask your friends to contribute 

So many of you have already been incredibly generous in offering to help us. As our community reaches out to us we are realizing more than ever how much we are loved. Thank you. This has been incredibly devastating and your support means the world to us. We love you too! A home is where your family is and we still have each other.
