My name is Kari Randel and I live on the bench in Boise.The Boise International Market burned to the ground last night. I know from first hand experience what it's like to lose your families only source of income. In the long run insurance might pay but it does nothing to help in the short term. Bills will need to be paid, food put on the table, plus the loss of personal items. Many families had their future there and lost it over night. I cannot help financially but I know that many can. All proceeds go directly to the families of the businesses lost in this tragedy. Please help! There is a board set up to distribute funds. Tuesday we will be opening an account in the name of The International Market Family Fund. I will be working directly with the board to ensure every penny gets to those in need. My husband Shane is a chef at Life's Kitchen here in Boise and has taken his students on tours of the market and worked with vendors to teach the students how to make traditional Ethiopian and Iraqi dishes. The Market is a positive place for our community and we need to keep these vendors above water until insurance kicks in. Again, thank you all so much.
