Beauty World: Ferguson, MO

Hello, my name is Jun Hee Lee. I created this account for my parents because they don't have Facebook. For 6 1/2 years, my parents (Baek and Su) have run a small business beauty supply store in Ferguson, MO.

During the rioting, the  windows were smashed and a bomb was thrown into the store. Luckily for the sprinklers, the building didn't catch fire, but much of the inventory that wasn't stolen suffered water damage and the basement is flooded. There is no power because Ameren has shut off the electricity as a measure of safety.

My parents would like to wholeheartedly thank their customers, neighbors, postal workers, and everyone in the Ferguson community who came the next day with food and water, helped clean up the broken glass, and assisted with boarding up the walls. Words cannot express how grateful they are and I am for all of your help. Thank you! We're also very thankful and appreciative of all the calls, e-mails, and prayers!

My parents hope to be back in business by Christmas as construction is estimated to take about a month. Every little bit helps, and if you can't donate, a simple share is more than enough. No donation is really expected as we really wrestled with even creating this account, but we do ask that you keep us and this great little city in your hearts and prayers during these trying times. Thank you for taking the time, and we wish you all the happiest Thanksgiving!
