Blessed by Chance Ranch-The Smiths

Hello!  My name is Kim Dahlberg I live in Oklahoma City, OK but this emergency campaign is for my brother Rick Smith, his wife Tasha, and his daughter Kadance.  They have a very small ranch in Aransas Pass/Rockport, TX. and it has been completely wrecked by Hurricane Harvey.  Their house is in terrible shape and will need MUCH work to be liveable again.  The bigger problem is that they have no home owner's insurance due to it being a medal building, they could not get insurance.  They also lost almost 50 chickens and my niece's peacocks she got for her birthday.  They take care of many rescue horses as well as offer boarding for other people's horses and thank the Lord, all the horses, cows, and dogs survived the storm.  My brother has a very small business delivering groceries to the tugs and boats that come through the port in Corpus Christi but the port is shut down right now.  Even worse, his truck was damaged in the storm so he has no income at this time.  Tasha is a school teacher which the school sustained quite a bit of damage as well.  They did their best to prepare for the storm but everything they own is now wet or destroyed.  Will you please donate anything you can to help them recover from this horrible blow and help them get back on their feet?  Please give what you can just as soon as you can.  Rick now has access to this account so he can draw it out as they need it.  Pretty cool huh!?  Thank you gofundme!  They are in desparate need of clean, dry clothing (laundry!).  They have food and water for now but will need more.  They also will need food for the animals soon.   Still no power so they need gasoline for generators.  The list goes on and on!  Thank you all so much and God bless you!!
