Cali Cafe Explosion! Diana and Hernan need help!

Donation protected

We are raising money for Diana and Hernan, a young recently married couple who just had their dreams shattered by an explosion that destroyed their Vegan Restaurant.  Already struggling to make ends meet they are now faced with the overwhelming and unimaginable task of rebuilding their restaurant and repairing the damage to nearby buildings and vehicles.
 
They are a beautiful young couple who help their fellows and community at large through volunteering for charities and fundraising through bake sales for those in need. They also actively rescue, rehabilitate and find foster homes for sick or injured street dogs. 

During the Covid pandemic they have kept the restaurant open hoping to make enough money to support their mother and brothers who work there, often for free just to keep the doors open. 
 
Unfortunately, they did not have insurance. The explosion blew out all four walls of the restaurant and the roof collapsed destroying all of their equipment and furnishings.  It was felt all over the city.  Many surrounding buildings are also damaged, and a car parked across the street was severely damaged. Although they do not own the building they are responsible to rebuild it and for the surrounding damage.  This will require a lot of financial resources to repair, and this couple had already sunk their life savings into Cali Café which is completely and utterly destroyed.  They were struggling to just survive financially and will need help and support from their friends to rebuild.
 
They will be unimaginably grateful for any donation, large or small to help them get through this disaster and rebuild both their restaurant and their life.  They will not be able to do it without your help!
