Cristie and Lily's Hurricane Relief

Three years ago, my sister Cristie and her daughter Lily moved into their own home in the beautiful city of Mexico Beach, Florida.  They painted the walls, and decorated it, and made it their own sanctuary near the Gulf of Mexico.  

On Wednesday, October 10, Hurricane Michael made landfall 5 miles Northwest of Mexico Beach.  Hurricane Michael registered as a Category 4 hurricane with wind speeds of 144 mph, 2 mph shy of registering as a Category 5, the strongest hurricane to ever hit the Florida panhandle.  The city could not withstand the impact and has sustained catastrophic damage, leaving many homeless; businesses and homes completely flattened and washed away. 

My sister and my niece's home thankfully is still standing, but sustained flood damage, leaving their home uninhabitable.  They have a long road ahead of them and I would like to help them however I can.  Many friends and family have asked how they can help them as well, and right now financial assistance to support them get back on their feet and find housing while their town, workplace, and home are rebuilt is the best support we can provide. If you would like to help, any assistance would be much appreciated.
