Amy is trying to build a wall everyone can get behind regardless of their political views! It is her foundation wall. A quarter of her foundation wall has colapsed thanks to all of the recent rains in the Wisconsin/Illinois area. The other 3 quarters is unstable and has shifted. Normally this wouldn't be an issue but her homeowners insurance has decided it's not an "act of God" due to the storms, it's flood related. She didn't get flood insurance because even now, her area is still not flooded. Why would she need flood insurance!!??!! The house is now considered unlivable and dangerous by the county. Mainly because without a stable foundation, the house gets to collapse in on itself. Amy is now responsible for paying the $40,000 to have her foundation wall replaced and have the house resupported. While she isn't poor or destitute, like most of us in this situation, there is just no way to come up with that kind of money in a few days. Since I can't be there to help her stare at the bricks, rocks, water and mud covering her basement floor from the wall collapsing at the moment, I thought I would help this way. As you can imagine this would cause a financial hardship on anyone. All I am asking is that if you are able, you throw a few dollars in the pot to help my BFFL. She is going to be absolutely MORTIFIED that I did this. She told me she has been humbled by the outpouring of offers to help and places to live for her and her family until the house gets fixed. This is what good friends and family do. The emotional toll is stressful both financially and physically. Again, not asking for anyone to foot the bill. Just help a little if you can. If you can't, please share this in case you know someone who can help. Thank you all!!
