Fundraiser for the Lee Family

I'm Jethro Libutan a student at Durham School of the Arts. On Wednesday, April 10th, 2019, there was a gas leak that caused an explosion and completely destroyed one of Durham's shops - Kaffeinate. The purpose of this gofundme is to raise funds to help Kaffeinate rebuild its store. All 100% of the proceeds go to helping the owner rebuild Kaffeinate. Any amount will help! This campaign is legit (this campaign is just not as well known as the other campaigns being held)! I have already talked to the manager of Kaffeinate about my campaign and I've told her the funds will be given to the Lee Family.

As of April 12, 2019, according to the Lee Family (the people who own Kaffeinate), are closing Kaffeinate indefinitely. All funds contributed so far and contributions made in the future will now go towards the Lee family! But, also according to their Instagram post, they are hoping that one day they will be able to reopen Kaffeinate. Hopefully, in the long term, Kaffeinate will reopen. But for now, the funds will definitely go towards the Lee Family. I hope you guys understand my decision!
