A little background about our friend: Rana is a beautiful and gifted woman, who is incredibly bright and passionate about science and research. Rana's life purpose has been focused on building a research career working on ending terminal and chronic illnesses such as HIV. She is pursuing her PhD in Translational Biology and is currently working on finding successful HIV vaccines. As is the nature of being a graduate student, her income is fixed and she doesn't have a lot of "extra" to help her rebuild everything she's lost. Unfortunately, in addition to losing everything, she's learned she did not have flood insurance to protect her and help her gain some things back. The damage caused to her property and home is irreperable, and after four feet of water made its way into her apartment there wasn't much left to salvage. While we are grateful that she and her pup are safe, they have a long road ahead- she's not sure when and if she will find a place to live, and we know how hard it can be to rebuild a home so full of happy memories. She is currently without a home, but has been busy searching in hopes of finding a new place to move into within the next month. Our hope is that with these funds she will be able to put a deposit in for a new spot and also furnish her and Gingy Puff a new home.
The beneficiary Rana's goal is to allocate 40% of all the funds to be used for a deposit for an apartment, pet deposit and also first months rent. 50% will be used to furnish apartment- Rana needs everything from a bed, to couches, clothes hangers, vacuum, TV, iron, etc. Essentially anything a home needs to make it a home including personal belongings and essentials like toiletries. 10% will help with miscellaneous things such as groceries, other toiletries and cleaning products as well buying Ginger a new dog bed and dog food and supplies for her.
Any help would be greatly appreciated to help our friend get back on her feet. No donation is too big or too small, and Rana will be grateful for the help. Thank you!
