Goodwin Family Phoenix Fund

Hi there!  Dance Across the USA is a family, and one of our family members needs our help.  Layla Goodwin and her family suffered a loss yesterday, as fire destroyed their home.  A friend of theirs reached out to me to let me know, and while we can certainly replace any of the DATUSA things missing, there is going to be so much more that they need.

My wife Leigh-Ann suffered a similar loss as a child, when her house burnt down.  They lost everything - every photo, trinket, plate, dance costume, and poster.  While every situation is different, we think we have a pretty good idea of what they are dealing with, and believe me, it's a ton.  While I do not have all the details of the Goodwin's  loss, here is a link to an article about the fire from their local paper -

Anything that you can offer to help, I am sure will be appreciated.  Like a phoenix, let’s help them rise up again. Thank you so much!
