Help Alexa recover from home fire.

We are rallying to help our dear friend Alexa recover after her home was destroyed on Thanksgiving. Fortunately, no deaths occurred but the damage is overwhelming. 

While having Thanksgiving dinner with loved ones out of town, Alexa received notice that her next door neighbor's home was engulfed in a 4-alarm fire. The fire and its aftermath destroyed several buildings, including the apartment Alexa had just moved into three weeks prior. Though thankfully, some of her things were spared, nearly all her furniture --including a couch, a mattress, and all of her office -- all kitchen supplies, electronics (surge protectors, sd cards, hard drives and possibly data recovery, photo accessories, cables, etc.) and a variety of other personal objects were damaged or destroyed by smoke and water. As a freelancer, her livelihood depends on her materials and equipment. With no renters insurance to help clean, repair and/or replace items lost or impaired, our hope is to help Alexa get through this immediate crisis with some financial support. 

With the urgent need to haul what’s potentially salvageable out of the ravaged apartment, and the urgency to clean and repair anything that can be saved, we are estimating costs for expediency. While all funds raised will go directly to Alexa, she will donate any proceeds in excess of cleaning, repairing and replacing necessary items in order to contribute to the well-being of her mutually displaced neighbors. Any donation, in any amount, is very much appreciated. Thank you for your time and consideration.
