Hi, my name is Michelle, and I am fundraising for my cousin Jen and her family who have just had their home and all of their personal belongings burned in the White Rock Lake fire. Jen and her husband Chris have three school aged children, and her mother Tanaya, also lived in the home with them. They are both local small business owners—Jen operates a cleaning business and Chris operates a landscaping company. Both rely on the summer season for their yearly income and sadly, the evacuation has had a huge impact on them. Also, all of their equipment has been lost to the fire as well. So, not only have they lost their home and their belongings, but also their livelihood as well. Jen and Chris are the most generous and kindest people I know and it breaks my heart to see them go through this. I am hoping to raise money for their family so that Chris can purchase essential equipment so he can continue working and so that they can get by financially for the next few weeks.
Thank you to everyone that took the time to read this.
