Last night (July 16th), my mother's (Linden Morris Delrio) house was destroyed in a fire that engulfed both her and her neighbour's house on Chilliwack Mountain:
Luckily my mother and her partner Marlowe are both safe and sound, but we are all devastated by the loss of their belongings. They will need to rebuild their life piece by piece over the next many months, starting with what they have now: the clothes on their backs, their wallets, and a single laptop.
We'd be so grateful if anyone could donate to help my family get back on their feet. This house was their life's savings and even more upsettingly, my mom's paintings -- her life's work as an artist -- were also likely lost in the fire.
Any and all help would be appreciated. Thank you.
Holly Burton, Linden Morris Delrio, and Marlowe McConaghy
