Help Marian Joy Ring After Irma

Hello friends.
Bonnie Layfield and myself, Laura Payne (from Florida) feel compelled to help our good friend Marian Joy Ring.
The monster hurricane named Irma that recently battered Florida has left our friend Marain Joy Ring and the Southern Most Black Dog Brigade in a bad situation. She is in need of funds to help her get back home and start making her house habitable again. She evacuated the Florida Keys for their safety. She is currently in Georgia with the gang.
Her home has taken quite a beating but she is unsure of the extent of damage until she can get back and assess for herself. The damage she is aware of is no power, no water, downstairs doors blew out so her home was exposed to the storm. The upstairs accordian shutter and window broke so there is wind and water damage inside the house. Trees down, fence down, storm surge caused flooding so there is mold inside.
Income will not be forthcoming as the resort she works for depends on tourists and was also devastated by the storm. No one will be visiting The Keys for quite a while. Clean up and recovery will take months.
Any help and support you can give will be greatly appreciated. No amount is too small. Prayers are also appreciated. Please share among those who know the kind and caring person Marian is. It's our turn to help her as she has helped us. Thank you!
I will be withdrawing funds and sending them directly to Marian via PayPal. Thank you so much for your kindness and support.
