Help Melanie Rise from the Ashes

Melanie, 24, grew up a military child. By the time she graduated from high school, she had attended nine schools in four different countries. Finally starting to settle down, my lovely daughter had moved the last of her belongings out of our house last week.

Tragedy struck this weekend.  Melanie’s home burned down.

Her roommate did not survive the fire.

Three pets were killed. 

Nothing from the home is salvageable.

Melanie was out of town with her job when the tragedy happened.  However, today she is getting back to charred rubble.

Please help now to Melanie get back on her feet again. While money will not bring back her roommate, pets, photos, lyrics she wrote, sketches she drew, her favorite books, or the blanket she kept since she was a baby, it will help her to get clothing, shoes and necessary household items. I'm estimating she will need about $5,000 to set up in a new place.

Melanie works very hard and must travel frequently for her job.  Please help to give her a pleasant safe place to come home to.

Thank you so much for your generous donations and for keeping Melanie in your prayers. Anything you can give will be very appreciated.
