Help a family rebuild after Hurricane Sandy

On Monday, November 29th, our friend Verena Preis, her husband Michael, and their 9 1/2 month old son Anton, lost everything in the home they rented in Long Beach, New York to Hurricane Sandy.

Fortunately they are safe, but sadly everything they had was destroyed by the flooding that came.

Many others are facing this same devastation of rebuilding their lives. This family is far away from the support of theirs though, who are back in Germany and Denmark, which is why they need our help so much.

Anything at all you can contribute would be appreciated more than you will ever know. No amount is too small, even $5 can make a difference.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your kindness and caring...this will mean so much for this family.

Hoping all of you and your loved ones made it through the storm safely.
