Team Nina foundation

Hello to you all

My name is Kiah Turner and I am here to tell you a little story that has hit my family very hard, especially one very special person that is so so close to my heart. Her name is Nina Turner. Nina is probably one of the most honest, caring humans you will ever meet. She has worked so hard all through out her life and has achieved so much. She is my beautiful aunty and I look up to her like a mother figure. She has done so much for me in the past when I was a troubled teen, so now it is my turn to help out when she needs it most. 
 
On the 18th of November on a late Tuesday night, I got one of the worst messages of my life. Telling me that Nina's house was up in flames. By the time I arrived to her house, the whole street was blocked off and the fire had been put out and the house had been destroyed.  Nina was safe but we later found out her partner of almost 2 years, Doug had passed away in the house.  I don't think anyone will understand what Nina is going through. Losing not only her partner but the house she proudly owned and worked hard at making it her perfect home. Not only was this her home but she also ran her 13 year old business from home too.  She also lost so many valuable memories that will never be replaced as money cannot buy these things back. And at the moment Nina is wearing clothes from her mother's wardrobe and sleeping in their spare room with her beloved dog, Barry. 
 
So this is where myself and hopefully the help of everyone else comes into play. I want to try and raise as much money as possible to help Nina get back into her house and back into a normal life. I hope this story has touched all of your hearts in one way or another. Any donation will help, whether it's  $5 or $50. Every little bit will help us get one step closer to getting Nina back on track. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my story.
