Hurricane Florence-Flooding Relief

Our friends, Alicia & Tom, have severe damage to their new, beautiful home in Rocky Point, NC, from the flooding rains and overflowing rivers due to Hurricane Florence.  They built the home of their dreams and just moved in 6 months ago.  They had the home so beautifully decorated, and were so happy with it!  Unfortunately, the county did not require flood insurance since they said it was not in a flood zone (the picture tells a different story!), so homeowners insurance doesn't cover any of the damage from flooding. Many of the homes in their development have taken on 4+' of water, including Alicia & Tom's, which will take weeks to recede.  We are all so happy that they made it out safely with their fur babies, Layla and Izzy, but this situation is so devastating.  Let's show them our support and love!

I know they won't ask for help, so friends are doing it for them. The money raised will help with expenses incurred for repairing their home. Whatever you can do to help so they can return to their home will be so greatly appreciated!  And, please share!
