Hurricane Help for Suellen

Hurricane Michael ripped apart north Florida what feels like just minutes ago causing immeasurable destruction almost everywhere it touched. If you have ever met me even for 5 minutes, you have probably heard me gush about my sweet wonderful Mama Bear. She lives about 15 miles from Mexico Beach in a small town called Wewahitchka where some of the worst destruction took place. Her and her husband both lost their cars, and their house that they JUST finished building with THEIR OWN bare hands received a ton of damage from falling trees. They have no power and no cell reception so the only information I’ve received is through a few bursts of WiFi she’s been getting. 

She’s the most selfless person I’ve ever had the honor of knowing and I get to call her mom. When I was able to speak to her through a brief muffled Facebook call, she told me “when the trees were crashing down around us, I could hear the birds and owls crying (their windows are shattered) so after the storm left I went outside to feed the birds because they lost their homes too” (GUYS ). 

Two weeks ago my mom bought ME a ticket to see her for her birthday because I was the only gift she wanted for her birthday (I MEAN ). I just moved to a new city and can not afford to help her rebuild financially. Though I tried to get an earlier flight I could not, but I’ll be flying down to see her on the 21st and would love to be able to bring some supplies to help them get their lives back together as quickly as possible. Any little bit helps. She would do the same for you (and also the birds) ❤️
