Karen & Kerry's Hurricane Help Fund

My name is Joni Goodin and I live in Louisville, Kentucky.  My dear cousin, Karen Goodin Heins, and her wonderful partner, Kerry Hoeppner, have recently been devastated by Hurricane Irma.  They purchased a home in the Lower Keys in November 2016.  Hurricane Irma took half of their home and most of their possessions.  Both are employed - Karen is an amazing musician and Kerry is a brilliant artist with his own buisness called Art of the Palm.  All of his art supplies and many of his beautiful creations were destroyed by the wind and water of Irma.  They currently have no water or electricity and are hoping the remaining portion of their home is habitable.  They are staying with friends, travelling between Boynton Beach and Sugarloaf Key, Florida, while they determine the next chapter of their lives.  All money raised will help Karen and Kerry with expenses related to travel, building materials, replacing furniture/household items, clothing, and art supplies.  Karen and Kerry are both beacons of love and light in the world.  Many friends and family have asked how they can help these two wonderful people, and that is the reason I am creating this fund.  Any donation is greatly appreciated.  Thank you everyone so much, and so much love and peace to you all ....
