Magalski's Gone With the Wind

On June 19, a tornado passed through our neighborhood taking down trees and destroying our home. Our girls, Mary (10) and Ella (8) were home with our amazing nanny when the tree crashed through the second floor. Luckily, the nanny remained calm and got the girls out safely until my husband and I could get home from work. Since then, our family has been taken care of by our wonderful neighbors. We are so grateful that our family is safe. It would have been so much worse if we had been asleep in our beds. Our house has sustained a considerable amount of damage and will likely exceed what our insurance will cover. Anything you can do to help is appreciated.
