Merkledove Family

Most of you know Mickeal and Merk and how amazing these two are. Many remember them from Cocoa Beach and  Atlanta and I am blessed to call Mickeal my best friend and can say without a doubt that  she is always doing for others and is always there when the going gets tough.  Its now time to lend a hand to Mickeals  family because they need it more than ever!!   

Tonight in a freak storm,  lightening hit the main pipe in Mickeal and Merks new home, causing smoke and flood damage.  Everyone is ok,  however there is about 3 inches of water in their home.  They are staying at a hotel tonight and a rough estimate of damage is placing them out of their home for about six months. I am asking tonight for everyone's help to give whatever you can, no amount is too small and you are truly giving back to someone who has given back to so many people in our community.  My goal right now is $5000, which may seem like a lot but if you look at their deductible of $2400 and the loss of food, clothing and other items plus having to find a place to stay for six months well the thought is overwhelming.  I cant imagine what they are going through but i know our BBW community is strong and full of amazing people who are there to help one another.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart and  know that Mickeal and Merk are grateful for any donation you can give.  If you need other ways to donate please feel free to reach out to me.  I can provide you with her zelle and paypal information as gofundme will not allow me to post it.
