Help Family Recover From House Fire

Ashley Bell and her two daughters were victims to a devastating house fire. The house is completely uninhabitable and nothing was left to salvage. Their adorable 3-legged pit bull, Face, was unable to make it out of the fire alive.

A month before the fire, Ashley's car broke down and she has been without it since. The transmission needs to be replaced and she's having trouble finding someone who can repair it. 

The family is left with no transportation and no home. In addition to the emotional trauma of losing everything, including a family pet, the financial burden is overwhelming. 

The family is in need of a new home, clothes, and food. 

The cost of a new transmission for her car including labor is about $800

Help us get the word out and contribute whatever you can, everything helps!

The GoFundMe is being operated by coworker and friend Michelle Wilhite, we both work at a non profit vet clinic in Austin, TX together.
