Parr Family - Volcano Disaster

The Parr family needs our help! Our beloved Sister, Zusje, her husband Jon and their children have always dreamed of living in Hawaii. Their years of hard work finally paid off. After selling their home in Santa Cruz, California, they bought a beautiful 3 acre macadamia nut farm and home in Lanipuna Gardens near Pahoa. After just two weeks of moving to their home, their dream was cut short. The Kilauea volcano sent out lava devastating their new community and consuming their home and entire property. They lost  their life savings overnight and are forced to start over.

Anyone that knows the Parr family will agree that they are the most generous and kind people you will ever meet. They would give you the shirt off their back, but would never ask for money. We, as their family could not just stand back and do nothing. Anything you can donate will help the Parr family get back to living their dream.
