Rebuilding PeanutDudes

Hi Friends! 

As you may know, Amy Chester's "office" - the storefront where she makes and sells specialty nuts, was broken into on October 11, 2014 and everything in the store was either destroyed or stolen.

Her small business supported herself and her children and was their primary source of income - not to mention the culmination of untold thousands of hours of work and love that went into making it something that she was (and is) very proud of.

Well, the people who broke in took everything - literally, everything - that made the business possible. The entire store was gutted.

It's a TOTAL LOSS. Everything is gone...
Display cabinets
Display Shelving
Industrial Shelving
Cash register
Fax machine
They even pulled a sink off the wall

She is not able to replace everything, as the store was not yet insured at the time of the break-in. So, we are trying to find some way to rebuild and restore her small business.

I know times are very tough for most people, and asking for help, in general, is not easy. But, without help, Amy's business just cannot be rebuilt due to the financial burden it would place on her. Amy is willing to do the work to rebuild, and her friends are willing to help, but we financial assistance to purchase the items that were stolen or destroyed, and also to pay for insurance to ensure that, in the event this ever happens again, this burden will never again have such an impact.

So, if you feel moved to help, we are asking for donations to help Amy rebuild PeanutDudes and to get a once-thriving and growing business back on its feet and Amy's family able to support itself once again. 

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and for any support you can help with. We also welcome your prayers and good thoughts at this very difficult time! 

Thank you!!!

Friends of Amy and PeanutDudes :)
