They were in the 500 year flood zone, so they didn't have flood insurance. The flooding was bad enough that they had to cut out drywall in every room and remove and throw out doors, baseboards, cabinets, and flooring. Most of their furniture and many possessions (including toys, clothing, etc.) were also lost.
Chris, Laura, and some family and friends worked hard to get the demo done. Next comes the rebuilding -- and that's where you come in.
When it's time to put the house back together (after it's dry), they'd appreciate hands-on help. But if you live too far or can't come help for some other reason, they'd also really appreciate some financial help.
GoFundMe wants me to mention that I'm in Fort Worth and that Laura and Chris will be receiving the funds directly from GoFundMe. I just set this up and will help administer it, but they will be the ones receiving all financial gifts. Anything you give will be used to rebuild and replace the things they lost. Please do what you can to help out this sweet family.
