Fire Recovery Aid for Fran & Chris

32448382_153530547831303_r.jpegTwo very dear friends of mine, Frances Broholm and her husband Chris, were victims of a fire this morning that destroyed their home. The damage was severe. They lost everything, her two sons were injured, and their bird and bearded dragon died. They are in desperate need of assistance. 

I am starting this fundraiser with their consent in order to accomplish two things:

1) To assist with replacement of lost items to get them back on their feet (clothes, shelter, basic furniture and appliances.)

2) To assist with medical expenses stemming from her sons’ injuries as well as to help replace medications that were lost in the fire. 

Fran, Chris, and their family are some of the kindest, most selfless people I have the privilege of knowing. They don’t deserve this. If anyone can find it in their hearts to donate whatever they can, it would be gratefully appreciated. 

Thank you.
