Shelley's Fire Relief Fund

The purpose of this gofundme account is to help my mother in law who has just lost everything. Shelley is an incredible woman who lost her home to a fire on Thursday, August 10th. Shelley spent over 15 years building this log home for herself and her 2 sons.  So much thought, talent, hard work, strong muscle, tears, patience and love went into building this home. 
Shelley is a nature oriented person who lived off the grid. Because she lives off the grid, and because of the lack of a local fire department, home insurance was not available to her.
The goal is to raise money to help her get back on her feet as best we can. Shelley is someone who never lets you leave her home without a care package and doesn't show up to your home without a cooler full of food. It is heartbreaking to see her have to go through a tragedy like this .  She is constantly bending over backwards to help others and is such a pure and truly lovely woman.  Whatever funds you can help with will be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
