Donate to help Teresa Martin recover from the fire

Donation protected
On Saturday, March 25th the unimaginable happened. My friend Teresa’s house was destroyed by a fire. Thankfully Teresa, Allegra and their two dogs Theo and Sori are all safe! Most of Allegra’s personal belongings as well as their family treasures were lost. Their cat, Hannah is missing and Teresa's car was damaged and can’t be driven.

Many people have been asking “What do they need?” How can I help?” The outpouring of love and support is truly appreciated. As one can imagine they are both a bit overwhelmed by everything.

On the bright side, the tiny cottage behind the main house was spared damage. "Birdhouse" is livable but will need a hot water heater and a shower (only a half bath there now) and a bedroom large enough for a bed and a dresser. Until everything is figured out with insurance Teresa’s plan is to enlarge the bathroom and make the tiny bedroom a bit larger as quickly as possible so she has a place to live and Allegra has a place to come home to in June after her semester in Seoul.

If you’re interested in helping Teresa and Allegra you can donate here or Cape Cod Five has set up a “Teresa Martin Post Fire Account” and they can easily take checks at the branch or mailed to 75 Brackett Road Eastham, MA 02642. All funds from this site will go to that account as well.

Thank you to everyone for reaching out and giving Teresa and Allegra words of encouragement and strength during this difficult time.
