Rebuilding Meow and Barks Boutique

I'm still in disbelief.  The boutique and Corey's barber studio were both destroyed by Irma.  We have to replace everything!  We lost store fixtures and furniture, barber chairs and equipment, and inventory.  This is so heartbreaking for us.   We have to rebuild on our own including replacing the interior of the business to prevent mold and electrical repairs.  This is going to be costly for us and we're losing two incomes at the same time.  

We stepped out on faith trusting in God and started our own businesses.  We know without a shadow of doubt that we are living our full purpose.  We've prayed for mercy and have received it and now we're praying for blessings to rebuild.  Many have asked us over the past few days how they can help.  This is one way.  We’re seeking funds so we can continue to do what we love, service our communities and inspire our employees.  This is one of the hardest situations we've had to endure.  The tears have finally stopped flowing and we're ready to restore.  We love you all and we're so thankful in advance for your love and support.
