We got slamed We got flooded out !!
If you don't know me , I'm Arthur D'Agostino .
I'm raising money that I will use for repairs to our building that was damaged in the flood from hurricane Irma .
This building is part of our natural health business and a meeting place for our retreat center. .
There was extensive flood damage throughout the building
The money will be used to pay for the repairs and replacement of the drywall, baseboards, carpets and furniture and all related repairs .
I will be withdrawing these funds as received as to get these repaired started soon as possible
I love the Abundant Living Center, and our little house that we utilize as a place of business.
Offering Natural Health and self development through a variety of courses.
We also function as a Wonderful Retreat Center that other inspired people can use as a facility to promote their endeavors.
The Abundant Living Center lives on 13 acres of picturesque land with grazing horses and beautiful ponds.
It is our home, our retreat, and our livelihood.
As a professional martial artist a former National and International Champion and coach as well as a natural health educator, the Abundant Living Center represents my life's work.
The damage that our facility incurred from the hurricane Irma caused extensive flood damage .
Flooding is insidious in Florida because of the ensuing mold that it can cause. Mold that becomes a health issue and virtually renders your facility unusable.
There will be a need for mold eradication
As with all flood-damaged there is significant damage to drywall throughout the building As well as baseboards and door molding.
The wooden French doors are swollen from the water and they will have to be replaced as well. There was intrusion into the air conditioning system that will need to be repaired or replaced, landscaping and regrading of the surrounding area. The flooding and heavy rain also damaged to the private road coming into the property, which will need to be filled and grated .
I run a small self sustainable business, we've been devastated.
At any time this occurrence would be devastating to me and taxing on our finances, where there is no flood insurance, but we've just come through a two-year ordeal dealing with my wife's breast cancer. After three surgeries even with insurance the out of pocket
medical bills were significant.
If I had the resources I would use them to rebuild and the move forward.
The Humbling fact is I do not.
It is with great humility that I ask you to contribute what you can.
In Exchange we can offer add variety of thank you gifts for donations.
Please only do what you can, but please do what you can.
I always say this and mean it truly from my heart.
May all good things come to you, and go out into the world and make it a better place.
Thank you for your kindness and your generosity, and God bless you.
