Costa Rican Fam Camping after Fire: Help Rebuild!!

A grandmother, her daughter and her 3 grandchildren (ages 7, 11, and 14) lost everything in a house fire in Guanacaste, Costa Rica last week.  They are currently camping and only have the clothes on their backs.  Everything burned, even their money.  We are working to find them everything they need in our community, but what they REALLY need is a roof over their heads.  I am asking for money and donations to build something so that they can move out of their tent and start to rebuild their lives. 

This is not the first hardship for this family.  They already lost their home a few years ago during a hurricane when they were flooded with over 5 feet of water.  Since then, one of the daughters has been fighting cancer and the grandmother was in a terrible car accident that left her unable to work.  They have suffered one tragedy after another; we are hoping to bring some good into their lives this Christmas.

Even a few hundred dollars can help this family begin to rebuild their lives.  There is no donation too small.  Our goal is $10,000+ in hopes that they can build something more comfortable than a tin roof over their heads.  Every dollar can help!
