We all thank you very much for the support while we work through the logistics of transferring funds/ownership/etc.  I am closing the donations to this page so that all future donations will be directed to the proper fund.  All donations that have been made to this fund are at this time being re-directed to the new fund as identified above.

My thanks again to all who donated.  And my thanks to those that will continue to support Natalie in the future.

Natalie DuBose owned a bakery in Ferguson, MO.  On November 24th, that store that she saved and worked so hard for was severely damaged by rioters after she pleaded for them to spare her store.

I saw the Natalie DuBose story on Fox2 and wanted to actually do something for once that might make a difference.

wow the haters just amaze me.....oozing with anger, resentment and jealously lol and newsflash people....instead of being so busy hating try reading....this site is 'closed' the other site is the open one and yippee over $200K and instead of being happy for ths person that had nothing to do with the riot mindset you instead choose a hateful attitude and sit there thinking your somehow a 'better' more deserving person?? Interesting. Human nature.....cant stand to see someone 'different' win.

This is very exciting and I am happy for this lady....as for the comment below on 'what' will the money be used for...HOW is that any of your or our business??..this fund is directed for this lady and to even ask such a question is mindblowing really...if you don't 'approve' of how she uses HER money then don't donate and don't make such petty pathetic comments. It's quite lovely that people are moved and willing to make a contribution but she certainly doesn't owe you a dollar by dollar accounting that is for certain!

I may be dull, but what will this money be used for, if Natalie has already reached her goal. I would like to support recovery of Ferguson, but how will this money be spent?

Not a single penny! Sorry - so long as the rest of us pick up the slack for what the thugs do, nothing will change. This woman needs to turn to her community for support so that they can take a good long look at themselves, their punk a** gang-banging offspring, and their Sharpton-led leadership.

Pls check with gofundme. I think if you transfer the money to her they will take their fee out, and then when she pulls that money out of her official site they will again take a fee.... Double fee time....
