Mary Beth Temple has been displaced due to Hurricane Florence. The town house she was renting was flooded and deemed uninhabitable by the city. She's found temporary housing for now, but has to be out by the first of the year. The majority of her belongings were destroyed, including the small, video recording set up that she used to make craft videos and bring in 80% of her income.

Mary Beth Temple is a crochet, knit, sewing, and craft designer. Her website is hookedforlifepublishing.com I've known her for years as a mentor and a friend. She's been through the wringer with this whole ordeal: evacuating, waiting for word on her place, and then trying to salvage what little she could from her flooded place. Mary Beth has been a fixture in the yarn and craft communities as long as I've known her. I know that yarnies and crafters are some of the kindest people around, and I started this Go Fund Me so we could help one of our own.

As Mary Beth has said on her blog: "Many people have asked what I need, which is generous and much appreciated. But especially at the moment, I don’t need things because I have no place to put things, and most of the things I might need are here or on their way or I won’t need them until I know where I will live in a few months. ... I do need to raise some cash though, to save up for what I will need when I find a new place (deposits, a couch), and to replace the sudden expense I had with evacuation and moving (FEMA has done a walk through but I was not a homeowner so not sure how much they can help; my private insurance doesn’t cover flooding although they’re scraping together some reimbursement for the evacuation)."

Our goal is to raise enough money for Mary Beth to get into a new place (rent + deposits) and another $1000 to help cover all the expenses of beginning to rebuild her life.
