Kris and her three beautiful children and their dog Frodo have lost their home a week before the holidays due to uncontrollable mold infestation.  All of their belongings have been compromised and the spores are multiplying so rapidly no one can control it.  They have even found mold spores on their drum kits.  Here's a part of a message I received from her: "remember Maeves beautiful tree top room , where you once stayed, spore growth took it all out bed, mattress pillows , curtains, books, her art, keyboard drum equipment, make up, everything ! In 2 days everything in her room turned black."

All clothes, personal items, linens, carpets, bedding, every single thing in their home is compromised.  Their dog had appeared sick and as if he was aging very quickly.  A few days out of the house and he is running around again. 

Kris and her children are requiring to replace their material items.  More importantly they need medical care and Kris recently lost her job.   She is an art therapist and art teacher for early childhood development.  

Please consider making a donation so she can put together a security deposit and rent to move her family into a home.  There are legal fees against building management company as well as other fees.  They need to buy food as well.  They are staying temporarily at a friends house who is out of town for the week but then need to be placed somewhere.  

Thanks so much for all of your help!

Today we were able to secure a long term lease at a sweet little very clean home and we are all so grateful to all of you for helping us make this happen. We have had to leave everything behind and will be very frugally starting over and each of the 4 of us also desire to do so with heart felt intention so as not to ever clutter up our beautiful new home.
Thank you all.
We are working on getting healthy and moving forward. It’s going to be a long road and today was the beginning of a fresh new start and we are so so ready to make it the best new start a family has ever know.

Sending out all our gratitude and appreciation! ❤️as well as a quick update on our situation. We are still staying at friends working on getting us detoxed which will take some time and focusing on
Moving forward and get healthy,
I am getting counsel from Open Communities on handling the extreme situation in our apartment. It is a complex situation on many levels and there is a strong team of legal professionals helping me navigate it and litigating in our family’s behalf.
The kids and I will not be returning to live in our apartment and eventually will need to replace everything. I have begun the process of searching for our next home and my goal is to secure it at some point in January. All that you are raising here for all of us will go to helping make this possible, medical expenses and then humbly replacing the basics needed. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
We are sending out our biggest here’s to a new year wishes to each of you! Not sure how we would be getting thru with out all the love, support and generosity you have all been giving. Thank you!❤️
