Rebuild Queen's Royal Touch

$13,016 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 462 people in 39 months
Thank you for taking the time to visit my fund and thanks to Kay Quinn, Anchor-Reporter for KSDK-TV KSDK, Greg Laposa from, Project Manager from St. Louis Regional Chamber and several others for agreeing to help us get back to work.

My name is “Queen” K. Barnes-Greene, I am or was the owner of  “Queen's Royal Touch Massasge, Barber & Beauty” on 1451 Chambers Road at the corner of West Florissant. 

My two small businesses were burned in the riots. The windows were kicked in, the roof was damaged, the ceiling has fallen, electrical wires are burned and there is smoke and water damage everywhere. Everything was damaged or destroyed in a matter of seconds.

I started my businesses after I left teaching in 2012 and used my retirement to open up this business. I wanted to show my family that having your own business was attainable. It took a lot of hard work, sweat and tears.

It's been truly a struggle and I had to make a lot of sacrifices but it was all worth it. This tragedy has broken my heart, to watch all the sacrifices go up in smoke brought tears to my eyes.

I am trying to not be angry or sad but to forgive, stay positive, and trust God in the midst of it all no matter what it looks like or how others actions have effected us.

I do want to thank everyone for all the support on Twitter, Facebook, and in the media, it has truly touched my heart.

Any small amount you might consider donating would be very appreciated by me and my children as well as my team.

Thank you
Mrs. "Queen" K. Barnes-Greene

We want to thank Jennifer, Carol and Ron Allen at NBC for reaching out to us again. We are truly grateful for people like them who are concerned about us. If you missed the segment, it's been a year since all this started and we have not relocated yet but will be very soon by the grace of God to a beautiful location. We are positive that everything will be better that it was before.

We have been focusing on family as you can see and we have a new bundle of joy. Her name is Layla and she was born July 25th. We are excited and are truly blessed to have a healthy family.

Please continue to keep us in your prayers. We are looking forward to getting back to work soon and taking care of our customers. Thanks again to everyone who has sent donations, prayers, cards and kind words of encouragement. We are forever grateful!!!

Didn't your insurance coverage Vandalism? I hope you have it in your present coverage. I know it costs more but when you actually figure it out, you'll see you would have been ahead paying a little bit more each month than having this big expense all at once. Or, at least put some money aside every month for this kind of contingency. I hope your life is on track now.
