Ripley Falls Creek tore through Cindy’s home last night in Michigan. She is going to need all sorts of support. Help me raise money  to help her reclaim her home, house her and her daughters (and her dog Monty). 
I have been friends with Cindy for 32 years, she is the most supportive, kind, giving person I know. She needs help.  Please donate (remember that 3% goes to gofundme so if you want a basic amount then up the donation by 3%)

Anyone have a gas stove to donate? We could even possibly get it to Cindy from downstate. Anyone?

It’s been a week and WOW! There’s been so much happening.
First THANK YOU EVERYONE for all the many ways you have supported Cindy and the girls during this event.! People on the ground, people checking in, people sending tools, people sending care packages, people sending notes, people updating other people, people spreading her story, people donating here, people providing /replacing ruined items. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! She feels ALL THE LOVE and is SUPER GRATIOUS!
(Keep sharing the gofundme please, we’re in it for the long haul)
I still have a few small wish list things to do. If you want another way to help from long distance please let me know.

tgt.gifts/CynthiaDrake We’ve made a gift registry to get some things for the temporary housing Cindy will have (Thanks Emily!) It’s at Target you should be able to find it by searching her name.
Spread the word.
If you pick something up that’s on the list and get it to her (from your home ot otherwise) let us know so we can take the item off the Target registry. Thanks again EVERYONE!!

So much is happening. First Cindy thanks EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU for your generous hearts! She’s posted video on her fb page including aerial footage of the MUDSLIDE (as its now being referred to rather than a flood). If you can, check out her page. She also posts immediate local needs, so if you are in the area, please check her page frequently.
Please keep spreading the word. Post the campaign on your social media and help her lobby the help she needs to STABILIZE THE HILLSIDE ABOVE HER NEIGHBORHOOD before the next rain event (MONDAY??)
Bless you all.
