Rebuild a home lost to fire

$1,040 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 26 people in 38 months
Ellie and her incredible husband are such passionate souls. Their home was a tribute to their life's passion. Each cabinet and bed frame imported from Cambodia - hand carved to represent their support and love for the Asian countries and culture. Each room was adorned with Buddha's and pieces which evoked emotion admidst tranquillity. I, their neighbor to the west, just moved to this nestled neighborhood and while we haven't known each other for years- there are those people in life who touch you in a matter of moments after meeting them. Ellie's love for life, passion for acceptance and open mindedness was inspiring to me and this is just a small way I feel we can give back to such an amazing person/family who was a victim to a tragic situation started in a neighboring home. My heart aches for all involved as this was such an unfortunate situation. Anything would help this family through this trying time as they figure out next steps for rebuilding their lives. Thank you so much.

Thank you to everyone who has donated. Ellie and Richard are ever grateful. The funds donated thus far have been received by the couple and their graciousness is insurmountable. The rebuild will of course be a long process and every little bit helps. So please allow me to again thank you from the bottom of my heart and theirs, for each contribution. This community is so powerful and lovely.

Laura, thank you for the note and I completely agree with you. However, I do not have one :( and felt that asking for one at this juncture would incure more pain. Ellie said her only photos of her and her Dad were in that home and Im sure you can imagine my asking for one of her could amplify her emotions now. I will try to get one in time. Again, thank you for your support and comment. I know Ellie and Richard appreciate all the support given here thus far.

I hate to say this, but you should put a picture of the family. People respond better to a photo of the people they are donating to, not just an image of a fire. I want the family to raise as much money as they can. :-(

I'm sorry, neighbor! I hope insurance is not super butt-headed and helps you out.
