Current Amount Raised
Lets get the momentum going! I have kicked off the fundraising with a $100 contribution. I will match the first $1,000 donated and then hope to have other donors that match donations.
I watched her rebound from her stroke. I have a good idea what it took to do that. I’m happy to have played a small part in it, but the credit is all hers! I watched her learn how to draw again and do her art with her left hand, no small feat. I watched her grow amazing things in pots in a parking lot that look like they came out of the finest vegetable garden, and I have learned to love her indomitable spirit! I watched her rally the other nursing home residents in good times and when they were up to their knees in floodwater in their wheelchairs, and I learned of her big heart.
I watched her suffer at the hands of Mother Nature during a 1,000-year flood. I watched as circumstances put her life out of her control. I watched as she failed to qualify for some assistance, was hours away when most of the flood relief help took place and passed her by, and was offered solutions that don’t meet her needs. I watched her handle all this with grace.

Recently, she expressed a desire to get back into her house and I’ve decided it is time for me to stop watching and help her get her life back. So, I’m going to raise the money necessary to fix her house. I will work with a contractor to insure that licensed professionals due the plumbing and electrical work and anything else that should be done by contractors. I will coordinate any local volunteers and her friends that want to help her by working on her house. I will do whatever it takes to help Deborah get home again. I would like to ask you to help me. The simplest way to do that is to donate.
