Posted on May 18, 2014We're so close but yet still so far away. We had hoped to tap into the spring on the property that used to provide water to my parents and Grandmother's house but it seems that it has closed off over the years of no use. We're going to have to drill a well which is an expense we weren't prepared for. The money that has been raised for us so far has helped us with living expenses, storage for what we were able to salvage and what has been donated to us, the Soil Scientist to find a spot of land to perc on my parents property, and most importantly, the down payment on our future home. With the well and the septic we're still short about $5000. I'm not usually the one asking for help, I prefer to be the one to help, but this time I have to ask. My children are so excited to have a home of their own again in their future. We all are. We need your help to make this happen. Please donate if you can and even if you can't donate, please share the page and ask your friends and family to share. Copy and paste this status if you'd like so that everyone knows that there is progress being made. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! ~The Davis Family

Posted on May 15, 2014HEADS UP - The Davis Family's perk test was passed AND the mortgage was approved for the home to be placed on her parents property. This is GREAT NEWS and a tremendous Blessing, thanks to all of you!
Here's the kicker and why we need to share this fundraiser and raise an additional $5,000. The downpayment took ALL of the money raised and in order to move forward it's imperative that they are able to afford "well hook-up" and "septic".
I'm asking that all of you please share this fundraiser and the reason why to everyone you know. We are so close to getting them in the home they so deserve and with everyones help I know we can do this.
Thank you all for the amazing support - I will keep you updated as things progress.

Posted on April 23, 2014Snagged from Angela FB page: I've seen this so I know it's true. Although, I was in such a daze the first few weeks that I've just started remembering things in flashbacks. I may not remember the words that were spoken, or every call, text, and offer to help, but when I think back on the days and weeks following the fire my heart doesn't sink, it fills with warmth and love. That's what I remember. The warmth, caring, and love shown to us, our rainbow after the storm. I'm not saying it's easy. It's truly not. It's still hard for me to walk through a store and see the things that we had in the house, or see pictures of sweet Brynn and not have a sinking feeling in my soul knowing what we had, what we lost, and remembering the shear fear of that night. It's hard to breath through the panic attacks when I see a brush fire, or a light flicker, or smell anything remotely burning. It's hard, plain and simple, it's hard and it's something that I'd never wish on my worst enemy. However, no matter how hard it's been, what has kept us going was our family, our friends, and our community. You all are our rainbows and for that we will forever be grateful. Love to you all.
