Do you have home owner insurance or renters insurance? You need to!! Even if you think you can't fit it in your budget this personal story will make you pick up the phone and call your insurance agent tomorrow morning!!
Design team member Darsie Bruno was awakened Tuesday morning by neighbors yelling that the duplex she lived in was on fire. The fire ignited in the other tenant's side of the duplex.
We are so thankful that Darise and her son were safely evacuated from her duplex and that no one was harmed. Firefighters had to go through her side of the duplex to put out the fire on the neighbors side of the duplex and they fought the fire from her craft room. Of course her craft room was destroyed. Darsie actual had a price quote for renters insurance sitting on her desk. She wishes that she filled out that form for renter's insurance and urges each of to get insurance if you don't have it. The fee is so small in comparison to having to replace all your belongings.I can't imagine what Darsie is going through. She is currently being assisted by the Red Cross, they have provided her with hotel lodging for three days and she is looking for a new place to live. Many fellow designers, friends and blog readers have asked how we can all help Darsie.
The following companies -JustRite, Spellbinders, QuietFire Designs , The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and Splitcoast Stampers are working together on a fund raising campaign to help Darsie find a new home and put her life back together. Of course Darsie will need new craft supplies which we can all help with but what she needs most at the moment is donations so that replace the items in her house that have been damaged by smoke.
If you would like to help Darsie with a small contribution please click on the donate button below and you can make a donation directly into Darsie's paypal account.
I spoke with Darsie earlier today and she is overwelmed by the emotional support and prayers that have been sent her way. Any donation no matter how small will help.If you would like to leave a personal message for Darsie you can leave one here and we will make sure that she receives it or on her blog here.You can find Darise's beautiful work on her JustRite Pinterest Board here.
