Carol Marine lost her home and everything in it

 Carol Marine
Carol Marine, the wonderful American
artist lost the home she shared with her husband,
David, and little boy in a massive fire in Bastrop, Texas.

They managed to escape with their computers, a
few small paintings, and are now in a campground
trying to figure out where to go next.  They will get
insurance, but they've lost everything. The main thing
is that her family is all fine.To make a
donation and read more please go to this blog
site and lets help our fellow artist out in a terrible time. 

It's easy to make a donation on PayPal, and I'm sure
any amount will help, and your support will mean
a lot to the family.  I have never met Carol Marine,
but admire her work greatly, and I feel horrible for
her losing the paintings in her home and studio in
the fire.

Have a helping-a-neighbour-across-the-world day.

Hi Linda,

Thanks so much. It's super easy to send a little bit of money on PayPal and I'm sure it all helps.

Oh, no. I'm so sad to read this. It is a kind thing for you to link back to her. I wish her family better days and a full restitution of home and belongings, even if they will be strange and new things at first.

What a horrible thing.

Hi Melinda,

This made me so sad too. You look around your house and imagine all of it gone. It's beyond imagining. I wish them all good too. Thanks for your thoughts.
