It's hard enough to watch your family and home go through something like this, but being far away and not having the resources to help makes it that much worse.

 

Royze and I have been together for almost two years. She's become a part of my family and I have become a part of hers. Which is why it's even more heartbreaking to see her witness the destruction of her childhood home, and worse, the displacement of her family. Shelters are at capacity, safe places and hotels have been destroyed, and power will be out for weeks if not months. 

 

Royze has limited contact with her parents, cousins, and friends from home. International calls are expensive and with nowhere for people to charge phones, she has to worry about the safety of the people she loves most with limited information. 

 

When it comes to rebuilding, her father and uncle will have to purchase supplies and do their own repairs, trying to salvage what is left of their home including buying new roofs, windows, furniture, cleaning up the property, etc. Companies that sell materials spike their prices because they know people don't have a choice. Even basic necessities are insanely expensive. Cases of water going for $25. They will also have to finance repairs to their new car which was severely damaged in the storm. Obviously, some family things cannot be replaced. 

 

As we can't be there to help rebuild, it would mean the world to us to be able to send some financial support to Royze's family so that they have one less thing to worry about during this difficult time. I (Ashley) will be managing the logistics as Royze is focused on staying in contact with family and friends while keeping up with full time school and work. Thank you so much for your kindness, support, and generosity.
