Asking for your Generosity

According to Wikipedia Generosity is the habit of giving freely without expecting anything in return. It can involve offering time, assets or talents to aid someone in need.
This is the reason I am asking for your GENEROSITY.

I know a wonderful family in Waterloo that had something terrible happen to their relatives in Grimsby last week.

It's easier if I quote Barb speaking about what happened to her Sister's home...

can't stop thinking about my sister Linda and Brian, and Wesley. Glad they are safe but still devasted for the loss of their home. I know you can't contact us right now but know you are in our every thought and in our prayers....
During the wind storms last week a tree fell on Barb's Sister's home.
When I saw that message I contacted Barb right away to find out what had happened.  This what I was told ..
Right now all that we know is they are homeless, left with nothing but the clothing on their backs. The house has been officially condemned. I spoke last lnight with Linda finally, as they had no means to contact people as the hydro and tellies were out in Grimsby...
...she is a tough, tough lady but this has broken her spirit and I am heartbroken for them. They barely escaped with their lives...
...niece is pregnant with her 3rd and was at Linda's house to tell her and Wes to leave the house because trees were starting to fall. She was picking up her son from the school behind Linda's house because the weather had turned horrific and she was worried for him.

After this devastation the family has been told by Disater workers that their home is condemmed.  They will not be able to go near their home FOR A YEAR.

Here are pics of what the house looks like now. 

They lost everything.  Right now they are staying in a hotel and have been told by the Disaster workers to find an apartment for the next year (there might even be the possibilty of them never going in & the house being bulldozed).

**This Saturday May 7th 2011, in Waterloo, Barb and her family are having a fundraising yard sale in order to raise some money to help her Sister's family.  I know a lot of us have lots of swag and other stuff lying around.  If you have anything you can donate please let me know so I can make arrangements to come and get it.  You can email twitter @those2girls or facebook my inbox lisamcdonald122
If you have large items I will put you in touch with Barb, as I just have a car.  I know many of you are busy, so even "porch pick up" will do. 

If you don't have anything to donate, please take some time visit the sale at
               104 Craigston Pl Waterloo between 9am-noon.

Thank-you in advance for YOUR generosity.  It is very appreciated and WILL make a difference to those it affected.
