When I heard the devastating news that Veronica Bartles’ family home in Maryland had been severely damaged while they were living here in New Mexico, I wanted to help. The Bartles are due to move back to Maryland this August. While on a trip back to Maryland to check on their home, Veronica discovered water damage and mold through the entire house. But the insurance company is refusing to cover any of the repairs.
A Go Fund Me compaign has been set up to help raise money for the Bartles. If you can, please donate to it. Even if it’s $5. Any amount would be greatly appreciated.
The writing community is filled with amazing people, so when I sent out a call for donations for this auction, many answered the called. We have some great items for the auction and I’ll list them below with a direct link to each one.
The auction will close on Monday, July 20 at 11:00AM EDT.
