THE PROJECT AS IT IS NOW
For as long as Don and Beatrice have lived on this farm, they have opened its doors to welcoming people. They started by welcoming single mothers with their young children, but it has most recently been a Bed & Breakfast.
With the current events going on in Ukraine, Don and Beatrice have decided to open up their home to anyone fleeing the country in search of a safe haven until they can make more permanent plans for their future. The bed and breakfast has 3 en suite rooms, large enough to welcome 2 or 3 small families. They are also turning some of the other rooms in the house into 2 more bedrooms, in order to welcome people more comfortably. There is a big shared kitchen and a spacious family room that is open to everyone.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP:
A WORD FROM DON AND BEA
For a while now, we have been saving up to build some units in one of our out buildings, in the hope to some day be able to host retreats for groups and individuals. But with the current situation, we have reoriented our goal to respond to an immediate demand: hosting Ukrainian families.
Our goal is to build 3 independent units in what used to be the farm's workshop, but which could offer 3 families the respite and comfort they need at this time.
We are currently:*this figure is updated as we get new donations
111 945 dollars away!* (includes repaying money borrowed from retirement fund)
THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN:
There is no way we can accelerate the timing of the construction without some help.
We are looking for financial donations to cover the costs of construction, and for volunteer work teams who would be willing to assist with the work itself. We have also been accepting donations of various kinds to help welcome our guests as best as possible. And we are open to your ideas, if there is any other way you'd like to contribute!
