£6,928raised of £20,000 target by 98 supporters

    Weʼve raised £6,928 to help Beth and Kin Thiessen and their 3 girls following the loss of their home, workshop, studio, and land to the Portuguese forest fires.

    Funded on Wednesday, 14th February 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Beth and Kin had to evacuate their home with their three children, driving along roads flanked with tree-high flames. Beth's mother was with them. They only just got out. They are now staying in a guest house in the city of Coimbra and have learnt that their whole property, their home, workshop, studio and land has been razed to the ground. What is more their whole community in the valley of Ben Feita has been burnt to the ground. At least 12 households have lost their homes. It is complete devastation. We wish to raise as much as we possibly can as swiftly as we can to allow Beth and Kin to regroup, to buy essentials such as clothes for the children etc and to see if they cannot start again in some way in Portugal where they have been settled for the past 8 years.. Please donate whatever you feel comfortable donating. Anything and everything will be deeply appreciated by all concerned. Thank you.

      News from Beth: "We step gently into every new day. Fires still rage in my sleep and mornings are spent shaking off the night but the world of three small children quickly surrounds me and the day carries itself and us along with it. The girls talk about our house being burnt and like we are doing, vocalise the things they have lost. We are so overwhelmed by the help we are receiving from friends, family and strangers we thank you all so much for being with us on the journey. "

      A big thank you to all who have reached out already to help Kin and Beth... they are hugely grateful for this support but as they come out of the shock the realisation of the task ahead is facing them. They have a friends house to stay in for now but Kin lost all of his wood work tools so needs to replace these before he can start anything. Please continue to share this page and help them get started.
