Help Melissa after Fire destroys Trinkets

Let me introduce to you my friend Melissa whom I have had the great pleasure to known for 29 years. I can't even begin to imagine how she is feeling right now.
This woman just opened her dream boutique a matter of weeks ago, only to loose everything in a fire through the night.

Melissa, her husband and their 2 boys moved to Spencerville just 2 years ago
and it has been her dream to open a boutique even before then. Melissa has not only been struggling during the pandemic like most of us, but also learning to cope with the loss of her Mother only 6 short months ago.
Rather than have these life changing events hold her back, she used them to help fuel her dreams and make them a reality. With Spring in the air, a new business underway, there was hope in the air!

Trinkets Boutique was also a great supporter of many local businesses and artisans as she carried their products and items in her boutique. This woman was just getting started.  

I do believe in helping one another, especially those that help others.
Melissa has been an advocate for the homeless for many years and started Pouches for a Purpose to help them through different seasons while living on the streets. She not only fund raised and gathered supplies including snacks, water, sunscreen, personal hygiene items, socks, hats, mitts etc and filled small backpacks she delivered them personally to those in need on the streets and also helped when she donated some to teens in need in the Lanark area.
This is reason enough for me to reach out on her behalf and ask for the community, fellow business owners and women to please help out and pitch in to help Melissa re-open in a new location.

Together we can make a difference.
Every share and every dollar matters.

Thank you in advance ❤️
