The youngest daughter of the Highlander family reaches out for help in restoring her family's home after Hurricane Irene's destruction.

The Highlander family was hit HARD by hurricane Irene in Virginia last night. Rebuilding and restoring what was destroyed will be a major financial struggle. I want to give all that I can to them, but I don't have enough. Help me help my family.

My Mom doesn't show it, because she's so strong, but I know she is worried sick at the possibility of never fixing her home. I'm crushed inside wishing I could give them all the money they need, but this is thousands of dollars beyond what I can contribute.

I called her this monrning to find out: the water pump backed up and flooded the entire basement, a new water pump has to be purchased, the flooring needs to be redone from the lifting of the tiles, and over 20 giant trees have to be cut and removed from the yard. The back deck can not even be accessed because of the large amount of tree debris.

I want to give the most amazing gift ever- peace of mind- the money they need to efficiently bring their home back to life. My family has always been so generous, full of hope and faith, and first to lend a hand to others. I dream of making this rebuilding project easier on their minds and souls. None of them know I am starting this project and I don't want them to know until I reach the goal. This will be the most wonderful blessing! We can do this. . . spread the word to all who can help. Thank you all so much. I can't wait to see the success and share it with my family .

(In case you're wondering... I'm the youngest child, their only daighter, and I live in Nashville. I didn't experience the hurricane first hand, but I am feeling the pain in my heart. I am trying to help them from afar!)
