I've only met Donnarence of My Lucid Intervals a few times (and only this year) but I've been following her blog for about three years now. She's my favorite resource for the most amazing drugstore beauty finds! She really hunts for good bargains that most people would miss, and I love her and her blog for it.
I was shocked to hear that her house burned down in a fire last Christmas. :( Thankfully she and her family are safe, but almost all of their belongings were lost in the blaze. That's a terrible thing to happen to anyone, worse that it occured on what was supposed to be the happiest day of the year. :(
Donnarence and her mom. I think this was the day she had her oath taking as a lawyer.
Thus, I would like to ask for your help. If you have any furniture or appliances that are in good condition but don't use anymore, perhaps you can pass them on to her family (got this idea from Shen). Cash would also definitely be appreciated. If Donnarence and her blog ever helped you out, or brought a smile to your face, please send her help. She's a wonderful, sincere, and sweet person, and she deserves better than a fire on Christmas this 2012.
You can contact Donnarence at her number 0915 128 1232 if you need to coordinate anything, or even just to send her love and encouragement. You may also deposit monetary help to her bank account:

Thank you for reading this post. I know it's a bit of a stretch to ask strangers to help a stranger, but I believe that the local beauty community always looks out for its own.
