Oprah:
As a woman who has survived the loss of her entire home to fire, I want to help. For those in California who don't have friends/family to help them -- if they can get to Central Illinois I would love to provide them with a safe haven for as long as they need it. I can sleep 4 people "comfortably", and up to 10 people if some don't mind sleeping in recliners or on air mattresses, I've been unemployed for over a month, so I can't supply gournmet meals -- but I'm a good cook so nobody will go hungry! I'll also try to help them realize that this devestation can lead to better things and blessings, and I'll make them smile and/or laugh again if it kills me. They can transact their personal business from here, by phone or internet, and I only live about 5 miles from the local airport in Champaign, IL (CMI)so they can feel safe and secure in minutes from the time I pick them up. I want to help anyone who needs a little "safe" time and a friend. Since you have a house in the neighborhood and perhaps know some of the people involved, and you are who you are, I thought maybe we could work together to help a family, or two or as many as possible, who need it. My home is open to those in need...help me share it with those who need it!
Thank you,
Sylvia Mize
