Donate time or funds so that Rylie and his siblings have a home free of lead while still being able

How this will help

The Cerny family is fundraising for their home's lead abatement. Of their three kids, 2 year old Rylie has tested positive for high levels of lead, and 9 month old Kaeli is especially susceptible to lead poisoning from the environment around her. The total costs for lead abatement for the 6 bedroom, 4 bath home, are estimated to be just under $40k, which is OVER the total household income for the year.

"If you can not contribute financially, you CAN donate a minute of your time to share our story, tell someone about the dangers of lead paint, and ask for donations. We can work together to help our family back on our feet, help heal our poisoned child, and make sure that the efforts we are putting toward making a safe home DO NOT cripple us financially--because every child deserves a lead-free home. Renovate for Rylie!" --Leslie
