A Lacombe resident is looking to make the difference for a family who earlier this year were forced out of their rental unit due to toxic mold.

The Poelzer family have been dealing with the loss of their home, possesions — as well as ongoing health problems.

Lyndall Cave a Lacombe seamstress met Lili Poelzer shortly after the family moved to Lacombe — with both individuals sharing the common traits of being seamstresses and practicing Christians. The two would become friends — with both of them having tables at the Lacombe Market — and cave decided she needed to do something after hearing about the family’s struggles.

“I heard the story about their rental house being full of toxic mold, and losing many of their possessions, and my heart went out the them. I wanted to help some way, but I didn’t know how,” Cave said.

She ended up landing on the idea of selling jewellery she had, with the intention of some of the funds being raised going to to Poelzer family.

“I have a bunch of jewellery from Beauty for Ashes Nepal,” she said. “I could sell it specifically to raise funds for Mike and Lili as they recover from mold. So I decided that for the month of August, half of all the sales from Lyndall’s Beauty For Ashes Nepal Page on would go toward Mike and Lili.

“The jewellery itself is fair-trade and helps support at-risk women in Nepal, so I was thrilled that I could be helping women both overseas and locally.”

Cave will be selling her product until the end of the month. If you are interested in purchasing jewellery to help the Poelzer family, you can contact Cave at lyndentreedesigns@nucleaus.com.
