Caroline&Ryans Apartment Burnt Down

$10,965 of $10,000 goal

Created December 17, 2017
As some of you may have heard my dear friends Caroline & Ryan got a phone call on December 14th with devastating news that their New York apartment had caught on fire in just a matter of minutes. The backstory: Caroline and Ryan were both at work when this happened. Their dog walker had dropped Charlie off at their apartment around 12:30ish and everything was fine.  Luckily, their neighbors were home during the day and started smelling smoke in their apartments and the hallway. They eventually realized where it was coming from and called 911. At 1pm (just 30 minutes later) they received a call from the police that there had been an electrical fire in their apartment. They are so thankful the Firefighters were able to get there in time to, most importantly, save Charlie, but a majority of the apartment (and everything in it) was not salvageable. They lost TVs, beds, couches, rugs, electronics, kitchen appliances, clothes, shoes, dog related stuff etc. I am sure everyone can relate to that one time your pet chewed up your favorite pair of shoes, right? Can you even imagine losing your entire home? I sure can’t. 

Caroline and Ryan are the most kind, giving people and were on the fence when I mentioned starting this account for them. They are currently living with friends as they try to find a new apartment, but it will take time before they are able to furnish a new place. How can we help? Any donation (big or small) will help them get back on their feet replacing household items, clothes etc. With it being the "season of giving" I hope everyone can give a little to Caroline and Ryan who need it the most right now. We thank you for your help in advance, as I know they do too. They are so appreciative for all the love and support they've already received.

If there are other ways family and friends would like to contribute please don't hesitate to reach out to Caroline's sister, Julia O'leary 

Below are some disturbing pictures of the aftermath...

You guys are amazing!!!! We’re only $450 away from our goal. Let’s try and get there before Christmas so if everyone can continue to spread the word i think we can do it. And of course donations can still be accepted after we hit our goal : ) remember they still have no apartment or furniture so this will be one of the best gifts they receive this holiday. Thanks everyone again for your donations and help thus far.
