The Choudhry house fire relief fund

$11,865 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 158 people in 47 months
On January 3, 2015, The Choudhry family lost every "thing" they owned in a devastating house fire.  Luckily, everyone in the family got out of the house safely and for this they are truly greatful.
    Jason and Anne own the Wine gallery in Blairstown and have loved being a part of the community for the past 10 years.  Their three children, Adam, Tanya and Tara are all in college.  They are a close family and all of them have worked hard to stay and maintain what was a beautiful house on top of the mountain.
   All of us who know them know that Anne and Jason are very tremendous, generous, giving spirits.  They have always enjoyed sharing  everything they could with family and friends.  Anne gives much of her time to caring for those less fortunate.  She volunteers and face paints for needy children and has worked at Willow Glen.  Just last week she conected with a network for homeless families and was so excited about being able to serve.  Her exact words were, "I have so much, it's time to really get serious about giving back."
    With this horrible turn of events, this beautiful family are now the people in need.  This site is for those of us who can

 help them get back on their feet.

Good news! The Choudhrys move in this weekend! I am so happy the whole family will be under one roof again. They were able to rent basic furniture pieces which is great! Now is the the time for people who offered some odds and ends early on to get in touch. If you have a working appliance, an extra bookshelf, some kitchen utensils, that type of thing, give me a call. I'm keeping a list of what they have and what they might need. Thank you all so much for you continued and unbridled generosity!
Love,
Janice

Please read a message from Anne:
"I am sorry it has taken so long to get back to everyone, understandably, we have been dealing with a lot of insurance needs, phone calls and looking for a rental home. We have found a home to rent and should be moving in on February second.
All the love and prayers have carried us through this tough time. We have been overwhelmed with all the support of so many wonderful people! We are so grateful for all of you! Thank you so much! We love you all!
The Choudhry Family"

We have all succeeded! We reached our goal in less than 4 days! As a result, five people can breathe a bit easier during a very difficult time. Thank you all so much for showering my friends with such love and support. I don't know of any more deserving people. Our friends are both overwhelmed and uplifted by your extreme generosity. We don't have to stop here either, but, please take a moment to congratulate yourselves for being so caring and giving!

Amazing! We are almost 3/4 of the way to our goal in just one day!!! Thank you all so much for your incredible generosity. Every little bit helps indeed and the Choudhrys are feeling all your love and support. I know yesterday we all felt helpless and today you have shown that everyone can make a difference. From helpless to hopeful in twenty four hours! It's so heart warming to see. Lets keep it going!

Freecycle is a great idea. I have given and taken from them. They fairly recently furnished their dining room and added some living room pieces. I'm wondering if the furniture store would consider donating furniture or offering a deep discount.

They should also check out Freecycle.org. I've pretty much furnished my entire house with very nice pieces people gave away for free.

When they have found a rental, let me know. I have lots of household items I am sure that would be helpful when starting from scratch.

I too have many household items that I would be more than willing to give to them. I am sorry that this happened, but was relieved to hear that your entire family was able to make it to safety.

Like the ladies below me have comment is there a need for other items as well, such as clothing and household items? If we all have stuff we can give them the money being raised can be used for whatever else they need. If anyone in touch with them can let us know that'd be wonderful. We'll all spread the word. A lot of people want to help :) To the family, I'm so sorry you're going through this...
