Deacon Hurricane Relief Fund
This fund is to help a great friend and even better person, Chris Deacon and his family, try to recover after a devastating incident during Hurricane Irma. A large tree not only smashed directly into their home, causing the family to flee, It also made them witness it flood while a power line that came down with the tree, caused his wife's car to erupt in flames. They were helpless to do anything. This is one of the friendliest, most positive individuals I have ever met. He deserves some help and I hope we all give it to him, as much as we can.+ Read More

Thank you all for being apart of this great and humbling experience. Thank you for rallying up for a family who went through unimaginable stress and anguish. Thank you for just being the caring and blessed individuals that you all are. You all are rockstars!! There is another GoFundMe for the Deacon family live as we speak, so for those of you that know someone who can donate or share the link, please do so. Every bit of help counts in a very big way. <3 - Adam F.
Good evening everybody, I am tremendously thankful for everyone who came out to help support Chris Deacon and his family. The large amount that we were able to raise, and such a short period of time, shows how much everybody really cares and wants to see a family that went through something terrible get back on their feet. I ask only one more thing. As the campaign will end tomorrow, I would like everybody to give one more good solid effort and share this go fund me. Really share this thing as far and wide as you all possibly can. I will be doing so tonight. I want to see one final surge come in, before it finally finishes. This is been one of the best experiences I've ever had, because I was able to witness true love and compassion come from places where I never expected it to. Thank you all so much. Every single one of you deserves A round of applause. Because of people like you, other people can try to manage in times where they otherwise might not be able to. God bless every one of you, and I will post tomorrow with my final update. Share, Share, Share!!!!!! - Adam
We did it!!!!! In three short days, we reached a pretty insane goal of 10 grand. I almost can't believe it. This goes to show that the love and care of family, friends, and even complete strangers can provide the support a family like the Deacons need. What's more, is that a lot of people that donated, went through the same hurricane that the Deacon family did. The difference is, is that most of us know that we had it much better coming out of the storm, then they did. Looking at the photos, and just hearing about what happened to them, is truly humbling. Heck, I was even complaining that I was out of power for about four days. In the grand scheme of things, that's nothing. Life just turned from living in a comfy situation into "camping" for just a few days. But to lose what they have. That's what motivates me to give and share as much as I can with people who didn't fare as well as my family has. Most of this is why I am sending each of you a personal thank you. It may take a week or two to finally finish, but it's worth it to tell all of you how special you are and how much this actually matters. All of you that shared the story or contributed to the effort, you are remarkable. Plain and simple. Let's keep it going in bonus time, but thank you. Each and every one of you. -Adam
I can't believe it!!! We are less then 400.00 away from reaching our goal, and it only took 3 days! I cannot comprehend, honestly, how generous all of you have been with this cause. Just taking the time to share the post, and spread the story is more than enough. But a lot if you went above and beyond and really made this thing worth it. I am speechless. My heart is full, and I can only hope that this helps Chris and his family rebound a little bit quicker. Everything after this goal is bonus time. Let's really show them how much they mean, and push the envelope. I know I am no J.J. Watts, but this is really a big gain for a cause that's really important. Everyone, you all are amazing. <3 -Adam
