Donkersgoed Family Fire

$21,930 of $75,000 goal

Raised by 124 people in 2 months
Created January 8, 2019
One of the most amazing families we know, the Donkersgoed Family recently lost their home and possessions in a devastating fire on Jan 7th in the Ste Anne, MB.

Though their family is safe, the loss for them is enormous. Together Sonja and Ryan spent the last 4 years building their home from the ground up, an environmentally green building that they poured their savings, energies and love into. Tragically there is no insurance to cover the fire. 

With three of the sweetest children, and one more on the way in March - this wonderful family is now needing to take the first difficult steps in rebuilding their lives.  Any finances raised will go a long way to making it easier for them to get back on their feet, please consider helping them in this overwhelming time.

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the Donkersgoed/Rosenberg family, we want to thank you all so much for your outpouring of love during this challenging time in their lives. Thank you for the many messages and for your patience as we, a small team of friends sort out ways to help them from afar.

At this time they are thankful to have living accommodations with family, as they piece their lives back together. Donations of clothing and toys have poured in in such numbers that they are still keeping very busy sorting and matching sizes to each of the family members' needs.

Recently, there was an offer of a place to store donated household items. Thanks to this we have set up a special email account for those that wish to donate additional items to their future home. As this is already an overwhelming time, we are attempting to reduce further stress by streamlining the donation process and avoiding duplicate donations. **It would help us immensely if you could send a detailed list of items that you may have to offer, so we can share a list with the family to look over/approve before accepting possible duplicates.** We will get back to you about which items are helpful at this time; thank you in advance for your patience as we sort through the emails and support extended!

Please note: At the moment there is no need for further mattress, toys or clothing donations. Simple, basic household items are welcome, while
good quality, second-hand items are very appreciated.

The family is stunned by the help and generosity that has flooded them and wishes to express their heartfelt thanks, they (and we) so appreciate the community kindness that been felt from all corners of Canada. We will continue to make updates, as needs arise over the next weeks and months.

Any specific information or donations can be emailed to:

Thank you again sweet friends,

Lydia Buxton & MaryLynn Podiluk
