on behalf of Elizabeth Dimond
 NEW YORK, NY
My dear friend Elizabeth Dimond's apartment (125 Second Ave) was part of the devastating East Village blaze that occurred on March 26th. The apartment she's lived in for over 6 years was damaged by the fire and is uninhabitable. She lost everything. She was supposed to be moving to a new apartment in the same neighborhood just four days after this tragic event occurred.

Elizabeth had just left her apartment 30 minutes prior to the terrible explosion. We are all so happy that she wasn't home when it took place!

That being said, imagine leaving the house in the morning not knowing that everything you have on your person that day is all you will have to rebuild your life. Elizabeth did not have renters insurance and is in need of financial assistance. Lost photos and mementoes are irreplaceable, but we ask your support to help her purchase everyday essentials, most importantly a bed to sleep in, clothing, toiletries and food.

Those who know Elizabeth know she can always make us laugh and is a joy to be around. Please consider making a donation to help her in this tragic time of need. We appreciate your support!

UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who's donated! The goal was increased after receiving news that everything in her apartment was destroyed.

You are very welcome. I can't believe how inconsiderate some people can be. I know the feeling of losing everything from a fire and losing all the little special things that are irreplaceable. It is one of the worse feelings in the world to lose all those memories. Money can't buy any of that back :( . That girl obviously never experienced anything like that in her life because if she did she would of just made a donation and added a few kind words. I wish I could of gave you more. I hope you can get back most of the stuff you lost and this can be something of a fresh start for you. Sometimes we can't see the rainbow with all the clouds in the way but in time the rainbow shines brightly through and we see the reason the clouds had to come through in the first place. I truly believe everything happens for a reason and I'm just so thankful (even though I don't know you personally, when I saw this on the news I silently prayed that nobody was inside at the time) that you were not there when the explosion happened. Thank God you left when you did . That means your life has a ton of meaning and there is a higher purpose for you in life. I hope that higher purpose shines it's light on you and you get to grab that rainbow in the end :) Best wishes for the road ahead xo

Why on earth would you even ask such a question? Beyond rude! Not everyone has a perfect little life and all the perfect little things that make it so damn perfect! Go donate or stay quiet!
