on behalf of Carlos Jurado
 BOTHELL, WA
Two year old Ethan was abducted by his father, taken from his mother, grandfather and grandmother today.  Father set fire to their home, beat up grandpa and child was forcibly taken from grandma while mom was at work. Thankfully, thanks to an Amber Alert, Ethan has been returned safely to his mom and grandparents but their home and everything inside it is a total loss and unfortunately the father is still at large. We want to help them get back on their feet after a horrible life event. Please help if you can.

 My name is Cheryl Smith. I started this Go Fund Me Campaigne to help my friends, Carlos and Maria, their daughter, Cynthia and grandson, Ethan rebuild a new home or find a new home. My son in law, Carlos is the only son of Carlos and Maria.  He is with his family in Las Cruces now trying to help them figure out what is next. I live in Bothell, WA and this campaign is my way of helping out from far away. The donations made will go directly to Carlos and Maria via a bank transfer so they can use it to make themselves a home again.

Every donation is so appreciated, we can't thank you enough. At this time Carlos, Maria, Cynthia and Ethan are basically living out of their car so donations of household items are difficult for them to take in. Money and gift cards are the best options for them right now, until they have a place to store items they are givin. Thank you all so much, if you would still like to donate clothing or household items, please post in the comments and we will contact you with arrangements of where it can be sent.

As many of you know Ethan is safely back with his mother and grandparents. Unfortunately their home was completely destroyed by the fire. The money you all send will help them rebuild their lives. The prayers will help them heal emotionally. Thank you all for any help.

Sadly the donations have stopped and you have been so generous. It looks like it's up to us to give a bit more. Can we give once again just a $5 or $10 to get this family back in a warm home of their own?
