Walters Family Hurricane Sandy Relief

Hi everyone! I am trying to raise money to help my brother Bill Walters rebuild his home after Hurricane Sandy has made it uninhabitable. He lives on the water in Babylon with his wife Sarah and his two children Will (2 years old) and Brody ( 9 months old). They are unable to live at their home since there are massive oil(3 inches thick) spills and lots of flood damage (just over 4 feet). The town has told them that it is their responsibility to dig up their lawn and remove all the oil themselves before they could ever live there again (even though its not their oil). Aside from that, they have to reconstruct their house in order to make it safe to live in. This process will take months or years to finish and insurance will only cover a small portion. They currently live at Sarah's sisters house in Bayshore and work around the clock to care of their children, make a living, and try and rebuild their home. He is an FDNY fireman and works for the Incident Management Team, so he has been stationed in Brooklyn to help families there even though he is the one who needs all the help he can get. I am hoping to raise enough money to ease this burden and provide them with a Christmas they will never forget.


Since gofundme.com charges a 5% fee, I will donate 5% of whatever is raised in order to insure 100% of donations go directly to them. These donations will go directly to helping them rebuild the home as well as towards supplies for their children.
