Help Tas & Yanni Back on Their Feet

All,

I'll let a direct quote from Tasos give you a description of what you're here for.

"Uhhhh my house is on fire.
All my stuff is gone
What a day"

With that understatement of the year out of the way, we're seriously here to help Tasos and Yanni get back onto their feet after a scary and devastating apartment fire this afternoon. Most importantly, both Tasos and Yanni were thankfully unharmed during the fire. Not only that, but Yanni likely saved the livlihood of multiple people in the complex as he quickly alerted each apartment of the fire on his way out. If that doesn't deserve free beer for life, I don't know what does.

As you can probably imagine, losing everything in a fire is a physically, emotionally, and financially scary event. Take a second and look around your apartment or house and try to imagine losing every article of clothing, every family photo, piece of jewelry, electronic, whatever you have around. While only time will help heal the wounds caused from losing the more sentimental belongings, financial support can seriously help these two get through this stressful time.

Nothing needs to be said about how good of friends and family members Yanni and Tasos are. These two have always been there for us (albeit with an unrelenting sense of humor) and it's time for us to be there for them.

We set the goal at $10,000 but don't see that as a limit. It will likely cost even more to repurchase the countless things they lost. Seriously anything here will help these two out. Buy one or two less drinks at the bar this weekend or pack lunches this week instead of going out and give the difference. Hell, even $5 can get these guys some tall-boys at the gas station because Lord knows they need it.

If you prefer to donate clothes, kitchen supplies, furniture, or anything else they'll need to get back onto their feet, please contact us and we'll make it work.

Thanks,
Friends of the Stavropoulous Brothers
