Hi, my name is Bill and I am 78 years old. On October 31, 2021 at 4:20am, I experienced a devastating fire in my trailer home. I was awakened by seeing smoke coming towards me and was forced to run outside with no shoes and stay in my car until the fire erupted and destroyed all of my belongings after 32 years of living there. Upon the fire department arrival, they explained if I hadn't left within 30 seconds of the smoke being there, I would've experienced an immediate death as the smoke was considered explosive and would have ruptured my lungs. I am so thankful for making it out and believe my guardian angel pushed me to leave when I wasn't sure of what was going on while I am always in a deep sleep at that time. I am currently staying at a hotel and am looking to buy a new trailer home to get back on track. A good used trailer costs about $25,000, and the remainder of the donation amount will help me to furnish my new place and make it into a home that it once was.
