Stinson Family House Fire

On Wednesday July 19th, we had a very devastating house fire. We are completely shocked and heartbroken. The fire fighters responded quickly but the fire also spread very quickly. If things weren't damaged by fire, they were damaged by water and smoke. It is about an 80% loss. The fire marshal believes this to be started by an electrical fire that was maybe caused by a faulty outdoor plug. Thank goodness we are all ok but we are basically going to be starting over at this point. We are currently staying at a hotel and that in itself is getting costly. We basically left with the clothes on our backs and that is it. So we really could use help getting back on our feet. If you can't donate please just keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we get through this very difficult time. Thank you so very much ❤️❤️

A little about us...We are a family of 7. My husband Andrew and I have 5 children. Senja is the oldest, then Andy, Ethan, Madeline and Jack. We also have 2 dogs and 3 cats. Being displaced with a large family and many pets has not been easy :(.

I'm adding that all money raised in this campaign will go to our family directly. All your generous donations will help us cover housing costs, food costs, clothing costs and anything else needed to get us through these first difficult weeks/months. Again thank you all so very much!!

Also I wanted to add that the name Crecelius is my maiden name. My married name is Emilie Stinson. Just so there wasn't any confusion there.
