Picking up the pieces

On March 29, 2018, my family experienced a fire in our home. Unexpectedly, we had to evacuate the building and make sure everyone was out before the fire had began to spread. Fortunately, everyone in the house was able to make it out safely. My grandma was sent to the hospital for having a difficult time breathing.

Many of our belongings are no longer available to us. We are a huge family of 11. This family consists of my Grandmother, Mother, 7 brothers and 1 sister. We are doing everything in our power to provide for one another during these difficult times. Many of the kids are still minors, and can't afford to help financially. 

We humbly ask for the support of our family, friends, and other caring humans during this difficult time. Any donation, share, or word of mouth about the situation is helpful. The money that is donated will be used to cover the costs for travel (to get the kids to school from where we have been temporarily relocated), clothing, and potential payment on a new apartment. 

We give you all many many thanks and internet hugs. We appreciate all the support and sending our love to you all. 

Thank you in advance <3
