House destroyed by fire

In the early hours of Friday 30th March, a massive fire broke out in my house and burned everything down to ash. The fire happened around 1:15PM yesterday.

I (AJ) got a call yesterday from my mom while I was at school. She was crying on the phone and really could tell that she's shocked and afraid of what happened. I was in class when she called and had told me that our home is gone. I arrived at my house and had witnessed the distractions that the fire made. 

My brother was home by himself and acted right away, called 911 in a calm way. He was able to get out the house at the alley way and I'm thankful that he was safe. Our neighbors was able to help too, knocking on the door trying to see if anyone was trap in the house while the rest of  family members were in school and at work.The fire was so massive that it took so many fire fighters to cool the fire down. Our entire home and possessions have been burnt to pieces that's included our beds, televisions, clothes and many other basic needs.  

I'm a student @ SFIEC /graphic designer/self employed. Unfortunately, my laptop and my other hard drive was turned into ash. All the files are gone and cannot go back and restore em. 

This tragic event has moved me and made me more stronger at what I do. My mom did not deserved this at all, but seeing her crying everyday is also making me weak. She's a very strong woman and she taught me to always look back where I came from. I know she going to overcome everything with what's going on with our lives. 

Your donations will pay towards:
Clothes for my brother, moms and etc.
Basic needs.
A brand new computer for me to
work on.

I am also doing this because I want to surprise moms with a check so that she could pay the bills that we have to pay.

Dig deep and give whatever you can.

Any amount of donation will help 
thank you! I appreciate every single one of y'all.
