York Rebuild!!

I am raising money to help my cousin, Rhonda York, and her family rebuild after a devastating fire has destroyed everything.  It is a tragic story that begins with the family out of town enjoying a family vacation in Florida.  As they are approaching their last day at the beach, they receive a shocking call that their house caught on fire.  Once they received the photos from relatives it became clear they had lost everything as they do not have homeowners insurance.  In addition to losing their home, all appliances, furniture, linens, toiletries, TV’s, computers, blinds/curtains, kitchen items, Christmas / Holiday items, clothes - her husband Joey's truck was also engulfed in the fire. 

Rhonda and Joey are terrific parents who currently have two children and a 9 month old granddaughter living with them.  To add to all the necessary items they will need to begin a rebuild, they will also need clothes for their children, and of course Graycee.  They are also in need of toys and all the necessities that come with babies.

My heart aches for my family as this is such a devastating and overwhelming chapter in their lives.  I know the material items can, and will, be replaced with hopefully the help of giving family and friends.  Rhonda and Joey hurt in realizing all the memorabilia items that unfortunately can never be replaced.

I am setting the initial goal at just $5,000, but hope all friends and family dig deep into their hearts and donate way more than the goal!!!  I know for one, I plan to skip a few dinners/lunches out this month and will give the York family all my extra frivolous spending for the next few months.  Please help the York family rebuild!
