Benzinger St Fire, Conti Family

My name is Amber Conti, I'm from Lovejoy in Buffalo, New York. My family just lost my 7 year old brother Anthony to a house fire, and we are suffering.  This boy is now an angel. Even though no amount of money can buy back my little man's life, we lost an estimated $275000 (as told by channel 4 news), that is including the house and all clothes/ furniture/etc needed for a family of 8. Any donations are greatly needed and appreciated. Thank you all so much. *Due to negativity I'd like to add that 1 million dollars was never a real goal. I was endlessly surprised and grateful to see that it hit $500 dollars, I never thought any of this was possible. I assumed that people would understand that 1 million was unrealistic and not really the amount we're looking for. I had no idea how much to put as an amount, and we're extremely grateful and surprised about every single dollar being donated.  It feels like a miracle. When I first shared this on facebook, I made sure to tell people not to donate more then they are comfortable with, and I still mean that. We need the money to get back on our feet, as we lost the home and there was no insurance. Money will go to finding a new home,  because there are so many wonderful donations in other forms. That is our biggest priority right now, in terms of items. My Aunt Debbie Conti is going to be the "beneficiary" because we are entrusting her to set up an account that we will deposit money into for our future home. http://wivb.com/2018/01/29/breaking-3-alarm-fire-tears-through-lovejoy-home/
