Carissa, Lauren and Rashieda's House Fire Fund

Hello all, 

My name is Lauren and I live in Petworth DC. On July 4th, I came home to find my house on fire.  I had time to get my cat, grab my phone and run out of the house.  The house was ablaze and has now been condemned and unable for re-entry, so everything has been lost.  Rashieda has two dogs that were found unconscious and have been taken to a local emergency veterinary for treatment. 

Carissa, Rashieda and myself have lost everything but the clothes on our backs and our pets.  Any donations would be greatly appreciated to help us get back on our feet and provide ourselves with the daily necessities.

Thank you and bless your soul!
