Christmas Relief

I am writing this from the airport in Seoul, South Korea because I had to cut my travels short and book an emregency flight home. Christmas morning with my brother, his wife and their 2 kids in Northern Thailand turned into a fight for our lives as we awoke to the roaring sound of the house burning down. We all made it out alive but they lost everthing they own. The homeowner has insurance but only for the house itself. Because of how things work in Thailand, my brother and his wife are being held responsible for the property inside the house even though is was ruled to be an "electrical accident". They have lived in northern Thailand for 2 1/2 years teaching children and coaching youth basketball because that is the kind of wonderful, caring people that they are. They don't make a lot of money. They don't do what they do for the money. They do it because they love kids and they believe that what they are doing makes a difference in the lives of others. And it does. But right now they need someone to make a difference in their lives. Please help me get this family back on their feet and put some hope back in their hearts.
