Their belongings were destroyed when the movers they had hired experienced an accident, the end result being that most of what was being transported was destroyed and what little that was salvaged from the wreckage was in too poor of a condition for them to use. You can read about the accident in this report from a Fort Wayne television station: http://wane.com/2014/08/24/two-injured-after-rental-truck-flips-on-i-69/
Derek, Kristen and their baby Elijah are literally starting from scratch. There will hopefully be some relief headed their way once the insurance companies sort out who was at fault for what and how much they are entitled to receive. While that will be a start to help them rebuild their lives and make new memories in their new home, it doesn't do them much good over the short run, nor will it replace the sentimental value of the items they lost.
Please consider donating to help them rebuild their lives. They haven't asked for this help - but their friends want to show them that we care about them and want to help, we hope you'll feel the same way too!
