Aid Earthquake Victims Gomez Family

I am Jackson Rempel a Proud Canadian, currently residing in Mexico City with my wife and two young children aged 5 and 7.  On September 19th at 1:14 PM a 7.1 Magnitude Earthquate hit Central Mexico, killing hundreds and leaving thousands injured and homeless in Mexico CIty and the surrounding states.  As of Sep 24 there are still adults and children trapped under crubled buildings while rescue crews franticly try to save them before it is too late. The resiliance of the Mexican people has been unbelievable, there are so many volunteers that people are actually being turned away - it is incredible to be here and witness the kindness & generosity in the face of such a disaster.   The Gomez Rodriguez  family have two children age 4 and 6 and who attend school with my children.  Their home crumbled in the quake, all of their belonings, pictures, memories, furniture, their vehicle, clothing, and everything they need to live has been destroyed.  The picture below shows their home right after the quake, moments after the picture was taken it crumbled into nothing.  The money raised by this fund will be deposited to my bank account, I will withdraw it and give it directly to this family, to aid them in rebuilding their lives and provide life essentials to their kids.  This way they can spend it at their discretion on clothing, food, shelter and medications as needed. Right now all they have the clothes on their back, and they will be very grateful for any help you can give. Let's come together and support this family, and others, in getting their lives back to normal, and show them some true Canadian generosity!  Thank you very much!
