Help a family that lost everything.


The recent storms in Illinois have had life changing impacts on many people. My sister Nichole Barkus, her boyfriend A.j Dorgan and my niece have lost everything in the floods. Brittany square apartments in Grayslake Illinois currently sit under about 6 feet of water! These floods have left many families with nothing, everything from food, clothes and cars are damaged beyond repair.
Sunday was a great day for my sister and A.j, they found out some great news, they are bringing another life into this world! Everything was great until the storm hit.
I am looking to raise money to help my sister's family get back on their feet. They are currently homeless and staying with family, they will not be able to go home any time soon and will be forced to find a new place to live. This requires money, something they have very little of. The apartment complex is basically telling them that they are on their own and that they will not cover any damages or even put them up in a hotel. Anything helps! If you can not help with money we absolutly understand, we are also accepting donations for things like food, clothing and gift cards or even a simple share of this campaign.
Thank you so much for your help.
