Mothers Day Fire Restoration

The morning of March 26th a fire occurred at my family's house. The fire demolished the Master bedroom, and its contents. Leaving my mother without most of her belongings. The only ones in the house Monday morning were my three sisters, Gracie (16 y/o), Melanie (13 y/o) and Alexa (7 y/o). They were at the house while my mother and I were working. Gracie woke up and noticed a strange smell coming into her bedroom. She yelled across the house asking if anyone else could smell it. Melanie became aware of the smell, and decided to check the kitchen to investigate. Before she made it into the kitchen she saw our moms bedroom on her right and screamed "FIRE!". The fire was taller than Melanie who is 5ft tall. The whole house became over heated. Alexa was outside playing in the yard safely while this was happening. Gracie instinctively gathered Melanie, and yelled for the dogs to quickly follow her. They exited the house immediately and called 9-1-1 outisde, where they met Alexa. Everyone was gathered together safely. They proceeded to dial my mother and she drove to the house immediately. My sisters have never been in this situation and I am so proud they did the right thing and managed to stay safe! 
It took an average of 2 minutes for the firetrucks and police to arrive. They quickly responded to the fire and managed to put it out quickly. Everyone was safe! They are investigating the source of the fire. So far they believe it was a power chord. I recommend everyone leave their electronic devices and chords unplugged when they are not in use.

I am opening this GoFundMe account so I can help my mother receive her necessities as soon as possible. She has worked so hard as a mother and deserves the best.  Hopefully we can get everything replaced before Mothers Day!! I created an excel spread sheet with each necessity she lost totaling it up to and average of $3000. Although this is only for her belongings, there will be a lot more expenses to be catered to. If you would like to be a helping hand we would gladly appreciate it. 
I hope everyone stays safe, and takes precautions at their house. God bless you all.
