Florence Displaces Family of 5

Hey Friends!  Thanks so much for taking the time to visit and read about this fundraiser that I am setting up for my brother and his family.

He and his family (Fiance and 3 school-aged children) live in Wilmington, NC.  As you probably know that area has been hit super hard by Hurricane Florence and it has created quite a financial hardship for their family. (Info on the Hurricane) 

They were smart enough to take heed to the warnings and vacate the area, so thankfully they are safe, but unfortunately the economics of staying safe and then recovering are costly.

They have been displaced since 9/11 and they are still unable to get back home due to flooded roads and no electricity where they live. Their jobs/schools/daycare are all closed until further notice and while they are hoping to be able to get back this weekend (still unsure if it's even possible), once they are  home and back to work it will still be at least 2 weeks before they will be paid.  There are not too many families that I know that can afford to go without pay for 4 weeks, so that is why I'm setting up this fundraiser.

My hope is to raise enough money to help them stay on top of their bills (rent and utilities) during this tough time so that they are able to quickly recover from these unfortunate circumstances.  

Anything you can give is greatly appreciated and if you aren't able to give, sharing is great too. 

Thanks again for taking the time read!
