Give our friends a new beginning

There are only a handful of people out there who would give the clothes off their back to help a friend but Daria and Adam are those people. I am overwhelmed with the amount of times they touched my life personally but I will just give two examples. When Gabriel was 10 weeks old and my twins were newborns, Daria brought Gabe to Barrie to watch the “triplets” so I could sleep. Super mom even managed to bring dinner. Another time, Jay was admiring a glass set of Adams and he wouldn’t let us leave without taking it home because Jay loved it more than he did.

All of us who know Daria, Adam and their beautiful son Gabriel, have many examples that we could share about their unwavering generosity and love for their friends. We now have the opportunity to show them the same love and kindness.

On Saturday night, their world changed when they received a phone call from a neighbour, informing them that there was a fire at their home. Their dream house, that they bought only 2 short years ago, was gone. They lost everything they own. Our friends don’t know what the future holds or how to begin rebuilding their life. I would do anything to help them start over, as I know many others would. Money certainly won’t bring back the life they had, but it will help them start ‘plan B’. Many of you have helped by offering hand-me-downs for Gabe, games and toys. Some who don’t have children have been asking how to contribute. The money donated here will help them restock their pantry when they get a new home, buy new clothes for themselves, toiletries, whatever else they need to replace immediately.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
