Family in need

On May 24th my family’s home caught on fire and we lost everything. Everything.
We are a big family, from a small town in Central Illinois, and this the house we have all grown up in.
We are beyond devastated. We have lost every belonging, every memory, every keepsake. Although we have lost so much we are staying strong and trying to push through.

My mother and 4 younger siblings were not able to save anything.

I am starting this Go Fund Me to help with all basic necessities and build up from there.
We will be using any donations to purchase clothes, shoes, toiletries, house furniture, etc.
We are so grateful for any donations, anything and everything helps. Thank you so much!
