Help Alex & Josh Rebuild

Early Wednesday morning, Alex McLennan and Josh Mercil's apartment building set on fire, leading to a three alarm fire in South Minneapolis. They lost everything, including their three amazing, beloved cats, Vito, Oscar, and Ziggy. Their loss is unimaginable.

They are lucky to have support from loved ones, and the Red Cross stepped in to provide immediate overnight support, but they face a lot of costs to get back on their feet to find a home resembling the one they had.

If you've been lucky enough to know Alex and/or Josh, then you know they are people who make the lives of the people they know better. Please help them by giving here.
