Herman Needs Your Help

A three alarm fire destroyed my father and grandfather's apartment building early in the morning on July 13th. My 71 year old grandfather attempted to leave through the front door but was met with flames and thick smoke, so he decided to jump out of the second story window to save his life. He suffered a broken leg, back fracture, and second degree burns to his forearm. These two have lost everything, and unfortunately did not have renters insurance. The Red Cross assisted with funds for housing but it's not more than a couple days worth. We are looking for help to replace neccessities and a new place to call home, especially while my grandfather is recovering from his injuries. Any amount donated is sincerely appreciated. Thank you!

Lastly, a news helicopter happened to be in the area and managed to capture my grandfather jumping. I'm so thankful he is okay. (Link to video below.)
