Help John Rebuild Post-Fire

On Saturday at 1:00 am my brother, John, lost everything in a fire that around 168 firefighters responded to. His NYC apartment was engulfed in flames. We are thankful he is alive. He walked away with only the clothes on his back. He did not have Renter's Insurance and the reality of being displaced in NYC and having to rebuild every aspect of his life is very overwhelming. 

I am starting this GoFundMe to help my brother begin to rebuild his life. Any and all donations will help as he looks to find a new home and replace what he can. There is no amount too small. Thank you in advance for your kindness, support, and generosity!
