Help Jon, Chris, and Pete get back on their feet!!

UPDATE 2::

Thank you once again to all the donors so far and everyone who has reached out and donated clothing, household items, time, effort, showed up to our fundraiser, and more.  We are overwhelmed with the response and cannot even begin to thank everyone enough.  An update on the pets; at this time we have confirmed that they unfortunately did not make it. We are beyond devastated, and while no amount of anything can bring them back, seeing the outpouring of love and support from everyone has really helped the guys try and keep their chins up as best they can.

Thank you all again for being so generous during the holiday season.  So overjoyed to see all the amazing people out there.  Thank you!!!!

UPDATE::

WOW. Thank you thank you thank you!!! The outpouring of love and support we got yesterday was unimaginable. Thank you to everyone who has donated, shared, spread the word.  You guys are amazing and we are so unbelievably touched by your generosity at this time. Since yesterday I have picked up and dropped off tons of clothing, and I now have a donation center set up at Brenna's Cafe (1236 S. 8th street) for the clothing.  We are GOOD on the 38/xl clothing, but are still IN NEED of 34/L/10.5-11 shoe donations. 

 A lot of you have been asking about the pets as well.  I have been in contact with Red Paw rescue and due to the fact that the pets were inside during the explosion, they are not too positive about the outcome.  We still have not found them, but I will keep updating the page as we know more.  

Driving by the site yesterday was harrowing, total devastation, and these guys need us now more than ever.  There is absolutely nothing left. Please continue to share share share this and get the word out!! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart, I had no idea this campaign would be as successful as this, and it warms my heart that we are able to help these guys out during this time!! #PHILLYSTRONG!!!

Hi Everyone,

I'm sure a lot of you heard about the gas explosion on 8th street in Philly yesterday.  Unfortunately some of our best friends were involved in it, and while it's still early on, it seems as though they've lost almost everything.  I am asking for any and all help from everyone as these are two of the nicest guys around and they could really use our help right now.  Their house was adjacent to the house where the explosion took place, and their pets were home at the time.  We are currently still looking for both the dog and the cat. Links to what happened are below, and I will be updating this page as we get more information.  

They would never ask for a dime from anyone, which is why I'm doing it for them! Please help me in joining together to help out three of the greatest guys I've ever met during the holiday season.  Anything you can contribute helps, even if it's only $5! In addition to this, I will be driving around the Philadelphia area today picking up clothing that people have so generously put aside for me to drop to the guys.  If you have anything at all, text me and I will come get it! We are in need of size Large and XL tops, and 34 and 38 pants. 

Thank you in advance for your thoughts, prayers, and donations! And a HUGE thank you to everyone who has already donated directly before this campaign!!
