My father was treated at the hospital for minor burns but other than that, I am so grateful that they are alive. Our pets, 2 cats and a bird, were not able to be saved and unfortunately passed away.
The picture below shows the master bedroom. As you can see, my parents lost absolutely everything. Every shirt, every shoe, every Q-tip, everything. While insurance covers the cost of the house being gutted and rebuilt, my parents have to replace their immediate needs out of pocket.
I have come up with an estimate for toiletries, winter coats, warm clothes, and clothes for work. I want to help them so they can focus on rebuilding their lives but I can’t help them on my own. If you would like to donate (any amount!), I have set up a Gofundme below. I plan to surprise my parents with all of the donations on Christmas.
Thank you for all of the kind words and gestures you all have given me so far. Happy holidays and much, much love from me.
