Help the Bauwens Family Rebuild their Home

Last night, March 4, my twin brother Mike, sister-in-law Rachael, one-year-old nephew Jack, and their cat Cookie, had their whole lives turned upside down in a few hours.

An all-hands fire started in the garage and moved through the rest of the house. Mike and Rachael were able to grab their family and a few small possessions, but almost all of the possessions From their lives together are gone.



The greatest news in the world is that everyone is unharmed and safe at my parent’s house, but their home is gone. You don’t realize what goes into a life until it’s all boarded up, and Mike, Rachael and Jack have had to start from Square One overnight.



This fund would help everyone get new clothes, diapers and things for Jack (maybe a Bluey toy or two), and some essentials to live with while they work on building a new home.

If you can, any help right now would be so so appreciated. Please message me with any questions and THANK YOU so much for the support and love we’ve all felt in such a scary time.
