Help the Lesiuks: lost their home to the #s fire

Hey friends and family. I'm reaching out and asking for support for my brother,  Abe Lesiuk, and his two sons Issac and Mikey.


He recently lost his house, garage and property to the numbers fire in Gardnerville, Nevada. Unfortunately, my brother literally lost everything but what was in his car and the picture of our Grandma that the fire fighters grabbed off the wall. He has lived in Nevada his whole life and dreamed of owning property off the grid where he could create a paradise for others to come and enjoy as well. He was well on his way to seeing that become a reality until the numbers fire flew through his property.

He is kind, generous and a thoughtful man who needs our help. He is now looking at a long process to finalize his insurance claim and wait for a payout. In the mean time he has to try and replace what he can so he can survive day to day. I'm asking for donations for him for food, clothing, saving for an apartment, a bed, furniture, kitchen items, blankets, and all the other things that come along with starting over after you have lost everything. 

I know that times are so difficult right now for everyone with the pandemic and the economic struggles that has caused. However, if you have something to spare to help this guy out we would really appreciate it.

Abe is working really hard to get on his feet so he can get back to parenting his sons and having a safe place for them to come stay with him. Abe also lost everything his children had at his house, clothing, toys, etc. 

As his sister, I am doing everything I can for him but I live six hundred miles away and my ability to help is limited but I can do this. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions. I'm happy to answer what I can while still protecting Abe and the boys' privacy.
