Help The Patterson/ Roberts Family

Christmas morning is supposed to be a time relaxing with your loved ones, watching the new snow settle on the ground and not having a worry in the world. On December 25th 2017 at 9am, as the the wood burning stove was keeping the house warm after a christmas eve snowfall, the family noticed some embers coming from the ceiling surrounding the chimney. They had enough time to grab their pets and some beloved family possesions before they could get out, and for the next 6 hours watched their beautiful family home of decades burn to the ground. Everything was lost. As of yesterday, the family has been staying in a motel with their 2 cats and 2 dogs, but have no idea as to what they will do in the near future. All of their food, personal belongings, and clothes have been destroyed and they have no idea how they are going to start to put their lives back together. They also have a small hobby farm of chickens and llamas, and although untouched by the fire, has no access to running water or electricity as the power to the property has been shut off for safety reasons.  The funds that I am asking for are going to help the family with the day to day nessecities that they need. Any donations to help with the farm would be greatly appreciated, for example a pump for water that can function without electricity / gas powered generator. There are many friends and family that want to help and don't know how, and the funds raised here will go directly to the family in their time of need.
