Helping mom start over

My mother's house went up in flames luckily no one was injured or hurt in the fire. We are extremely greatful everyone is safe and while that is priceless trying to start over is not. My mother is an amazing person and a beacon of strength! She is a dedicated teacher who has a passion for helping children with disabilities, and had even won teacher of the year. She sees someone in need and does everything she can to help. She spent many years caring for my father when he became disabled and was unable to care for himself. She is still struggling with his death and October is an extremely difficult month considering that this month will be the 2 year anniversary of his death. She is raising my two nieces on her own and helping to care for her ailing mother.  Simple words do not even begin to be able to describe how kind, compassionate, and amazing she is. My mother is my hero and I'm praying we all can be hers. Anything you can do to help her rebuild her life and show her how many people there are that appreciate the work she is doing as a teacher or to show her she is loved and not forgotten would be greatly appreciated. I thank anyone who can help in anyway even if all you have too offer are prayers and kind words. All donations will be given to my mother to help her get back on her feet. Your donations will help her to start over with finding new housing, buying clothes, beds, food, and other necessities that were lost in the fire.
Even if we don't reach the goal of 15,000 anything helps
