House Fire Recovery (Family of 4)

I have created this on behalf of a family near and dear to my heart. Before I share anything else - NO life was harmed or lost!

A family of 4 with 3 dogs has experienced/is experiencing unexpected hardship and displacement due to a fire that has fully destroyed their home due to both damages directly from the fire and also the smoke and water damage. The damage reached the attic where the additional oxygen (due to the rafters in the attic) caused the fire to burn into the roof/through the roof. 

Appliances melted (refrigerator, washer, dryer, and microwave), all furniture, mattresses, and home goods have been destroyed. The only things salvageable, through ongoing effort and laundering, are the family's clothing that took on significant smoke damage and soot. 

I would love to feel like what I can personally afford to donate could make a dent in the monstrosity of what it would require in rebuilding their home and life outside of what insurance will cover. I know that I cannot come close to helping in the way I would like to. I know we are all in uncertain times and have our own obligations to take care of. That said; I am seeking kindness, generosity, and assistance from anyone willing to help a humble, wonderful, amazing family in their time of need. ANY dollar amount will be and is deeply appreciated. 

If you have other ways you would like to offer help then please do not hesitate to contact me. You never know the ways in which the smallest gestures would be deeply appreciated and needed.   <3
