Early morning 10/9 Genevieve & Juan were jarred awake by the fire department. They escaped with only the clothes on their backs, saving their two dogs, cat and one car.
Everything is gone. The neighborhood. The house.
There was simply no time. Not to grab one bag, or family photos, albums, clothing. Nothing.
I'm Alexa Fleur, Genevieve's cousin from Long Beach. I'm starting this campaign so family, friends and loved one's can give back to Genevieve and Juan.
This catastrophic fire has wiped out entire neighborhoods and places of work. This money will be used to replenish some of the basics lost in the fire and help them transition into new housing.
Thank you for giving. The entire family is lifted by your thoughts and prayers. Any donation, no matter how small will be deeply appreciated.
P.S. Some of you have been asking how GoFundMe works. It allows people like me (cousin) to help family in need (Genevieve and Juan) by providing the tools to create a fundraising campaign. GoFundMe verifies Genevieve's identity, she creates a login and connects this campaign directly to her bank account. Its that easy! The fundraiser will go for 30-days. Please share!!
