Idriss's Fire Damage Fundraiser

Today, my friend of 16 years has lost everything he owns, including his pet cat. Idriss has a passion working on cars and had a garage next to his apartment. The furnace in the garage caught on fire and spread quickly throughout his complex and even destroyed his two cars.

I met Idriss in 8th grade and throughout our friendship he has worked for everything he has. He earned a degree and found a job he loves as much as his hobby. There are very few people I have ever met with his work ethic and to see someone who got so far and have it all taken away makes me sick to my stomach.

I know he will find a way to get on his feet like he always does, but any little bit helps.
