The Wootens Lost Everything





Most of us have known the Wootens for years and years. I personally have known them since before I was born. My mother was best friends with Jenny, when they were only teenagers. Through the years there have been deaths, accidents, births, and celebrations, and the Wootens have never ever changed. They have prayed, loved, reached out, and shown grace through EVERYTHING. I am setting up a Go Fund Me for them, because they mean so much, and its the least I can do in effort to help them get back on their feet.  We all know they dont care about "things", but we all need the basics. I have no idea if 55k is even enough- Im actually afraid it isnt, but its a start. Donations are AMAZING, but they also have no place to keep anything now....so, we need to get money together for a home, a rental, a space to live. 

So, This tragic story began in the early morning hours of January 25, 2018 Jenny woke up, opened an inside door of the house, and was nearly knocked back by the amount of thick rolling smoke in the house. With quick thinking, she was able to get out saving her grandson, (we all know how much Luke means to the family!!!) and husband, Kenny. Only some of their animals were able to be saved. Kenny attempted to go back into the fire, but nearly passed out from the strength of the smoke. They have lost EVERYTHING.

Those of us who know Jenny, Kenny, Tesia and Amanda, know that they are the most loving, most giving people out there. We all know how much they have gone through- for years, and how much they have still given and done for anyone around them. They now, really, really need us. They have lost all possesions. I will continue to update this campaign as we learn more about what caused the fire, and if more comes up as a result of this terrible accident.
