Joe and Jess Fire Recovery

My dear friends and newlyweds, Joe McGee and Jess Rinker, tragically lost everything on August 13th from a devastating fire of their home in Frenchtown, NJ, when a large tow truck barreled through the building next to theirs, blew up the propane tanks, and set everything ablaze.

They are grateful to be alive but need our help starting over. After getting married in Nevada on August 5th and just returning home, they were to have a joyous wedding celebration in Frenchtown with friends and family. Joe and Jess need our help to rebuild their lives that have just begun together as husband and wife.

Joe and Jess are both children's book authors who have several picture books, chapter books, and novels out and coming out between them. Joe is the author of the hilarious picture book series, Peanut Butter & Brains. 

This fund would help them pay for housing, clothes, food and any other necessities. Most of all, it would grant peace of mind so that they can rebuild, get back to writing amazing stories to share with the world, and cherish their new life together.

Thank you for taking the time to read, distribute and contribute.  Joe and Jess are amazing people with so many talents and big hearts and are loved by many.

Our hearts are with them.
