Kimberlee Hawkins Family House Fire

As my sister Kimberlee Hawkins was in the shower today, her son started banging on the door while screaming that the house was on fire. She wrapped herself in a towel and opened the door to see the kid’s bedroom engulfed in flames. Without hesitation, she grabbed her two young boys, Bryce & Brentlee, and ran them to safety outside. 

It was there, standing in the cold, wrapped only in a towel - that she watched her family’s home and all of their possession be consumed by fire. Thankfully, Kimberlee, her two boys, and her fiancé Joshua are all safe - but they have lost everything.

No clothes. No food. No toys. No Cell Phone.

This is happening less than a year after Joshua was involved in a freak accident, being ran over by heavy machinery and almost losing his life.  The accident left him unable to work for an extended period of time and put them in a horrible financial position. 

My sister has never been the type of person to ask for help, or to accept charity, but they have been struggling since the accident. And now, having lost all of thier possessions today, she needs help more than ever.  

As I am posting this, I am told that she has contacted the Red Cross, and that a neighbor gave her some clothes to wear so she at least has more than a towel. 

I am asking for anyone who reads this to help my sister. Even if it’s just a $1. I know a lot of people, and that could be a lot of dollars. If you can’t afford to help, then please just share this post.

As this just happened today, I am hopeful to raise $2,000 as quickly as possible so they have money for food, clothes, personal hygiene items, and gas to get to work, take the kids to school, etc. 

Thank you for your help.
