Liddell Family House Fire Expenses

Wednesday December 13th, at 9:45 AM the family home of Marty Liddell and her sons AJ and Shawn burnt to the ground. While the cause is still unknown, they lost all of their belongings as well as their two beloved family dogs, Scout and Jeter. 

While there is nothing that can make up for the loss of the lives of Scout, and Jeter, as well as the many objects holding sentimental value, we are trying to raise money to help the entire Liddell family get back on their feet faster. Money donated would go towards things that are not covered by insurance, such as furniture, clothing and other necessities. Our goal is to raise around $3,000, which would help to cover these expenses. 

We greatly appreciate any and all donatations, but we also understand that not everyone is able to donate money. We also want to ask that you keep the Liddell family in your thoughts and prayers as they recover from this tremendous loss. We would like to thank everyone in advance for your contributions and positive thoughts for Marty, AJ, and Shawn.

P.S. My name is Makenzie Leichsenring, I’m from Iowa as well and Aj’s girlfriend. 100% of the money will be directly put into Marty’s bank account so they can use it for anything they need. Feel free to contact me with any other questions. Thank you so much for your donations! The Liddell family is more than thankful for your contributions.
