Markopoulos House Fire

Demetrios, Dorian, Alexander and Artemis woke up one cold January morning to the realization that their home was on fire and moments later watched it burn to the ground. Thankfully, no one was hurt but most everything they owned was destroyed in the fire. I have come to realize that the process of replacing things that we use in our daily lives that most of us take for granted is tedious and quite expensive. Clothing, kitchenware, toiletries, furniture...it all adds up. Insurance has been helpful but slow and this has been a tremendous burden for them financially and emotionally.  I am reaching out to all of you who know them and love them as much as I do to ask for your help.  I'm not sure how much they need but I'm sure it is much more than we realize. Any amount we can give will help them through this difficult time. Please share this with whomever you see fit!
