Meredith and Johnny housefire

As some of you may now know , Meredith and I's house set fire on Saturday 3rd late at night. Somehow our couch set fire and took out approximately 75% of what we own. Thankfully no one was home or injured. It was awful, we have been able to salvage most of our clothes but the majority of everything else is gone. I believe if you are reading these neither Meredith or I have ever been the kind of people to ask for any kind of handouts and our very independent. Some of friends have offered help, or benefits, or beer blast and not that we wouldnt be appreciative we have just been really private and just trying to heal. We figured by doing this you can donate if you choose, or not. We are blessed to have a nice tight inner circle of friends and family so we have a places to stay and food in our bellies for now, but have asked for some help with finding a permanent spot of our own. Any assistance would be appreciated and we have decided when or if we get a settlement from the couch we will throw a big party for all of you. Thank you so much even for reading. Its been a difficult week
