Over the course of the last few months, a lot of misfortune has hit our family, specifically my Aunt and Uncle. They became pregnant with their first baby (my cousin) almost 9 months ago now. With the baby on the way in just another week, their life has been flipped upside down. My Aunt quit her job quite a while ago to act as a "Stay at home mom" to be the best Mom she could be to her new baby boy.
However, just a couple weeks ago, my Uncle was layed off at his new job as a nurse, which was their only source of income. Fast forward to today, (Christmas Morning) I woke up to the saddening news that overnight their entire house has been burned down.
My Aunt and Uncle are in disbelief as is expected. With a child due on January 1st, they have lost everything. Both of their jobs as well as their entire home, along with everything in it. They have even lost everything they had been saving for their baby.
I ask on their behalf, as their 20 year old nephew, please help me to help them through this holiday season. My Aunt and Uncle are incredible people. These guys have acted as role models to me growing up and I am the man I am today because of them.
There is only 1 week left until my cousin is born and my goal is to raise enough money to support the first few months of their new lives as parents.
Seriously everything helps, so please please please whether it be $5 or $50 please do not hesitate to donate.
If you are unable to donate at this time I completely understand, and I ask that you pray for them and their new baby to help them find understanding in all that has happened these last couple weeks.
Your support means the world to me, and thanks for taking the time to read this.
