Chant Family Fire Benefit Fund

Dear Friends,

On Saturday, February 28, my long-time friends Jeremy Chant, Michelle Chant (Knapp), and their daughter Kyra lost their home and all of their personal belongings to an electrical fire.  Nobody was home at the time and thankfully, everyone is healthy. 

So, we have some fine people and their lovely daughter who have had to start over with essentially the clothes on their backs.  I can only imagine how deflated and lost they might feel.  I'd love to find a way to help them recover some of what is lying in a pile of charred bricks and rubble where their house used to be.  Their family and friends have been supportive, but I'd like to help them get on their feet quickly.

I’m offering you a portal to donate to them, should this appeal to your sense of community.  I’m not asking you to donate, that’s up to you.  I just know that every drop in the bucket counts when you are starting out from nothing.  I will thank you in advance.  Please know that all money raised will go directly to Jeremy, Michelle, and Kyra.

Yours in community,

Jim Mattice

Please note, I had to set a goal, I have no idea what we can raise, but GoFundMe requires a number in there,  Anything helps.
