O'Brian Family Storm Fund

Hello everyone,
My name is Oksana Kowalsky. I have known the O'Brien family for approximately 8 years. Levi and Heather have 4 children living in their home. Along with 4 children, Heather also takes care of her dad and her Aunt who recently moved in with them. They are a family who has nothing, but who are the first one to give anything to anyone.
On June 23, 2017 Mid-Michigan was hit was a massive storm. That left multiple roads closed due to flooding. The morning on June 23 at 3:15 a.m. Heather awoke to a crashing noise. She opened her eyes and a tree branch was a foot from her head and she was full of glass. As she went outside, she realized her worst nightmare. The big oak tree had split down the middle and fell on the house, 4 cars, and a shed in the backyard. Due to the massive amount of damages, the family is without a home. The youngest child is only 6 years old, with the oldest being 17. I am trying to raise as much money as I possibly can to help this family with fixing their home and buying a car for the family. This family had nothing before this storm, and now they need $3,000 for deductible and also need a vehicle to get to work. Along with these expenses, the family also needs funds to rebuild their home.
Please donate. This family is so strong and amazing. But they need your help. A little bit can go a long ways.
Please share!!
