On Monday January 8th, our house in the new dorp area of Staten island, went on fire. The damage was so severe that the house can not be saved, and we were left with nothing but the clothes on our back. My mother, my brother and I are a hard working family that never asks for help even when we probably need it. Now however, we are left with no choice. The red cross turned us away, and so did the NYC department of housing. We are in desperate need of your help, whether it be a donation, sharing our story through social media, sharing it through word of mouth, or even just keeping us in your prayers to start getting our lives back together. We need every bit of help we can get. The three of us really appreciate all your help. God bless all of you.
