Please help Meaghan & Grant Foshe

My niece and her husband lost EVERYTHING in the fire today at the Olde English Village apartment complex in West Des Moines. My niece Meaghan was home when she smelled smoke and the fire alarm went off. She was able to grab her cat and safely escape the burning building but the fire took everything she and her husband owned. They have nothing but the clothes they are wearing. They are a young newlywed couple in their 20's, in their first apartment. They had spent so much time and money decorating their first home with things they've been collecting their whole lives. Everything they owned and loved was in that apartment. My niece also had a home based Etsy business, and all her inventory and business equipment was in there. Her income. Everything gone. And these two are the sweetest, kindest kids you will ever meet. Stuff like this isn't supposed to happen to good people. But it did. And it happened to everyone in that building. Imagine standing outside watching Everything you own burning in front of you. That's what we did today. We are so thankful and blessed that Meaghan and her kitty Waldo made it out safe, and we know that everything inside is just "stuff" when compared to a life, but imagine having all your stuff at 3:00pm and at 4:00pm, you have NOTHING! Things can be replaced with time and money, and while I never thought I'd ever have to do something like this, I need to ask for your help. They don't even have the basic necessities we all take for granted everyday.  Our family will be doing everything we can to help Meaghan and Grant, but if you are able to help them in anyway please consider donating to this fund. We thank you tremendously for taking the time to read this and please if you are able to help them, we will be eternally grateful! 
Thank you and God Bless you all!
