Johnny Hancock's Fire help

My brother Johnny Hancock suffered a major loss on the morning of January 14, 2018, when a fire broke out in his home.  Johnny has been a resident of Pineblufffor 32 years. This is where he raised his family and planned to live permanently. Unfortunately, he did not have homeowners insurance.  He was able to get everyone out of the house except for one of his dogs, a cat and his two blue and Gold Macaw Parrots that were left to him by his late wife. She had lost her fight with cancer just a year ago. He kept his animals in a room with a heater to protect them from the cold. Apparently the heaters electrical cord may have been chewed by a puppy causing the house to catch fire. Worried about the people and animals inside he risked his life to try and save everyone. The people were able to get out unharmed however crawling to the back room to help the animals, Johnny received 1st-degree burns to his face. He was admitted to UNC for minor burns and smoke inhalation. 
The house is a total loss, along with all his belongings. Can you imagine everything you owned is gone in a flash? What a cruel thing to happen to someone who is retired on a fixed income. Johnny earned his living as a mechanic and is known to do favors for people without charging them. He is on a fixed income and simply can not afford the cost of living and replacing everything. We are asking for donations to help replace his home with a single wide trailer and the cost of the cleanup from the fire. All money raised will be used exclusively towards his new residence.  We appreciate all donations.  Any donations will help in rebuilding his life. Thank you
