Rebuilding after the Fire

Noone can ever really know what will happen or know what goes on behind the drywall or ceiling of your home. It's hard, or nearly impossible to predict that your house and everything you worked hard for all your life will disintegrate in a matter of minutes due to a fire caused by your electrical wiring. To make matters worse (in addition to the near death experience you barely escaped from) you have no insurance  and now you have to start all over and your future seems borderline dismal and uncertain. It's like a scene from one of your worst nightmares, except you are awake and it's very real. That is exactly what happened. In a matter of minutes the entire house was burned down to the studs and the roof was obliterated and the entire home covered in ash, soot and filled with a strong stench of smoke that could choke you if you inhaled it. The entire contents of your home including your things that you can't put a price on, are all gone in a blink of an eye. We do not wish this feeling on anyone. We hope that you will consider finding in your heart to give whatever amount you can to help us. No matter how small you may think your donation is, trust me, it means the world to us. We need to tear down the old uninhabitable unsound structure that we once called our home, and rebuild a modest home. We are not looking to build a mansion, just a little place we can call home once again. Please help us if you can and if you are not able to help monetarily but may know someone who might, we ask that you please share this with anyone you think would want to help. We have lost absolutely everything from a small potato peeler to our beds and couches, photos, and any small things we used to take for granted like a comb or a brush. We estimate it may cost 15-20 thousand to tear down the burnt frame of the house and would like the rest of the funds to buy materials necessary to start rebuilding our home. On behalf of our entire family, thank you. God bless.
