Rebuilding after Cohoes fire

Imagine losing every single thing you own, in just a few minutes. Imagine watching your home, and all of your belongings engulf in flames, and you can’t do anything about it. Yesterday my sister Beth, and her 6 year old son Gabe, lost everything in a massive fire in Cohoes, NY. We are beyond grateful that everyone got out safely, even the dog, but they literally have nothing left but ash and dust, and the clothes on their backs. We are raising money to help them 1. buy the necesseties like clothes, shoes, and food, and 2. get them a new home with furniture, etc. Gabe is beyond devastated to learn that he no longer has his baby blanket, pokemon cards, and a bed. He just wants to have his home back. All my sister cares about is making him happy and comfortable again. He is the most kind, outgoing, smart, respectful, loving little boy who adores his mom and dog more than anything. They deserve to have a chance to rebuild what they have lost. Please, if you can, any donation will help. Thank you so much! (Also, a huge thank you to the firefighters who forced, and carried my sister and her boyfriend out of the building, they saved their lives)
