My brother, Curt, his wife, and my 6 nieces and nephews lost their home last night to a fire. Thanks to God they are all safe. The home is gone though.
No one has worked harder than my brother to buy a home. Actually, I don't know another person that works harder than him in general. He works a full time job, raises 6 kids, has a working farm, and still finds time to be a good husband and dad.
I'm devastated for them all. No one deserves this less than they do. They are the first ones in line to help when anyone needs it. They have helped friends of mine that they had never met. They organize fundraisers when needed. They're just all around great people. Last year they officially adopted 3 siblings to increase their household to 8.
They have been so generous and helpful that I feel it's necessary to help them. They will have to find a way to transition to another home. They will have a lot of extra expenses and incidentals that come up along the way. I was chatting with my sister-in-law earlier and her worry is that the kids won't have a home for Christmas. They are seriously the most selfless people I know. Please, if you're able, make a donation to help them get their lives back as quickly as possible. Thank you!
