Lost everything in house fire

My name is Marcus and im a father of 3. Early this morning mine and my brothers home had caught fire and we lost everything in the fire. I lost clothes, shoes, money I had in savings, ID's, Christmas presents, etc. The only thing I have left is the clothes i am currently wearing. I currently do not work but I have been applying for jobs daily. Unfortunately I have not been able to find one yet but I won't give up. I was supposed to start as an apprentice this sat at a barber shop but due to the fire I now lost all of my equipment that is needed to be able to start working this Saturday. Also i am in the process of trying to get my daughter into my care and now that i no longer have a home it is going to make things much harder. I am creating this go fund me in hopes that someone can help me out with being able to replace the things I lost as well as hopefully be able to find a place to live. I am in desperate need of a place to live and with me not being able to find work yet im afraid of what my outcome will be after the devastation I just experienced. I understand times are very hard right now for everyone and I understand holidays are here and money is tight. Even if you can't donate please share my story incase there is someone else out there who can. Every share counts and It is very much appreciated. Thankyou and God bless
