Starting Over Due to Hurricane Ian

Hi, it's Teresa and Melvin Santiago from Kissimmee, Florida. We created this fundraiser to start rebuilding our lives after losing our apartment, vehicles, furniture, and clothing. We lost everything. We had to leave our apartment and seek shelter outside the second-level hallway for hours before we could be rescued and go to our loved one home. Thankfully we were able to save Lucky, our chocolate labrador. We humbly ask you to support us in raising funds by contributing to our fundraiser, as you are aware of the havoc caused by the recent flood caused by Ian in Florida, which has taken homes from many. We need funds to get back on our feet. We will use the funds to put down on a new apartment and purchase a vehicle, furniture, clothing, and household items.

We would be pleased to have your support. Any amount you can contribute would be greatly appreciated. If you cannot support us by donating, please help by sharing our story. We understand Ian entirely has affected us all in some ways.

Thanking you in anticipation for your contribution and kindness.

The Santiago family
