Steven and Heather lost everything

33669046_1539293903149076_r.jpegMy brother, Steven lives with his girlfriend Heather in Panama City, Florida. Yesterday Panama City was hit with the devastation of hurricane Michael. They were lucky enough to have a safe place (stayed in a storage unit behind Heather's work.) 

However, after climbing over debris to get to the house they were renting they began to realize the true damage of their situation.

All they have left is his work vehicle and what was inside it. The house has a tree in the roof as well as his and her personal vehicles. Because of the extensive mess left behind from the hurricane they can't even get to the cars to see if they run. The house has water coming and and a ceiling caving in, with mud and water damaging all of their personal belongings-- furniture,  clothes,  memories, electronics, anything you would imagine in a normal household.

They will need to find a way to get into a new place, and start over. Hopefully in Panama City somewhere, being that's where my brother does his painting. Heather's job may not he available when they return. For now they are driving to my dad's in Orlando, but would like to get back to normal as soon as possible. Every little bit helps.

Even if we can't raise the whole goal, I'm sure he'll appreciate whatever we can raise.

My brother is a son of God and has turned his life around completely, please help show him there's a reason to keep up the good work. My family can only do so much. Even $5 will make a difference to him and Heather.

My family and I Thank you!
Sincerely,
Danielle Olsavsky
Steven's sister along with the rest of my family. Including his father Daniel and mother Denise.
