Torres Family Fire Recovery

Our family of six, including my wife and our four young children, rencently returned to the Vancouver area and happily settled into our new home.  Two nights ago, our dog woke us up just past 3am as a fire tore through the house, destroying everything. We were lucky to escape with our lives.  Everyone is healthy, safe and sound - including the dog and twin cats . We have been left without a home, without any of our belongings. We appreciate your thoughtful support.

We are hoping for a Christmas miricle of $2500 to help get our children what they need for the coming months. We also hope we can get a little extra to make sure we can give them a couple presents and a small tree for the hotel room we will be living in.
