Help Adam Recover

I started this fundraiser to help my brother recover from the unimaginable loss he has suffered.

In the early morning hours of February 25th, the home of Kara Close and Adam Sawyer accidentally caught on fire. By the time the blaze was extinguished, the home was almost completely gone along with everything in it. Tragically, Kara and her cat Lela were in the home at the time. Adam was on the road for work and was thankfully spared his life.

Unfortunately, this horrific event has left Adam without his beloved life partner Kara, his favorite pet, Lela, and their home, lovingly known as “Whiskey Jane,” along with almost all of its contents. This Go Fund Me page was created with the hopes of mitigating his financial loss and helping him to begin the process of building a new life.

While not all costs are known at this point, the immediate needs would be things like clothing, various household items, and other day-to-day needs. Beyond that, while he luckily has a place to stay at his mother’s apartment, a new home or housing will need to be secured at some point. The home was potentially uninsured, but we don’t know for certain at this time. Regardless, there will be cleanup costs of the property and any associated expenses.

As Adam would and has helped us out in our times of need, we are asking for friends, family, or anyone moved by Kara and his story, or this unfathomable tragedy to donate what they comfortably can to help in recovery.
