This photo was taken at our home, just a few short weeks ago. Little did we know what they would return home to face....
For those who do not know who I am, my name is Christian Hawes and I live in Jacksonville, FL. Wes is my mother's cousin. When I heard about the fire, I wanted to do something, anything I could to help, but without having even an adress to send help to I figured this would be the best way. The money raised in this campaign will go directly to Wes & Renate, to help them start over with whatever they have a need for. They escaped the fire with nothing more than what you see in the photo above, the clothes on their backs. Everything was lost. On Nov. 4th, they will be moving into a friend's vacant condo as a temporary "place of their own" while they figure out where to go from there. Once they are settled in, I will send them the funds that have been so graciously donated. Again, thank you for taking the time to read their story, and for your consideration.
