On March 21st at 12:18 am I got a call from my grandma. She told me her house caught fire and everything was basically destroyed.

Her husband, my grandfather, Donald Gee, is a retired teacher from Mynderse Academy in Seneca Falls, NY.

Everything they owned (aside from their RV and vehicle) were destroyed in the blaze. Priceless items, items of value, personal items... All gone in a moment; my grandpa's old Coca Cola collection, his panda collection, my grandma's doll and Barbie collections, photos, trophies, and Lily their cat.

Luckily my grandparent's were in Florida and they were not hurt. Two of their grandchildren were staying in their house while they were gone, but thankfully were not there when house went up in flames.

Already there has been prayers and support pouring in via Facebook. Everyone in our community adores my grandparents. When I was in school, every year at least once a teacher would ask me if Don was my grandfather. When I said, "Yes" their response would always be, "Mr. Gee was my favorite teacher!" And then my grandma is the most selfless person I have ever met. She's constantly volunteering for her church and community, helping others and giving to those in need.

My goal is to give back to my grandparents who have given anything they ever could to help others, and now have lost their home. They would most certainly do the same for anyone else. With friends, family, and a community as kind as their's,  I know it is possible to provide help and support to rebuild their home and life. Anything will help.

My grandparents will be arriving in Seneca Falls tonight or tomorrow. They just took a long journey back to town from Florida. Soon, they will be returning to what used to be their home. Knowing what they're coming back to must be an unexplainable feeling and they are so brave. $4,200 has been raised for them, all thanks to you generous people!! We did not meet our goal but that was not the plan, anyways. No amount of money could replace some of the belongings lost in the fire. All we have are the sweet memories. But the fact that this community has the kindness and generosity that is does is amazing. We all couldn't be more thankful for your donations to help GIVE BACK to my grandparents and help them with the costs to rebuild their home. Please feel free to keep sharing this page and donating. I will post another update when they get home so you can all see their faces and reactions to your generosity!! Thank you all SO MUCH again. You have no idea how much this means to them.

My grandparents are two of the greatest human beings I've ever met. If I can be half the man my grandpa is and sweet like my grandma I will be truly blessed. Please help out two of the most important people in my life. That house meant so much to our entire family, but the fact that we all still have each other is so amazing. Thanks to everyone as the love and donations you've shared has truly touched the hearts of an awesome couple that I'm glad to call my grandparents.
