Give Back to Don and Donna Gee
$4,745 of $10,000 goal
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.
All your grandkids are awesome :)
Isn't our grandson awesome?
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.
In one day this fund has achieved over 25% of the goal. I am thankful that this community can pull together to help folks who are in need and have helped countless others their entire lives. Well done, very well done.
Donna and I are so blessed to have such a loving family and wonderful people in our lives especially through times like this. I especially want to tell my ex-students how much it means to me to have you in my life all these years. It is helping us big time with our present hardships with the fire and my family's health issues. We love you all!!! :)
