Jessica, a single mom and her 10 year old son were devastated by a fire in their home in the middle of the night this past week in Chilliwack. They escaped only with their lives and the clothes on their backs, everything else has been lost. Possessions, vehicle, even her wallet and identification we're destroyed.

Luckily Jessica has a great network of friends to help her out in the interim with places to stay and insurance will cover the basics to get her on her feet. However, with such a devastating and total loss, there are many other expenses and hardships. Jessica is self employed through the summer and without a home base and tools of her trade, her ability to earn an income has been seriously hampered.

Jessica is a hard worker and a good mother and deserves better. Let's get together and do what we can to help her through this difficult time.

There is a great story to come out of this mess. Besides the clothes on their backs, nothing remained, or so they had thought.

When they fled the home, their cat named Coco was believed to be lost. The next day Jessica was handed Coco wrapped in a cherished blanket that my grandma made for her as a gift, in tact, if you can believe it. I don't believe in much, but how a cat and that blanket survived this fire is somewhat of a miracle...

Thank you so much for your donations so far, Jessica is very grateful for everyone's support. I am setting up a withdrawal for her this weekend so she can access the funds right away.

Some people expressed concern about how much money GoFundMe me takes and there is some misinformation out there. They do not charge any fees to use the platform in Canada. You have the option to donate to them to support the platform, but that is your choice. The only fee involved is for online payment processing, which is standard for online debit and credit card transactions. It totals 2.9% of the value. Jessica gets all the rest of the money direct to her account. You can read more about it here: https://support.gofundme.com/hc/en-us/articles/203604424-Fees-on-GoFundMe
