Help my family survive their fire
It's going to take many months of hard labor, sweat and tears to put their home back together. The siding needs to be replaced, new roof and windows and all of her appliances and furniture are gone. They have nothing left but a shell on half of the house. The entire inside is destroyed.
Unfortunately Carol was placed with a decision to either have knee surgery on both knees, where if the surgery wasen't done would eventually cripple her or buy house insurance for her home. It's sad to have to make these decisions and never thought that this fire would take her home from her and her family.
So many families don't realize how sometimes you have to make a decision financially to choose..food on the table, clothes on your back..a warm place to call home..health insurance/home insurance. We're not all fortunate to be able to have all these comforts and sometimes we take all of these comforts for granted.
Carol was never rich, but rich in love for her family and grandchildren. She opened her heart and home to whomever needed a place to stay without asking for anything in return. She is a welcoming person who would never turn her back on friends and family or total strangers. She has never asked for a handout and has worked for everything she owns.
Today, I ask you to please open your hearts and somehow find a way to contribute to help put this family back in their home and help repair the damage from the fire that destroyed their safe haven.
She's been through way too much heartache in her life but always finds a way to look at the bright side of everything. That must be the Irish in her..to never give up..to always have faith and to carry on and move forward.
Please...any donation would help.
It is truly overwhelming to see the love and support you have all shown to help my sister in law and her children. There are truly no words to describe the gratitude and generosity in just 24 hours. Please keep spreading the word. It's a long road ahead, but with all the love and support she will pull through.
I am truly humbled and so very grateful to all who have donated to this fund. So many I don't even know. I may have never helped you but I always try to help others. I love the pay it forward mentality. I truly hope that those that give will get in return. Thank you all so much. You are helping me so that I may help my family to keep a roof over their head. God bless you all.
