Paddy and Alisha McKevitt need our help.

About 6 am on the morning of February 14, 2018, Alisha awoke to the smell of smoke. Paddy was out making his deliveries. She got up to investigate, and as she approached the old part of the house she heard a crackling sound and felt heat coming from the closed door.  She knew at once the house was on fire. Anxious to get out as quickly as possible Alisha turned and ran, calling for the dogs to follow. Fortunately, she made it out along with their dogs, Woodrow and Petey. But their recently rescued dog, Rosie, and their two cats did not survive. 

The house was a total loss, and it was not insured. In fact, it could not be insured until it was brought up to code, which they had been working for months to do. They had just installed a new roof which had depleted all their savings.

All of us who know Paddy and Alisha know they made a hard decision to move back to Ireland, so Paddy could care for his mother. He had to leave behind the BraveHearts nonprofit organization to which he had dedicated heart and soul, and together build a new life in Ireland. But now they face an overwhelming challenge.

Their wonderful friends, neighbors and Paddy's family have rushed to help. They have put up Paddy and Alisha in a vacant house, and given them food, clothing and comfort. Meanwhile, they are slowly coming to grips with how they will rebuild their lives. 

That's where we come in. We are trying to raise money to help Paddy and Alisha to rebuild. The funding goal is $80,000, which will not cover the full cost, but will go a long way to getting them back on their feet. Any amount will help. They have a long journey ahead, but as they struggle to overcome this new setback, we want them to know they have our love and support.

Thank you.
