I am the older brother of Archie, brother in law to Lisett Peterson and the uncle to three amazing young children Julius, Scarlett, and Giselle. I am raising money to help them recover from a devastating house fire that destroyed all their posessions and has left them homeless. The funds will be used to get them into a new home and to help replace all the furniture they lost. They need help as soon as possible given they are now without a place to live.

Bakersfield Now News
My 11 year old son Ethan realized at 1am that the fire alarm was going off and went into the hallway to see why. When we walked out there he walked into a home fully engulfed in flames and black smoke. Instead of running out the door to save himself he realized everyone was trapped and immediately began pounding on my brothers door screaming to get them out. The fear he must have experienced could cause anyone to run for their life. But he stayed in the midst of the flames and smoke and refused to leave until everyone was awake. Because of that bravery I still have my family alive. They most certainly would not have made it out without Ethan.

This is a loving family who takes care of anyone who ever needs it. And now they are in need of help. Please help them so they can get their children into a home again.

100% of the funds raised will be given to Archie's family to move them into a new home with furniture.

I see the donations slowed down, In Jesus name I pray for lots more to come in, I know it is so much needed. So it stayed at the current amount for a day now. Just wanted you to give so you guys can see a new amount this morning to give you hope. I'm so glad to have my family. Love you so so dearly. Mom
