Help the Majewski Family

$16,335 of $19,000 goal

Raised by 235 people in 10 months
Created January 6, 2018
On January 5th, 2018 Laura and Tom Majewski had a devastating house fire.  While no humans were home when the fire occured, their sweet dog Stella perished in the fire. 

Half of their home was destroyed by the fire itself and the other half was destroyed by smoke and water damage. They will need to replace everything they can and cope with the loss of all the irreplaceable thing such as Stella and several family items.


The Majewski’s have two small children and also host two exchange students. Although insurance is helping, to be able replace all their belongings and to find a home in the same area to rent that is big enough to rent will be a substantial financial burden.



It is important for them to stay in the area so their kids and their students don’t have to endure any more disruptions in their lives such as switching schools and daycares. They plan to rebuild but have been told it will be months before they could possibly return home.

Please help them rebuild their lives while they grieve for Stella and their family home.

THANK YOU to everyone that has made such a difference in the lives of Laura, Tom, Thaddeus, and Athena. Your amazingly generous donations have provided them the financial padding they desperately needed until insurance monies became available. The Majewskis have rented a suitable temporary home, and have found a measure of stability while they rebuild their lives.

Losing their home was not the defining event of that day - it was losing Stella. "We would be whole if we had Stella," has been the common refrain. Since January, grief has been the family's constant companion.

However, the amazing response from the online community and their Richfield neighbors has inspired Laura and Tom. To honor Stella's memory and everyone's selflessness, they are launching a non-profit dedicated to helping lost pets get home faster by "following Stella's Paws."

YOU ARE ALL INVITED to a Celebration of Life for Stella and informal launch of Stella's Paws. Remember the happy times, raise a glass with cheer, come celebrate Stella in honor of her life.

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018 from 3pm to 7pm
Fireside Foundry
6736 Penn Ave S, Richfield, MN 55423

Thank you all again for your generosity. Laura and Tom are feeling truly blessed by your outpouring of support. They were told today that the sunroom will need to be completely demolished and rebuilt. The entire rest of the house will need to stripped down to the studs specially cleaned, and put back together. This is going to be a long process to get them back into their home.

We toured the house yesterday and the damage is extremely hard to see. So much of their home is just melted away.

We will continue to provide updates to you. If you'd like more ways to help, please consider providing a meal for the family. It could be something home cooked or delivery. Here is a sign up link:
