First, here is the story...  http://wtop.com/fairfax-county/2015/10/reston-couple-pulled-burning-house/

Liz & Tyler have become two people that I cherish very much in my life. They are two truly amazing, loving, caring, humorous (and so much more) individuals who did not deserve any of this. They lived for their animals and it is such a tragic loss. Although I know that none of us can replace what was lost we can help them to rebuild their lives and try to overcome this great obstacle that has been placed in their way. Liz & Tyler are anything if not resilient. We must all be here to provide the love and support they will need through this trying time and the money to help them rebuild a life together. Anything is appreciated, even if it is a home cooked meal for them once they are home and recovering (which I would be happy to help facilitate if needed). I appreciate anyone who will take just a few moments to look at this and think of the ways that Tyler and Liz have touched their lives and send positive energy their way. I love you Liz & Tyler and I hope this helps in any way you both will need.

Thank you again to everyone for reaching out! Liz and Tyler are both recovering nicely and are doing much better. Sam and I still plan on meeting anyone with donations on Sunday, but we are no longer in need of furniture! Thank you to those that have offered theirs up!

Hello everyone! Thank you again for all your support! Sam and I have decided to have our donation drop off this coming Sunday, October 25th, from 12:30-1:30/2pm in the Sears parking lot at the Dulles Town Center. We will have a white jeep and green subaru. If anyone has any furniture they would like to donate, please let me know ahead of time so we can arrange transport. We no longer need a large couch, but will still take a small loveseat and any furniture for any other room of the home (coffee tables, bedroom, kitchen, etc). We will be taking anything from clothes, to kitchen items and even electronics. Thanks!

As far as food.. The only thing we'd like to recommend at this point is gift cards to places that have smoothies, milkshakes, soup, or something of the sort. They have very sore throats and liquid things are best at this point.

Liz and Tyler--I know we just met you this past Saturday at World of Beer, but I worked with your mom Debbie for years at RCC. John, Danny and I share a townhouse in Fairfax, right off the Vienna metro, and we have a spare bedroom that's furnished if you guys ever need a place to stay during this process, as well as clothes. Mark Benedict knows how to reach us, or you can text me at 571-305-2657 if you need anything. Our thoughts are with you.

I watched this unfold from across the parkway and was praying for them immediately. Please let me know how I can help. Clothes, food, household goods, you name it.

My husband and i were talking last night and he brought up a good point- we have 2 chairs we could give, for example, and they could be maybe used for a kitchen set, etc.. but... I wonder if there could be a list made -- so they don't end up getting like 22 kitchen chairs, but no table, and also 7 winter coats that don't even fit, etc?

I have tons of fashion accessories (sunglasses, watches, scarves, jewelry), placemats/napkin rings/napkins, wine and wineglasses, and candles that smell pretty. If you end up having a collection somewhere please post the time and address here.

I remember Liz and Tyler from cooking camp at RCC -they were camp counselors --I know you are sad--without your cats and dogs - if you need to snuggle a cat-- my cat PafFoot is available. I hope you both get better soon -this is from my Lego save up jar but your bird needs bird seed! Lars --(11-yo)
