LIFE IS SO UNPREDICTABLE :(( This tragedy really shook me :(

Hi guys, My name is Ruby Walia...I am raising funds for Huyen Van, Bui, & Nguyen Family, victims of this Fire. 
I am their neighbor & lived in the same housing community. The collected funds will be evenly distributed among these three families by Huyen.

Yesterday Aug 15th, around 12:30PM one house caught on fire in a Mobile home park, San Jose. I live in that same Park. Unfortunately they lost 3 precious lives, grandfather(60+), & two school grade kids,2 girls aged 10, who were inside the house.  The scene is devastated. Their whole house collapsed & burnt into ashes. Within minutes 2 families became Homeless :((

There are 3 victim families. 
Family #1 : Lost their 10 yrs old daughter Uyen, house, & every possession of it.
Family #2 : Lost 10 yrs old daughter Linda.(went to play with the other girl in that house)
Family #3 : Lost male adult, aged 62.

They lost evey possesion, everything. We are thankful to San Jose firefighters, & polilce department, who reached on time & did their best to calm the fire down. 

I am writing this while investigators are doing their work, TV channels are covering the story non-stop.
Family #1 is staying with their relatives.

I am requesting you to please open your hearts in aiding the family with any amount of donation you can provide at this time. Our love and prayers are with the Family; anything you can give will help.

 A little effort from my side as a neighbor, & a human.. 

Please Help spread the word !

Hi Everyone.
I don't know how & where to start from. When I created this page on Aug 16th, I had no clue what will be the outcome. I knew I just want to help those victim families as this tragedy really shook me, squeezed my heart & mind. I couldn't find a better way than creating GofundMe page to raise funds for them & blasted it on Social Media. I knew lives are irreplaceable, but the fact is those families have to stand back on their feet, live life & move on. For that Money plays a big role.
I was amazed to see an overwhelming response only in one day & that really boosted my hopes up.
I want to take a moment to pay my humble GRATITUDE to each one of you for standing together as a great community of noble people, supporting my cause, & giving hope to all those fire victim families & many more others, that YES, this world is full of generous people who will join hands together irrespective of any nationality, race, gender, color, creed etc. & open their hearts for people in need.
I am so grateful to Social Media for giving us a platform & extending our Horizons, where we can reach out to anyone in any part of the world. Bravo to my Hero Mark Zuckerberg.
Thanks a lot to all those lovely people who shared this post of mine to get maximum support. You all are amazing.
Those families are still dealing with this trauma, but I am sure after seeing so many supporters, city, & non profit organizations coming forward to help them out, they must have felt some ease.
THANKS A LOT EVERYONE FROM BOTTOM OF MY HEART. GOD BLESS YOU ALL & YOUR FAMILIES.
Heres the latest news.
