The gas explosion in Sun Prairie caused my brothers’ home to burn down. He and my two nieces lost everything, but we are so thankful they are safe. Please consider donating a small amount to help then start over and rent a new place. Thank you for your support and your prayers.

Thank you to all of our supporters - your help has far exceeded our hopes of support from the community. I'd like to share what my brother Joe posted on Facebook last night:

Its been two weeks since I saw my house in flames. I'm still in a haze about it, not able to process. Today was the first day I was able to start going through things in the rubble at the house and it's heartbreaking to do. But with all the support we have been receiving, I can keep my head high and push forward!

I want to take some time to thank every single one of you out there! I am so blown away by how this community has come together at this time of loss! We will be hanging a banner tomorrow down at the site and if you see me down there, please, get my attention, so I can shake your hand or give you a hug because I love all of you for what you have done for my family! We are forever in your debt!!!
