A new start for our family

Emmanuel McBride  Brampton, ON
Last night, our family's lives changed in a way we could never have imagined. My sister, mother, and I lost our home - my single mom's first bought house. We are suddenly and currently staying in a family shelter with nothing but the clothes on our back. Our townhouse in Brampton, ON at 9 Darras Court was burned down the night of Dec. 12, 2015. We didn't have content insurance at the time due to financial difficulties, so we will get nothing in return. The greatest Christmas gift for our family would be to be able to live in our own warm home again. Keep us in your prayers and keep your family close, because they're the most important thing. Anything will help. God bless you.

Wow. Just wow. My family and I are completely overwhelmed and touched at the response from this community. Each and every single one of you are making such a difference in our lives.  None of us thought that we would even get a quarter of our goal, but you proved us so wrong. You have truly given our family the best Christmas present possible: hope. We may still be in a shelter right now, but we're organizing all of our resources and means to get our life back on track and into a home for Christmas. I pray that all of your families will be as happy as we currently are despite everything that has happened. Much love from my family to yours. Thank you for the strength to continue on. We love you.

Pray to God to give you strength to get through hard times. Just wanted to point out that your building insurance (assuming you didn't cancel building insurance) will / should cover your building/house loss. Banks do not allow mortgages without building insurance. Content insurance however, is optional, and you are correct that contents will not be covered.

Sorry I can't help out at this time but re check your insurance policy, I have house insurance and content insurance is automatically added(the amount is based on the value of the house) , they started this quite a few years ago. Maybe some don't but I was under the impression they all did. Best of luck to you.
