Imagine your house catches on fire and you lose everything you own. Now add up the cost to replace everything. Sucky huh?? Last night I was talking on facebook with one of my really good friends, and she stopped talking mid conversation, which was no big deal she has a 1 year old and is 19 weeks pregnant, sometimes you just have to go. But within the hour I found out she left mid convo because their apartment building had caught on fire. I know this apartment well, because we lived in it for a year and half and just moved out 2 months ago. It is OLD the fire spread fast, a lot of peoples homes and businesses were lost in a matter of hours. My friends got out safely but now they have to start from scratch on everything they own. They need a new crib, change table, furniture, household items, kitchen items, clothing and so much more. This is a huge financial burden. They lost so much, but we are all thanking God that they are safe and no one was hurt in the fire. I am asking if you are reading this to donate a few dollars to them to help re-build what they have lost. You can pay-pal the money to me and I will give it to them (I promise). You can send paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org. They are ordering new cloth diapers this week (let me tell you how much that would suck) and are currently looking for a new place to live. If you can donate please do. If you live in the Sussex, NB area please fell free to donate anything you can to this family. You can contact me if you need more information.
You can see in this picture the before and after. The building that is torn down is to the right of Matt and Kim’s apartment. They tore it down to stop the spreading of the fire. You can just see their apartment on the right. The room is gone and there is nothing left inside.
I can’t get the video on my blog but here is a video of the fire https://www.facebook.com/deborahgilbert/posts/141622762647496
