Chris 4x4's family property caught fire and his brother and fiance had lost their home and vehicles. Their entire home is gone, there is nothing left. His job depended upon tools that were lost. Their photographs, clothes, EVERYTHING is gone. Their dog is at the vet with burns and is pulling though. The only insurance they had is on one of their vehicles.
A lot of people here are coming through with clothes and offers to replace appliances and the necessities. So far his brother Jason is okay with clothes now, through the generosity of those here. We've even had an offer of sending dog food for poor Fred!
But I was thinking....packing and sending things can be costly, and currently Jason and Michelle are in a shelter that has no where to keep these wonderful gifts.
How about gift cards? There's a WalMart and a Safeway near them and I'm sure that they can find what they need most right now at either one of those places. All it costs to send a gift card is the price of a regular stamp. They aren't bulky, they don't have to worry about storage of them and they can buy things as they need them. What do you all think?
I'm sure if we all send a little bit, even if it's a five dollar gift card, it will add up!
Let's help out Chris and his brother. He's given so much to us here....and he is not the type to ask. It would be less stress knowing that you have something to pull you through for now.
If you can't help financially, words or support do wonders and I'm sure that is helping the human spirit. And that is really important too.
If you are able to help with a gift card..........I bet if you PM Chris he may be able to give an address to send it to? EDIT: Please PM me for address. Out of respect for the person who is offering their mailbox, I will send it through PM. Thanks for understanding.
Thanks for taking the time to consider this, everyone. We are family here and whether it be financial or emotional, we always come through for each other.
Edit: For those of you who want to order and send a gift card online, you can do so here:
Thank you again, everyone!! You are making a big difference in a couple's lives.
