Helping 17 people rebuild their lives and home.

A home exploded on Long Island this week.  An 18 month old baby boy was killed in the explosion and 17 family members were seriously injured.   The house and all its contents was reduced to rubble and dust.  These families lost the baby and they lost all of their belongings including clothes and momentos.

I would like to help these people get back on their feet.  I want to help them pay for their medical bills since they do not have medical insurance.

My first concern is helping them buy clothing and for them to move into permanent housing and help them pay their monthly bills until they can get back on their feet.   The money received will go towards clothing, rent, food and shelter. 

It is extremely important for us to help each other.   If we don't look out for each other in this world, then what have we really got.  I believe we should be there for each other in this world.

A beautiful baby boy was killed.  The family is in mourning and in grief over his death.  A lot of the injured are still in the hospital.

If we can get them a permanent shelter and get them back on their feet, it would be a magnitude of help from all of us.


Money and lots of it.  The more money we can raise, the more we can do for these families that were injured.  We cannot bring a baby back but we can help them get back on their feet.

If we do not achieve our goal, the money we do receive will go toward paying for new clothes for these families and to help them get back on their feet.  We will help pay for their medical bills.  The more money that we raise, the more we can do to help them.

If I can get a lot of more, I would like to buy them a new house!!  That is my ultimate goal.
