My cousin, Jamie, & her 3 year old son, Logan, were victims of a flash flood back home in NY & they lost EVERYTHING. Clothes, food, appliances, apartment itself, & even her SUV. She has struggled through a lot in life &, being only 4 years older than myself, I could never imagine going through half of what she has gone through in her lifetime. I am so proud of her for finally having created a healthy, stable life for her & Logan....& now this.
Jamie is a restaurant server, doing everything she can to get by already. This has been devastating for both her & the rest of my family. I live in California but the rest of my family lives near her in New York. I want to raise as much money as I can to send back home to help them out. The rest of our family has been working tirelessly to help pick up the pieces, but nothing remains salvageable. Please, if you can donate, every little bit helps.
Here is a video of the flood's aftermath. The couple interviewed are the landlords for my cousin's apartment & the building the footage surrounds is where Jamie & Logan lived. Some of the people walking around helping are my relatives & friends.
