THE STORY:

Hello everyone. I'm new to Crowdrise and have never did crowd-sourcing before but figured I would give it a shot. Here is what has happened. My Dad's home caught on fire this past Sunday and burned completely to the ground in a total loss. I received a phone call from one of my best friends who also happened to be be a firefighter the morning this happened. My wife answered the phone and it was my dad informing us that his home had went up in flames about 6am that morning and that he had barely (but fortunately) made it out and lost his phone in the fire. His words to me were that "God woke me up and nudged me to get out if I wanted to live". Coincidentally, the home didn't have any insurance on it at the time due to unforeseen circumstances. As a result, the home, furniture, clothing as well as various other valuables were all lost in the fire. As of now, my Dad is staying with me and my wife and he has received some clothes from friends but could really use some financial support to help him get back to a suitable life in a home of his own. He is a very hard working man who lives a simple life and played a major role in getting me through college. He works 40 plus hours a week as a truck driver and comes home and watches westerns and is very generous man who stays out of the "limelight". It's unfortunate that this has happened but we're glad to have him alive. I am asking anyone who is compelled to give financial support to help my Dad get back on his feet to please do so on this website. Feel free to email me at jonathanmarks1@gmail.com if you have any further questions. All the best to you and yours, Jonathan
