A girl I know from seminary recently lost everything she owns in an apartment fire. Like, everything. She came home to see fire trucks parked outside her building, and then the worst-case scenario (you know, the one we all think of when we see fire trucks near our house) came true. Thank G-d, she is okay, and has a great group of friends who are there to help her, both physically and emotionally. Her stuff, however, is not okay.
Just imagine what it’s like to not have anything that you just had the day before. Pictures, posters, books, clothing, furniture, CDs, DVDs, mementos, all those memories. Then imagine having to replace it all.
If you would like to help out, you can donate here (much thanks to Havah for setting this up so quickly!). If you’re in the NJ area and would like to help out by donating furniture or whatever, contact me.
