On the 6th of January we received the devastating news that my Mum's beautiful home in Sheldon, Missouri, had been completely destroyed by a fire, caused we believe, by an electrical fault in the attic.

They were asleep when my mum awoke hearing a strange noise up above believing it to be hail, but then she saw thick black smoke billowing through the air vents, she screamed to her husband and neice that lives with them to "get out the house, FIRE !!" They had 5 minutes before the house was completely consumed by smoke, my mum managed to grab her coat and her husband, his laptop, and their faithful dog, as they ran outside to watch the fire take hold of the whole house, they saw the last 60 years worth of treasured memories within go up in flames, which can never be replaced. Even their car was destroyed and that isn't covered by 3rd party insurance either. They have to pay for the fire fighters and equipment used, and the water bill which will be high because the fire fighters left it on and it flooded the basement.

Unfortunately due to the high cost, and their low income they were uninsured so have lost everything, with no hope of ever rebuilding, even their granchildren's cat that they were looking after perished.

We have been feeling so desperately helpless being so far away from them, and want to do all we can to help them to start to rebuild their lives again, they are so humble and so grateful to be alive that they would never ask for any help from anyone themselves.

We are sure you can empathise with how we feel, in fact we have been truly humbled by the numerous offers of help and support we have already received, this has inspired us to set up this fundraising page; we know there are many kind, compassionate, generous and caring people who would like the chance to make a difference to someones life and we would like to be able to reach out to as many of you as possible.

If you are able to donate, we are so very grateful however, if you are not able to at this time, would you kindly please share this with as many people as possible, via Facebook, Twitter or email etc so that others may also have the opportunity to help.

Thank you once again for all the love and support we have received so far and we can't wait to keep you updated with any progress !!

All our love

Jasmin, and my brothers, Stafford, Dave, Julian and Sam
