I was shocked and heartbroken, as I'm sure you are, to hear about the horrible tragedy last night in which 7 young children lost their lives in a fire. Please, let's help put a stop to these kinds of stories...

I was shocked and heartbroken, as all of us are, by the terrible tragedy that happened last night when 7 young children lost their lives in a fire.

As a Hatzolah EMS volunteer and a volunteer firefighter, I've unfortunately heard of too many cases of people dying tragically in fires, cases that could have been prevented with something as simple as a smoke detector, a carbon monoxide detector, or simple fire safety awareness.

Please help put a stop to these tragedies!

I'm starting an organization, we'll call it "Guard Your Lives," to educate people about fire safety, and to distribute smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.

Many years ago, after a similar tragedy, I had decided to start such an organization, but although we discussed it, it was never put into action, and I can't help but wonder if... Now let's make it happen before another tragedy happens, G-d forbid.

In our community we use a lot of fire; we light candles Friday night, for Yom Tov, and for Yartzeits, we leave the stoves on, we use warmers... We must do better to educate our community! There have been way too many times I've been to houses, and seen no smoke detectors, ones that are not functional, and many different kinds of fire safety hazards.

We must do more to educate people. We are all responsible for each other!

Please help me, donate as much as you can.

Saving one life is like saving the world. If we can save even one life, we are saving the world!

Please help by donating, volunteering, helping us fundraise, and you can surely help by sharing this and raising awareness. You can donate on this page, or with PayPal by clicking this link: PayPal.

Together, let's save lives and prevent more tragedies like this from happening.

Thank you so much,

Rabbi Dovid B. Kaplan
