This time of year I know things can be tight financially, and it always seems like everyone has their hands out asking for money, or donations. However this is a chance to help one of our own.
My brother in law Adam Ellis is a recruit firefighter with Fairfax County Fire Rescue. He let me know that one of his classmates recruit firefighter Jill Sears house caught fire losing most of her families belongings (husband, and 2 children). This is a difficult time any time of year but especially this close to Christmas.
This is just one of the pictures from the damage done to their home.
The biggest way you can help is by going to the go fund me site here http://www.gofundme.com/searsfamily and donating some money. I have donated $50. I am sure they will also need clothes, food, and possibly presents for the kids on Christmas day. Any little bit will help.
While other charities are important, this is a chance to help one of our own in a time where they desperately need help.
So please donate, spread the word on social media, and lets help the Sears family have a great holiday.
As usual thanks for reading, spread the word, and STAY SAFE!
