Thanks to all who passed on from gofundme:
“On February 24, Zack and I experienced most people’s worst nightmare. We were evacuated from our home on a few moments’ notice for our own safety. Within an hour, we were alerted to the terrifying fact that we would never live their again, and many of our possessions had been destroyed. The middle section of the three-story building where five of us had been living collapsed from negligent construction nextdoor.
We have now been informed that the city of DC will conduct a piecemeal demolition of our home, and we will only be able to salvage priceless items. Not only are we homeless and possessionless, but we feel emotionally and physically destroyed. I know some people feel these fund sites are tacky, but this is what the are designed for–to help people in crisis. We are fighting tooth-and-nail with the insurance companies…but they are not quick to offer up cash to assist in things like food, toiletries, transportation, and putting a deposit down on a new apartment. We thank everyone for their support and I can honestly tell you I have never felt more defeated in my adult life.”
