Around 9pm on Thursday 27th December 2018, Natasha's home in Barataria was destroyed by fire. She lived with her parents and dog, they escaped with some injuries but they lost EVERYTHING in the fire.
Please help in any way you can, no amount is too small. The goal is to raise as much as possible to help this family, retirees and a single female, to rebuild their home and lives which will no doubt be forever changed.
Read Natasha's own words and the news article for yourselves and please be generous. Anything is appreciated.
It’s true that there are so many things we take for granted in life, until they are gone. I took for granted thehouse that was my home. I took for granted my bed. My baby photos, clothes and shoes that I saved from childhood. The silly souvenirs that made me smile. My hundreds of books! I took for granted the comfort of being able to go home. Home. As I remember it. And now it's gone. In the blink of an eye, a spark and power surge that ignited my ceiling in my room. EVERYTHING IS GONE.
The last photo I posted on social media was of my blue shoes on the blue comforter... that's the last pic of my bed. Less than two hours later, it was all gone. It's important to value the little things in your life. They may not overwhelm you with joy but they matter. When you cannot go home again...it matters. When literally everything you own is gone, you know how much it matters. In times of profound darkness, there is always light.
I appreciate that my mother, father, doggie and I have survived the fire with minimal physical injury despite the profound psychological and material damages. I know I can never replace the hundreds of sentimental items that I treasured over the years, and I accept this. We are all grateful for the friends, family,
colleagues and even total strangers that have come forward to help us rebuild our lives. We will greatly appreciate any support you can give to us as well, no contribution is too small. Thank you.
