My wife called me today and told me her good friend while growing up, house is gone. There was a fire last night at 3:30am in Bolton, Ontario.

Our friend was lucky to get her and kids out of the house. 6 houses were on fire hers and the neighbours were burnt right too the ground.

I feel really bad for the two kids as they lost everything which includes there pet hamster.

They just moved into this house as the parents just separated and now a fire takes everything they own.

I want to do some sort of fund raiser to get them some new toys and electronics they lost in the fire.

Please let me know if you have some suggestions or want to help out.

Thank You and there is a someone looking out for them as all the familys got out alive last night.


Evan

I will make a list of things I know they had that I would like to get replaced for them

For the Boy
Xbox 360 w/Kinect and some games.
Sony PSP or Sony Vita

For the Girl
Bratz or Barbie Dolls
Nintendo DS
Build a Bears

Used games for these systems are ok too as I gave him games before and will give him some more that I don't play.


Please talk to your sponsors or if you can talk to the track and maybe they can help out as well. Thanks in advance.

I'm shocked. 160 views and not one email or pm to me that someone wants to help out.

2 kids that have been through a lot this year before the fire and then to move in to a new home and have it burnt to the ground and loose everything they had.

Insurance will pay for the house and some of the content I just want to put a smile on these two kids faces as I can't imagine how tuff this is for them. They will be out of a house for months.

I'm giving what ever I can and will be buying the biy a new xbox 360 and buying him some games and also giving him some of my used games. My daughter is also giving some of here build a bears to the girl.

I will also be selling my CRO Decals and giving all the money collected to the kids.

Please give what you can.

Thanks

We are almost there. We need to raise another 400.00 to 600.00

I know we can do it. I'm taking used video games for the xbox 360.

I hope by the end of next month to be able to buy all the things for the kids.

Thanks to everyone that has given.

My wife spoke to her friend since the fire. They are doing OK and will be moving into a temp apt as it will take 8 months till they will get their home back.

Here is how it's looking for donations.

member  CRO member has matched the 200.0 by Dryco Building Supplies. So we now have 400.00 + 200.00 from me.

You can still give it doesn't matter what you give. They may have a place they can stay but the two kids got nothing to play with and I know how much the boy loved playing his xbox 360 and I heard from the mother that the daughter also started playing Skylanders on the xbox 360.

If I recall the figures that go on the Skylander base are like 9.99 each. Used games are also welcome.

Thanks again for your support.

Wow we have reached our goal we have had some people give so we were at 400 + 550 today and my 200 = 1150.00

Thanks for your support I'm so excited I can wait to buy these electronics and toys for them.

Thanks again.

I was so excited last night when I went and got the community newspaper to see the Future Shop Flyer.

Great deals on the Xbox 360 with Kinects and they also came with games and one of them was the one I was replacing.

So this saves 60.00 + taxes so I can buy them more.

I put a call in to the mother today to get back to me with some things I can get them, as I want to replace the girls communion build a bear that my daughter just gave her for her communion, which wasn't that long ago.

I'm so glad for the support that has been given here.

Here is a break down of what was donated.

200.00 CRO Member + 200 from their sponsor = 400.00
500.00 from a CRO Member
50.00 from a CRO Member
200.00 from me

Total 1150.00

I also have some Build a Bears my daughter is giving and I'm giving some Xbox 360 games as well.

They moved into a new place and will be there for 8 months till they place is rebuild their home.

I don't think I will replace the Wii as not sure if they played that anymore but the mother can tell me that. I know the DS & PSP was played a lot so I can replace them and buy them some games.

I'm still taking in used Xbox 360 games if you have some lying around that are not played and you want to make some kids happy PM me and I can give you my address to send them to.

Thank You again for all your support.

Just got back from buying some stuff.

The Xbox 360 Starwars Edition with Kinects Starwars is a cool looking system. Got the Modern Warfare 2 & 3
Also picked up Just Dance 3 & Wipeout for the Kinects and Skylanders for the Xbox 360.

Total Spent $632.75 So this is what you get for 6 games & a system these days.


Next Trip is to Build A Bear. My daughter and the girl are going to spend some time there and then it's of to Toys R Us to buy some dolls and some handheld electronics.

I spoke to their mother today and she was in tears couldn't thank me enough and I told her it wasn't only me it was with great support from our racing community.

Thanks Again.

We have another 250.00 given by a cro member. Please pm me if you gavce and I can put your name instead of saying a CRO Member.

Here is the break down to date.

CRO Member 200.00 Members Sponsor Donated 200.00 = 400.00
CRO Member 250.00
CRO Member 50.00
One Track  500.00
Me            200.00+

Amount $1400.00

This is just great keep it coming.

I was shocked to hear from the mother that friends are lending hand held electronics for the kids to use on the long travel they have to their temp home. I will be fixing these and giving them new ones.

I'm thinking if I can raise enough I will try and get them a weekend trip to great wolf lodge as I know the kids love it there as we have went a couple of times with her and the two kids for birthdays.

I never expected this much support but I should have as I know we might not all agree on the same things but we are a racing community and we support each other.

Thank You

Forgot to mention in my messages the ages of the kids. The Girl just turned 8 and the Boys 10.

To young to have to go back and forth between two parents and then loose your home and everything you own in a house fire.

I didn't know till last night that they are very very lucky to be a live, as 3 minutes after they left the house the roof fell in to the second floor were the bedrooms are.

She told me lucky the kids fell asleep in her room that night, as the flames were up to her daughters bedroom window.

I am so freaked out about it I went and made sure all the smoke detectors in the house work and we have always had a safety ladder under our bed just in case we had to go out the window.

I'm also making sure I have all my important pictures and storing stuff on media cards and putting them in my fire proof safe.

Never thought about these things till it happened to someone we know. Family and Friends will go through the photos they have but you can never get them all back.

My wife and daughter went out and bought Barbie Dolls and Clothing for the girl today and also bought both kids blankets. A Hello Kitty for the girl and a Mario Brothers for the boy.

My daughter still has no idea what happened but we will tell her next weekend when they go to build a bear to buyer a bear and some clothing for the girl.

Spent over 792.75 to date.  I will be heading out to buy some more electronics later this week an Ipod Touch for the girl and a Sony Vista or PSP hand held(Not sure which one yet) for the boy.

The last trip will be to Build A Bear. My closest is getting full like it's Chrismas time. I can't wait to see the look on their faces.

Thanks again everyone that has given. It's going to mean the world to these kids to have things they once owned before the fire.
