Fundraiser Details

Meet Joshua, Jessica, and Matthew Ramsdell. One of the nicest and outgoing families you'll ever meet. Living in northern Vermont, Josh is an EMT and Jess works at an assisted living facility.

They very recently suffered a tragic loss of their home. Their entire house, and all of its contents were lost. Luckily no one was injured in the fire and there was no loss of life.

We are here to help Josh, Jess, and Matthew (and baby Ava who is on the way!) get back on their feet. They are a family that would jump at the opportunity to help a neighbor; So lets do the same and donate to get them back into a home, and back to living life the way we are all meant to. In a safe home, surrounded by the loving thoughts of family and friends.

Hooray!

We hit our minimum goal of $2000 with the support of 42 donations. Thank you all so very much. The outpouring of support has been enormous and wide spread. I am so glad that such a positive reaction has been generated to help make the best of a bad situation.

As stated before, this was our minimum goal, a starting point to get Josh, Jess, and Matthew back on their feet. If you haven't contributed yet, it is not too late! Every dollar helps, every share of this page advances our goals of helping The Ramsdells get back to life and rebuilding.

Thank you all again, and be sure to share our progress with your family and friends. Heck, I bet even your neighbors would love to hear about it. The fundraiser ends on Sunday, so lets keep that number going!

Wow! Look at those donations! Thank you all so much for donating to help Joshua and Jessica get back into the swing of things after the fire.

We are so very close to our minimum goal of $2000. We set that number as a starting point for their recovery after the house fire. If we meet that goal and surpass it, that just means that Josh, Jess, Matthew, and little baby on the way, Ava, will be able to move into a new place that much faster.

Once again thank you all for participating whether you have donated or shared this event. Please continue to share and donate through the end of the fundraiser, slated to end Sunday.

Thank you!

"Thank you so much for everything. I cant believe all the people who have donated. To have strangers donate is unbelievable. It shows there are still some awesome people left in this world."    -Josh Ramsdell

Josh and Jess are overwhelmed with the support from all of you. We are helping give them the financial security to allow them to rebuild faster, for that, you all have our eternal gratitude.

Let's see if we can further raise funds and help out The Ramsdells. 29 supporters so far, will you be number 30? :-)
