On Friday 28th September 2018, a powerful earthquake struck Sulawesi and triggered a tsunami that sent waves of about 3-6 meters high that devastated the small cities of Palu, Donggala and Mamuju. The death toll from the disaster has exceeded 800 and is expected to rise further. The Indonesian government has called for international help as they are struggling to cope with the aftermath of the tragedy that has affected the lives of over 1 million people. The sheer scale of the disaster is overwhelming. The death toll from Sulawesi tsunami is now more than 2200 peoples and increasing Many are still believed to be trapped in the rubble as authorities are scrambling to get food, aid and water to survivors. Many traumatized victims being treated for injuries, sleeping in tents and continued to be shaken by aftershocks. Hungry survivors have been going into unstable shopping centers to take food, clothing, and water.

Medical & Living
By: Jamie Keebler
My name is Jamie I am a single mother of 6 kids. On October 8, 2016 my 17 year old son was badly burned in a gasoline explosion. He received 1 & 2nd  degree burns over 30% of his upper body(belly button up) We were flown from Alaska to Seattle. I flew with him with the cloths on my back and my wallet nothing else. I was 30 weeks pregnant. He under went temp skin graphs on his chest during surgery his lungs collapsed and he was put back on a ventilator. He eventually went through another surgery where they took skin from him thigh .. I spent a month in Seattle with him till I HAD to fly back to Alaska due to being 34 weeks pregnant. He spent the total of 33 days in the ICU. In February of this year we flew back to Seattle for another surgery to remove the scar tissue under his neck so he could lift his chin up without pulling his face down. They were able to do a skin flap on the left side. In November of this year we have to go back to have another skin flap done on the right side. He is the strongest young man I know. He isn’t bothered by his scars and is wanting to speak publicly to young people about the dangers of mixing gas and fire. The amount of debt that we have accumulated is overwhelming and I have found myself broke and on the verge of being homeless. I pride myself in being independent and always helping others in need. Now I find myself asking you all for help to get my family back on our feet and out from under this over whelming debt. Please share our story my hope is to allow this to be seen by as many as possible to help an Alaskan family out. Thank you for your consideration.

Ray's Auto Body Garage
By: Chrissy Engster
Ray Perry has owned and operated his auto body business in McKeesport, PA since 1973.  Ray has been painting, detailing, and performing body work on vehicles over the past four decades.  During this time, he has helped many people over the years without any hesitation.  In doing so, he has helped those individuals in financial hardship, putting their needs before his own.  After the many storms that Pittsburgh has accrued over the past few months including flash flooding and landslides that have left our community in despair, Ray’s garage was no exception. In June of 2018, the storm brought on heavy rains which caused a landslide that impacted the foundation to the rear of the building causing it to collapse.  To give you an idea, the dimension of the impact was approximately 10 feet in height across 40 feet in length.   The landslide knocked out the foundation wall, as seen in the photographs (which can also be viewed in "Updates").  To date, FEMA denied assistance with repairing the damage.   The building is not only his business but also his residency.  His home is now being held up by beams, stilts on concrete blocks, as shown in the photographs.  Ray has been diagnosed with glaucoma and is on disability. For those that know Ray, he is a proud man and would rarely ask for help unless absolutely necessary.  The aftermath has left Ray in dire need of assistance and that is why we need your help.  Your donation will be used to begin the repairs required.  The hillside needs to be excavated to remove the existing dirt that came in from the landslides.  Following removal, he will need to start rebuilding the foundation of his home and business before winter.   We will update you with any changes and cannot thank you enough for your generosity and support.  Ray is appreciative of any donation you can give, no matter how big or small.
