For those that do not already know, Darrin B. and his other half Lexi, basically lost everything in an apartment fire. Darrin is a long time chaser and friend of mine and could really use some help.
Below is a post that Dick McGowen (Darrin's chase partner) recently posted on StormTrack.
ANY TYPE OF SUPPORT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED
"As some of you already know, yesterday morning, Darin Brunin and his girlfriend Alexis Sullivan, were woken up to a fire that was triggered by lightning in Lawrence, Kansas, which consumed the top apartments where they lived and left their apartment inhabitable. Fortunately, two good samaritans rang all of the resident's door bells in the building, giving them all enough time to escape, unharmed. Here is a link to the story. According to the fire department, they have lost pretty much everything and unfortunately didn't have any insurance. They both have received support from the Red Cross and have been temporarily moved to another apartment, but still lack a lot of essential goods for their new home (including clothes) . It is to my understanding, that they will not be able to return to the apartment to see what's left/salvageable for another week, until a structural engineer evaluates the scene. Unknown to them, I am asking anyone who wishes to contribute to their devastating loss, to send funds to my paypal address: email@example.com You may also email myself at the same address to give Darin and Lexi any support or encouragement, and I will pass it along to them. If you wish to donate anything else, please PM me or email me and I will send you an address to where you can send something.If you can not do this, I fully understand (as would Darin and Lexi). Thank you so much to everyone who have already given their sympathies to Darin and Lexi; they are both thankful for all of those who have been so kind to them and have given them the support they need.Dick "
