As many of you have doubtless heard, the blogger who runs Orange Jeep Dad suffered a terrible tragedy on Saturday -- their home burned completely to the ground.
By the grace of God they and their pets/animals are safe, but they've lost everything except the clothes on their backs.
Orange Jeep Dad is a hard-working family man with a family of six daughters who has spent the last couple of years striving for greater independence and self-sufficiency. They moved to a more rural area earlier this year, and now to lose everything so unexpectedly is shocking.
Thankfully OJD and his family have kind friends who are taking them in for the moment, and their church is rallying around. But they need help. They pretty much need everything -- storable food, kitchen implements, furniture, anything.
I am appealing to all of you wonderful and generous people to help them in any way you can, either financially or with tangibles of whatever you can spare. Financial donations can be made through PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tangible items can be sent to:
Orange Jeep Dad
2532 N. Fourth St. #230
Flagstaff, Arizona 86004-3712
SurvivalBlog has post up on specifics of what this family needs; please visit the link here. James Rawles is also auctioning a roll of silver American Redoubt coins on eBay, with all gross proceeds to go to OJD.
It's rare that I ask for donations on someone's behalf, but this is a clear case of a family in need. They could also use a lot of prayer.
Thank you all on behalf of the OJD family. Please be generous.
