On Monday May 18th, a young married couple lost everything in a house fire but Celeste Hebert is stepping up to help out and calling on the community to join.
Hebert joined the Morning Show and talked about why she feels such a need to help. "They lost everything. They are a recently married couple and I myself am getting married in a month and I just cant imagine losing it all after just starting your life together."
The set goal is $25,000 but Hebert says anything, every little bit will help. "I just picked a number but I really have no idea. If we could even get half of that, it be amazing. If we can get the community to raise just a little bit, it will help a lot. But, the more the better."
Hebert says it must be almost impossible to deal with losing irreplaceable items that were lost. "Her wedding dress is probably in that house that went up in flames. The photo albums. I'm hoping we can lift their spirits up and help them get through this. My fiance and I went over and talked to Brooke, you can tell that things are extremely hard for her. I mean, they lost everything. It's crazy. She said she appreciates everything and prayers help a lot too. She's putting a lot of trust in God which is helping her get through this."
In these tough times, money may be tight and Hebert understands that, so if possible to donate other things, she says she's willing to facilitate. "If you have clothes or kitchen items or anything you can spare, before bringing to the thrift store, maybe it's something they could use."
If there's any questions about sizes and stuff, Hebert says she's more then willing to talk about what they specifically need and to email email@example.com
