hedges family fund help

Calling all people!!!

My friend's house caught fire on Monday night and she has a family of four (husband, herself, and two girls 10 and 15) and two cats who are in need of everyone's help! I know it's a bad time for this to happen to anyone because it's the holidays, so let's make it a little better and a less stressful by donating what we can to help them out.

I have set up a donation button for funds to be donated to the family, as well as a drop off point for all other items needed at 2552 Cedarwood Ave, Lawrence, KS 66046.

We will be taking paypal payments for donations for clothing and shoes (since we don't know exact sizes), food, and hotel stays to Donation Link. Please make sure you click on "gift" so that the fees aren't taken out of the donation made.

Don't have a PayPal account? Use your credit card or bank account (where available). If you follow this link, you can pay via credit card to the left without setting up a paypal account. I will also be putting a donation button on my blog so that you can donate through that as well.

I have informed their relatives to be expecting donations.

I will also be taking donations through the end of the year (12/31) for the following items to be delivered to help them out: non-perishable foods, cash, checks (made out to Paul or Angie Hedges), gift cards, blankets, sheets, beds, furniture, electronics, pillows, utensils, dishes and cups, appliances, men and women's socks, new undergarments (only new), at the following address 2552 Cedarwood Ave, Lawrence, KS.

Please place all items in a plastic bag on the porch before 8pm when you deliver. If you are mailing an item to the address, making a paypal pmt, or delivering goods, please let me know so that I can expect to collect the goods before we deliver everything to the family.

Thank you all for your kindness and support for this family who experienced a tragedy during this holiday season. XOXO

***UPDATE: As requested: Enzi: junior size five pants, small shirts, size 7 1/2 shoes; Rowan: girls size 12 pants, large shirts, size 5 shoes; Paul: 38 by 34 pants, XXL shirts, 13 shoes; Me: size 4 or 6 pants, medium shoes, size 8 shoe

****UPDATE: We did find out that the house will be gutted but we don't have to start all over. So it's great to know that we will eventually be home. Probably in 4 or 5 months. As a side note, I wear 4s or 6s, not an 8. But if you were going to send Angie an 8, that's okay too.

Thanks!~

  6. Hi, this is Theresa Freed with 6News. I was checking to see if Angie or Paul might be available for a quick interview this evening...to talk about the extent of the damage and what you lost and then we would be more than happy to post information about how people can donate.
    You can reach me at 832-6321.
