Fundraiser Started for AGE|Knives’ Family After Home Burns Down

By on December 7, 2012 at 12:01 pm

Earlier this week, Ray “Knives” Ruballos’ family was dealt a serious blow after the home his mother and sister live in burnt down. While fortunately no one was hurt, the residence was completely destroyed and his family was unable to recover anything besides their pets before escaping the building. And with no insurance to cover the costs, they’ve been left with nothing but a monumental hill to climb. Knives’ description of the event can be found below.

This passed Tuesday morning my mom was in her home sleeping, slightly sedated after taking her blood pressure medication. She was woken up by the sounds of fire alarms blaring. Her Christmas tree had caught fire from over-heated lights and set the whole living room ablaze. My mom got up, grabbed the dog and my little sister’s hamster and ran out. Only seconds later an explosion went off inside and the roof collapsed. By the time the firefighters came and handled the situation, she had lost everything she and my 9 year old sister own. My mom has no insurance. Any chance of recovering and getting her life back together is going to be an extremely uphill battle. I ask that you donate here to help me help my mom. It will all be greatly appreciated! God bless

In order to help his mother get back on her feet, Knives has set up a donation drive through PayPal and is asking for donations from the community. It’s times like these where we’ve banded together in the past, so if you have anything to give, be sure to follow this link or the one below and provide some help to a community member in need this holiday season.
