Detroit Father Loses Home in Fire; GoFundMe Explodes

Americans show generosity for a man in need.

“Last week, a father of five in Detroit, Michigan, lost the home he had been working on the past few months to a raging house fire. Thirty-two-year-old Rodrick Reynolds, an independent contractor, not only lost the house, but his dog and his work truck. Since the incident, which is currently being investigated by authorities, the American people have come together to raise nearly half a million dollars for the Detroit man.”

“Speaking to a local news station on Thursday about the fire, an emotional Reynolds broke down. ‘I put my family first,’ he said. ‘I put every dollar I got in my house … and there’s nothing left. Like, there’s a lot of stuff that I want, but I prioritize for my family every dollar — every dollar I get I put into that house and I take care of my kids. It’s devastating for me,’ Reynolds added, ‘but I’m a big boy so imma just keep on pushing.’”

“The American people responded swiftly to the gutting story, donating hundreds of thousands of dollars for the father in a matter of hours. As of June 7, the GoFundMe page is over $479,000.”
