Thank you for taking the time to read this. My brother in law has had a terrible year, and was delivered a near fatal blow to his business from Hurricane Ian. He moved to Florida in 2020 with almost nothing except a small amount of savings and the clothes on his back. When he arrived he invested and with government help he later purchased a small Russian bakery that has been in Orlando from its original owners and along with his Ukrainian wife they tried their hand at running a small family business. When Russia invaded Ukraine, they were attacked mercilessly by keyboard warriors and their overall positive ratings were affected causing us to have to petition Google to remove them. Earlier this year, a competing store opened nearby causing his business to suffer somewhat, but he soldiered on. Then came Hurricane Ian. The entire plaza he is in was flooded with almost 2 feet of water. All of his freezers, refrigerators, and grocery stock on the bottom shelves of his store were destroyed. There is nothing you can do as you watch helplessly as your entire life savings and two years of work are washed away before your eyes. Normally we would help to keep him afloat but we are unable to provide much more support at present which is why we're turning to the community for help. If you can give, even a small amount, it would be a great blessing for my brother in law and his family, and help him to recover from this most recent, terrible blow. Thank you and God bless you.


Amazing support!

The waters have receded and cleanup has begun.  All of you who are donating to help out my brother in law are amazing!  As the campaign continues I hope more people can help spread the word to keep the support coming in.  We're at just over 1% in just a few days which is incredible, and even if we don't hit the goal every cent will go to helping him offset the cleanup costs and equipment replacement he's faced with.  For the record, my brother in law was initially upset I posted this page because he's a very proud man who never would seek this kind of help on his own.  I love him like he's my very own brother and I want only the best for him and his wife, and I want them to know that they're loved, and blessed, and that there are people out there with means who are willing to help, evif only with just their prayers.  God bless each and every one of you who visited, shared, prayed and donated.  You're truly amazing people with loving hearts!
