No family members were home at the time of the blaze, but all was lost including the family’s pets.
A GoFundMe account by Krista McKenna took off in impressive fashion, raising $10,005 of a $10,000 goal less than a week after its creation.
“Wow !! On behalf of the Bzdel family, we would like to extend a huge THANK YOU!!!,” McKenna said on the GoFundMe page. “Everyone has been so generous and this will help relieve some of the hardship they will be enduring. Your kindness is extremely appreciated. We will be closing the GoFundMe now and hope that our community can show their support to someone else who is in need. Thank you again.”
Another GoFundMe created by Chris Jackman saw $5,440 raised of a $5,000 goal in the same amount of time.
“We have reached the $5,000 goal in just under week,” Jackman said on GoFundMe. “Thanks very much to those who have made this possible. To see all this support is absolutely amazing, I know the Bzdel family is so grateful for all the help.”
In total, the community of Moose Jaw raised $15,445 in less than a week for the Bzdel family.
Both GoFundMe donation pages are now closed.
