Hi friends,
As you may already know, Shawn Smiths’s family home burnt down on Sunday of this week. It was devastating to watch, as his childhood house along with all of their belongings turn to rubble. Him and his family are doing okay and they are working towards rebuilding their lives. They are a strong group of people and are working on staying positive.

Most of Shawn's stuff was in the house other than a few things he keeps in his car and in his garage. Unfortunately, in addition to most of his keepsakes, he lost his four guitars, his computer, his x-box and most of his clothes. His family has insurance but it isn’t looking like they will get enough to pass any along to him to cover the stuff that he has lost.

But there is good news! His BIRTHDAY is coming up and we are hoping to do something really special because we think he really deserves it. We are trying to get together some money to buy him a NEW GUITAR from all of his friends. Losing his guitars has been really hard on him and that would mean the most to replace.

THIS IS TOP SECRET! Shawn would never ask for or accept money from anyone but I think that he deserves a little something nice on his birthday after all that he has lost. PLEASE support him during this difficult time with as much or as little as you are able to contribute.

Also, pass this link along to anyone you may feel is interested. Every little bit helps!
We will put together a nice card with names from everyone who helped.


Rachel and friends :)
