Roderick Reynolds, a father of five is trying to find a way to tell is children that the house he has been fixing up is now completely gone…

Reynolds has been working on a house in Detroit to fix it up for the past year. He is an independent contractor and was almost done fixing the house up for his family to call home, after putting in around $50,000 into the house. But now, it’s been burned nearly to the ground and Reynolds doesn’t know how he will come back from this or what he is going to tell his family.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for Reynolds and his family to help them rebuild. With $100,000 as the goal,  the page has already more than doubled–almost tripled–that amount. If you would like to donate too, click here.
