Fairbanks, AK - On Wednesday, January 29, 2014, at approximately 4 a.m. Alaska Standard Time, my brother, Anthony Boyd, escaped a large fire that claimed his entire apartment complex and displaced more than 50 tenants. He lost EVERYTHING he owned when the fire ripped through and gutted his apartment complex. The sad thing was that it was also his birthday that day.

Anthony is currently without a permanent home and does not have anything he needs to survive properly, especially in the frigid cold weather of Alaska. His monetary resources are extremely limited, and I'm hoping that through this site, you can help me bring some light back into my brother's life.

I, Zachary Cables, on behalf of my brother Anthony, I'm asking people -- my family, friends, and even strangers, to open their hearts and donate anything you can to help him out. There are several methods you can use to help donate:

- PREFERRED METHOD -

1.) Utilize this site to make your donations. You may donate with your credit or debit card. Funds donated through this method will be converted to a bank draft, payable to Anthony.

- Other Methods -

2.) Any checks, money orders, or gift cards can be addressed and mailed to:

Anthony Boyd

c/o Zachary Cables

15411 24th Ave E

Tacoma, WA 98445-4711

Funds and/or Gift Cards raised through this method will be sent to him via United States Postal Service.
