Astonishing Kindness After Fire Leaves Single Mom of 3 Homeless

Diane McLean’s life was turned upside down by the sudden explosion and fire that destroyed three buildings in New York City’s East Village neighborhood Thursday afternoon, killing 2, injuring 22 others, and leaving scores homeless.

But thanks to donations from loved ones and strangers – which a friend declares “astonishing” on McLean’s GoFundMe page – the family has raised $61,000 of the $200,000 they’re hoping to secure to rebuild in just three days.
