Helping Community: The Family of Rey Res

At De-Bug, our most significant moments have been when we suffer losses in our community -- whether it being the transition of loved ones, incarceration, or some other tragedy. But what defines and inspires us is how the community responds and comes together to support each other through such challenging times.

 

On the night of February 26th, Hip Hop artist and community member Rey Resurreccion's family home was lost to a 3 alarm house fire. Within this fire, they lost everything. We are fortunate to say that no lives were taken and that all of Rey's family made it out safe. With that being said, the family has to start over.

There are several fundraising efforts to help Rey's family in this time of need. 

For those who wish to send direct donations to Rey's family, click here to be directed to the donation site.

This Saturday (3/22) Breezy, Cukui, Booger Kids, Sol Republic, and Chuy Gomez have teamed up with San Jose's own Smoke Eaters in downtown (29 S. 3rd Street, San Jose CA 95113) to have a fundraiser event for the family of Rey. Portions of all proceeds from 5pm to midnight go to Rey's family. Below is the flier to the event.

To stay up to date on more fundraising efforts, follow Rey on facebook or twitter.
