Strangers Come Together to Help Man With Down Syndrome Rebuild His Movie Collection After Fire



When a typical California wildfire destroyed Mark Orsillo’s home and love of his life movie collection, strangers from around the country rallied together on Social Media to make sure that the 34-year-old man with Down Syndrome wouldn’t have to wait to get back what he once had.

Orsillo and his parents only had about 15 to 20 minutes to get out of their Oroville, California home as the fire approached on Saturday night. Danielle Devine, Orsillo’s sister, rushed to help her brother gather his belongings. Devine was able to fill two bags, but she knew she needed to get  a lot of Orsillo’s collection of over 300 movies. With literally no time whatsoever and no room to spare, she was only able to save about 20 DVDs. Her parents, Pastors Steve and Vicki Orsillo, saved what they were able to throw into their car.

Many Many people came to Marks and his familys aid , he has now over 1,000 movies and I want to get more to him…

If you want to help him…
