saveddvdsLast month, a raging wildfire in Oroville, CA had residents scrambling to evacuate their homes. One couple, Steve and Vicki Orsillo, had about 20 minutes to do that. They grabbed the things important to them, like photographs, documents and a small suitcase full of clothes. But Mark Orsillo, their 34-year-old son with Down syndrome, was only concerned about saving one thing: his movie collection. He had over 300 movies on DVD, but they were only able to save about 20. When Mark found out that the wildfires destroyed their house and everything in it, he was devastated. So, the family went to Facebook, asking friends and family members if they would consider donating a movie or two. Within hours, the post went viral with more than 1,300 shares and 200 comments. Twenty-four hours later, Mark had received about 400 videos! But the generosity doesn't end there. Dozens of people have also chipped in, raising $10,000 to help the family rebuild their house. See the rest of the story and pictures.
