The popular high-flyer created a GoFundMe page in order to assist his mother, as well as her boyfriend and his two children, during this difficult time.
Ricochet wrote the following on the solicitation page:
"Monday afternoon I found out that my mom came home from the theatre to find her house engulfed in flames. Luckily my mom, her boyfriend and his two boys are all okay, but devastated from losing all of the memories that were in this house. Not only memories that they have made together, but from me and my brothers childhood, my son growing up and everything in between.
I’ve never done a Gofundme before and wouldn’t be doing this one right now if I didn’t feel it necessary in this crucial situation, but I knew I wanted to do something that could take this horrible negative and possibly turn it into something positive for them. If you are able to donate anything at all it will be greatly appreciated. If you are not able to donate, your love and support will be just as appreciated. This is something I want to do to show my mom that she is not alone in this and that we are all here for them in their time of need.
Thank you all so very much."
Ricochet personally donated $2000 to the GoFundMe, which only had an established "goal" of $1. As of this writing, donations are nearing the $7200 mark.
