My aunt and uncle lost everything in a house fire two nights ago. Needless to say, they are devastated. They've lived in that house for about 35 years and lost so many family mementos along with their two cats. All they have left are the clothes on their back. Luckily -- if there is a 'luckily' in this situation -- they are fairly well-off (he's a dentist) and they had insurance. That being said, they are just a mess right now.

I want to send them a care package. I'll be sending it to where he works so he'll be sure to get it. I don't have a whole lot of money, and would rather send them material items than a monetary value. I just have no idea what to extend to them. They live in Canada, and I am in the US.

1. What kinds of things would be appreciated in a care package? Would it be appropriate to buy a few shirts for each of them or necessary essentials?
2. What would not be allowed to send over the border?
3. Have you ever lost everything in a fire?

Thanks so much for your time.
