Christie and Mike's Fire Recovery Fund

$10,400 of $10k goal

Raised by 112 people in 40 months
Christie Seay   TALKEETNA, AK

This fund has been set up to help Mike Figley, Christie Seay and their son Toby after their 100% loss  - house fire. The fire destroyed 2 home offices, household appliances and belongings and 2 cars: everything! Sadly, they did not have fire insurance.


Thankfully, they have a yurt on their land that was unharmed which contained some of Christie and Toby's belongings.  So they have some familiar items still in their lives, which is a blessing. 

This fund will help them pay for: vital cleanup of the site (bulldozer, dumpster runs, etc...),replacement of vehicles , clothing, bikes, household items, sewing machine, beds, and building materials.

Any amount you can give will help get this generous family back on its feet.  If you prefer to donate items they will be greatly appreciated, a list has been generated and will be distributed via email and on Facebook.

Christie, Mike and Toby:
We would like to thank every one for their help and support.  Our friends and community are really stepping up for us and we are very fortunate for their generosity. If want send something the old-fashioned way, we're at Box 474.
