Gibbs Fire Relief Fund

$14,125 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 182 people in 62 months
On Thursday morning January 23rd, a fire started in our friend Gibbs Chapman's building. Thankfully, his girlfriend, their infant son and two dogs were able to escape down a ladder to an adjacent rooftop and were not injured. They lost clothing, baby clothes and gear, personal effects and a computer that Gibbs relies on for work. A lot of his film editing equipment survived, but he has lost his space to work. And the family has lost their home. So we're going to help him by donating to this fund. He's helped so many people with his sound engineering, film editing, equipment repair, and even auto repair over the years. If Gibbs has helped you with a project in the past now is the time to thank him with a contribution to this fund. He's uncomfortable with the idea of asking for help so I'm doing it for him. He's one of the most helpful, unselfish people I know, and I hope we can all do something to help him and his family recover from this tragedy. - Harvey Stafford
