Thomas Fire Recovery Fund
On Monday December 4th 2017 in Ojai, CA we lost our home and belongings to the Thomas Fire. We had been living in upper Ojai for about 1.7yrs. After a very long week of dealing with this tragedy, we had a chance to do some inventory and realized how much we actually lost and how costly it is to replace everything, including the essentials. We are currently staying with friends back in Lake Tahoe (where we moved to Ojai from) trying to get our life back togehter. This Go Fund Me is to help raise money to get us back on our feet.
We will be using the money to purchase household items that many come to collect over the years, all at once. For example plates , cups , silverware, pots, pans, trashcans, bed, sheets, pillows, blankets, fridge, heathcare items, clothes, shoes, socks, underware..... I think you get the picture. Those are just some of the essentials we lost , the musical instruments, camera equitment , tv, living room furniture, sports equipment, camping gear, and other hobby/leisure items would be nice to replace , but are defintely not top priortiy. Any donations will be welcomed . If you have any of those items we would love to accept them. We also have an amazon wish list with some of those needs. Any donation is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much in advance! Stephanie and Bob
We had a chance to go back to the house for a very short time, not much left. Found a few items in tact but mostly ashes and rubble. We want to look more, get shovels and dig through but after seeing what's left, we are not very hopeful. If we can we might make one more trip, hoping for photos under the mess.
