Ashford Family Fire Storm Relief Fund

$5,940 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 61 people in 43 months
Clay and Lindsey Ashford and their young son Lyric tragically lost their home in the Carlton Complex Firestorm on Thursday July 17th, 2014. Their dream home was under construction being built by hand from irreplaceable materials, recycled from many old homes and interesting places that were collected for years that they were building themselves.

They need money immediately just to survive until they can start again. This is a huge personal loss and as part of the village we can help them survive and move forward.

Clay is also a carpenter and has lost all of his tools which he uses for work. Lindsey is an artist and lost many of many of her materials and projects. Both are currently unemployed due to the catastrophic events that night, as Lindsey's employer's home also was destroyed in the fire. Lyric their son has lost the only home he has known. This is a wonderful amazing family who have lost their dream and really could use a miracle.

Any donations are deeply appreciated.

Thank You.

I continue to be amazed by the outpouring of generosity and love so many people have shown in the past five days. Thank you! I want to let you know that the donation money started hitting my account a few days ago and I priority express mailed Clay and family a check for $2561.00 yesterday. It is guaranteed to arrive directly to them tomorrow. Another $1000+ cleared today and I will send another check to them tomorrow morning. I'll continue to do this each time the funds clear. I spoke to Clay the other night and he is very appreciative, to put it mildly. YOU all made this possible and it's truly a beautiful thing. In the midst of all the devastation and destruction, there is also hope, love and strength. I am proud to be part of such a wonderful community. Love to you all! Tree

Wow! I'm just in awe of the generosity and love! Thank you, everyone, for donating as well as sharing! I am so saddened by the loss caused by these fires. So many good people I've known since childhood are suffering. The Ashford family story is especially heartbreaking, because they lost not only their home, security and lively hood, but also their dream. A dream that was becoming a reality, through hard work, years of planning, and a collection of irreplaceable items. We can and ARE helping! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Much Love to you all!
