Farmers Helping Farmers

$1,839 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 15 people in 14 months
Created October 9, 2017
This fund is being created to provide emergency assistance to Growers who have been affected by the wildfires currently devastating Northern California. This tragedy is still unfolding and as a community we must come together and support each other. Through Facebook and Instagram we will create a network of information as to who needs help and what they need. This is to be a personally attended fund distributed to each individual in need on a first come first serve basis. These beneficiaries are all people I personally know or are known by people I know who have nominated them for assistance. Donations will be delivered directly by me in person when possible or through PayPal after verification of the beneficiaries identity and proof of losses due to the firestorms. We currently have three farmers in need of assistance. Root is from Yuba County where the Lobo fire and Bitney Springs fire took out the power and then caused her to evacuate when she could see flames from her window. She is currently in need of food, gas money, dog food and dog friendly hotel accommodations. She is trying to stay close to her residence in the hopes of going home soon. She still doesn't know if she has a home to go back to. I am waiting to get more info on Allan who lost everything and Sam and Erin who also lost everything. As soon as I get more info on their situations and their most urgent needs we can help them with I will post an update for everyone. Please folks, let's help get Root what she needs and pray she still has a home!!! Go Fund Me wants me to let y'all know more about who I am so you will know this is a legitimate effort to fundraise  for folks who really need it. I am just a gardener who has compassion for others and cannot just watch this tragedy unfold without trying to help. As I see more and more friends sending me stories of friends in dire need of assistance I am filled with an overwhelming need to help make things go right for these people. Go Fund Me thinks y'all might want to know where I'm from. I was born at the top of the Yuba Mountain at the top of the Yuba Pass in a tiny cabin on a property called Origin. I grew up in Marin County and currently reside in Butte County. I am hoping to either purchase goods and deliver them to the people we assist or order goods for them online to be delivered. I hope we can collect enough donations to actually be of real assistance as there are so many people who just lost everything they own including the place they lay their head at night. They feel lost and displaced. They are in shock. They will be despondent. They Need Us. We Must Help Them!!!

Hi folks just a little update for you all. Yesterday we paid a farmers power bill so that her well can continue pumping water to try to save her garden. The garden was still standing but due to mandatory evac she was not able to get in to water and now her garden is in sad shape. We paid her power bill and are getting good and dog food to her today. This is just One farmer and it used up almost Half of what has been donated so far. Farmers are asking for help and there's not enough in the fund to help them all. Please Help. These fires are still burning. More and more people are evacuating. They are broke, scared, hungry and not sure which direction to flee to safety. If you slept in a warm comfy bed last night, if you ate a good meal, if your family is safe then click a couple buttons on your screen, transfer some funds to those who Really need it. Because some day it could be you losing everything and you're gonna want strangers to give a f*ck and help you out. There are Innocent Children and Animals Suffering!!! Let's Help Them All!!!

If ever there was a time to rally together people This Is It!!! The people losing everything are the people who have been fighting and risking imprisonment for Years so that patients can have clean quality medicine. Farmers who have cared for all of us need Our Help Now. Please donate to our fund Farmers Helping Farmers. Even if it's only $1 it will still help!!! #ganjagirlscout #farmershelpingfarmers #redwoodvalleyfire #redwoodcomplexfire #lobofire #bitneyspringsfire #cherokeefire #tubbsfire #laportefire #sodafire #ganjaisthehealingofthenation

Thank you for the shares folks!!! However, So far there has not been a single f*cking donation!!! I have a farmer who had to borrow money just to stay at a hotel tonight who needs immediate assistance. The fire is 1/2 mile from her home and zero percent contained. These donations are not for me! They are for Actual People in Distress Right This Minute!!! Even if it's only $5 please please donate. This is real and people are struggling!!!
