David + Roni Wildfire Recovery Fund

$11,150 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 121 people in 5 months
Created December 7, 2017
My siblings and I are sad to report that our parents, David and Veronica James, have lost their home and everything in it in the Ventura wildfire. They lived in the Hawaiian Village apartment complex, which you can see from the photo collapsed completely.

We are so thankful they are alive and unharmed, and have family to stay with. But unfortunately nothing was spared in their home. The family heirlooms and baby books can never be replaced, but they will have to rebuild their lives completely and that is an emotionally and financially tolling process.

They were renting this home and don't have insurance, so all replacement costs will be out of pocket.

If you are able, we ask you to please donate to help them get back on their feet. The funds will be used for immediate needs such as clothing, shoes, a computer and tolietries, and for help down the road: musical equipment (all of dad's was lost), furniture, linens, and necessities to re-establish a new home.

Money will help the most right now, but if you prefer to send something material, please contact us for the address of the family they are staying with.

The funds will be given directly to David and Roni through GoFundMe's beneficiary option, so we will at no point access the money you donate.

This will be a long road for the thousands of victims of this terrible disaster, but we hope with the support of their loved ones we can make this less painful for our parents.

Thank you, -Charli, Cati and Fitz

(We are David and Roni’s children, raising money on their behalf. All funds will go directly to them. We live in Paris, New York and Alaska so we aren't able to be in California with them while they go through this process, but we are so thankful to Rush, Barbara, Jeff and Rosie who are there with them.)Our parents

THANK YOU so much to everyone who donated and/or have sent messages of support.

My siblings and I did not expect this much support— it has been touching, humbling and so helpful in this difficult time for our parents.

I got this message from my mom just a few minutes ago: “The overwhelming outreach has reminded me how much I'm loved and it is keeping me going.”

We can not thank you all enough. I will have more updates in coming days. -Charli
