Emily,Todd& Talia Carey Fire Relief

$10,699 of $11,000 goal

Raised by 64 people in 14 months
Created October 10, 2017
Emily, Todd & Talia purchased their house less than a year ago in the Coffey Subdivision, and just finished moving  a lifetime  of irreplaceable treasures, and belongings. The last couple of years have been rough for them - in a year's time Emily lost her Mom and then her Dad and they were on their way to recovery and enjoying life. 

A knock on the door at 1:30 am on Monday changed their lives again. They were told there was a fire and  to evacuate immediately, no chance to grab anything.

Emily, Todd and Talia left with only "Chops" (stuff animal) and "Blankie" (blanket) .  Minutes later, their house and neighborhood was on the news - the fire had destroyed the neighborhood - no houses remained. 

When the Careys returned to their home, It was gone, all that remained was the foundation and 2 antique ceramic pitchers that belonged to her mother. 

Emily is a florist, Todd works in the pool business. Along with all their personal belongings, their business supplies, laptops, and Johnson's pool and spa truck perished. 10 long years of hard work up in smoke and she must complete the upcoming wedding events already booked. 

The Careys have insurance, but the paperwork takes time and at this point they really need  the essentials that will help them get through this difficult time NOW.

They would never ask for help, but I (her cousin) will on their behalf. They need a little help to get them back on their feet, being self employed - no income is coming in.

Thank you in advance for helping my cousins, and know that her family is doing everything they can to help her and the beautiful Sonoma County we grew up in. 

Kind Regards,
Lynda Tanaka,
(For verification purposes) Cousin of Emily, Todd and Talia Carey
Location: Coffey Subdivision of Santa Rosa, CA 
All funds will be directly deposited to Emily.

A snapshot of Talia enjoying a friend's creek and party. That has got to put a smile on your face -she is so cute and resilient. Have a good day and on behalf of my cousins, thanks for all your help and donations. Kind regards, lynda

Today and tomorrow the Carey's will be allowed to view their property and look for their belongings. Fingers crossed that the rain has washed away enough soot so they can find many treasures. Thank you all for your generous donations - if you haven't heard, my fabulous, Firefighter/Emt cousin has reached out to them and they have a house to call home for a while, in Sebastopol . Thank you again for your donations. We are blessed.

Hi Everyone,
Thank you again for your support!!
The best thing about GoFundme or any of these types of funding, is that it is so simple , no waiting, no additional paperwork or standing in line and deposits directly to the Carey Family. Talia had a chance to get away from the smoke and come play with her cousins, while Emi and Todd are reworking their to do list and hopefully getting some rest. "chin up and get it done!" Thank you again!
