Rebuild Hella Good Vapors fund

So many of you may not know what has happened until reading a post that led you to this go fund me account. On June 15th shortly after 12:00am a fire was sparked somewhere in the Cahalan Sunrise Plaza,  which lead to a 4 alarm fire and almost 3 hours of firefighting involving 11 firetrucks and over 100 firefighters... If your familiar with the area than you know that the plaza is home to almost 20 business that were lost in the fire. However the one that we are asking for help with here is Hella Good Vapors. Hella good has been serving the San Jose area for 3 years now and has established themselves as one of the premier vape shops in San Jose. I myself have a special connection with Hella Good not only as a fellow small business owner but also as a freind of the shop, employees and the owner...  Many of you know Ryan Flores and for those of you who dont, let me take a minute to tell you about him. Ryan started out as a customer of mine that just like everyone else wanted to quit smoking, and did! Shortly after quitting he had the drive and determination to start his own small business, which he did sucessfully. Ever since his opening day he has had the same drive to get people to quit smoking as he had. However last night we lost what feels like e real close freind, it was a brick and morter location but it was still family! He does have insurance however the company is telling him that he wont be covered for this loss, which happens to be everything that he has built up over the last 3 years. Which has lead me to here!A very good hearted person who has a beautiful family and loving freinds has lost something very near and dear to him last night, his whole business. Everything was destroyed in the fire, so what were doing is trying to help him rebuild his business, once agin from the ground up! We are going to run this for 30 days from today. Thank you all very much for taking the time to read this and for whatever donations you are able to make, even if they are just prayers. One Love
