Please Help Michael Bessette

He is a kind, honest soul. A single father that has been trying to rebuild his life and provide for his beloved daughter.

Today both his daughter and himself suffered great loss as their home was one of the first to be consumed by the devastating fire that took out much of Santa Rosa. They only had seconds to gather a bag of clothes and evacuate their home.

Mike is our new employee whom we are so grateful for. Not only has he joined our team, but has become our friend. His daughter, Cali, and our daughter, Shelby, have become fast friends and enjoy doing gymnastics together.

With that said, due to recent financial burdens, he had to cancel his rental insurance policy in order to keep his auto insurance. So at this moment he has no ability to recover his massive losses.

Both himself and his daughter have only minimal clothing, they lost everything and are just devastated. He is truly thankful that they are safe and healthy.

Please help them raise money so that he can go buy the essentials for themselves; clothing, bedding, beds, toiletries and etc. Any size of donation helps and if you have clothing, blankets, pillows & etc you can donate directly that will be amazing too he is a size XXL & she's 7 yrs old approximately kid size medium 8-10, please contact me.

God bless!
