Starting from scratch post-fire

Hey guys, thanks for visiting my page. If you're here, you know that a few nights ago I lost just about everything I own in a fire. I couldn't believe the outpouring of support from friends and family wanting to help. Most of you know that in the winter I am a snowboard instructor and a raft guide in the summer. The equipment I need to work is expensive and given the fact that I don't have insurance, I don't expect to recover anything I lost. I started this page because of the amount of people asking how they can help. I hate asking for money, but my immediate concern is replacing my rafting and camping gear which is tough to come by as a donation. I estimate my total loss to be around 15 thousand dollars, most of which is irreplaceable: jewelry, computer with all of my pictures, clothes I've held on to for decades. However things like my work gear, furniture, kitchen appliances, gopro, ipod etc can all be replaced with time. I appreciate everyone willing to donate clothes, etc, but if you're looking for another way to contribute, any sort of small monetary donation will help me more than you know. I don't expect much to come of this but figured I'd put it out there, every little bit will help me get back on my feet. Thank you all so much for the love and support :)
