Paul, Kira and 10 year old Dylan need our help. Their home burned in the fire that engulfed Santa Rosa October 8th. They fled their home with mere moments to spare only because Paul happened to wake up at 4am. There was smoke inside their home. They left so quickly that all they have is their lives and their cats. All else is lost. They saw flames at the end of their street as they fled. Thank goodness they are alive. But friends, they are far from OK. They need us to support them and help them get back to OK. Can you help, please? Please give all that you can. But don't be shy to make a modest donation, they have nothing - so anything you can share is something. For all of you that know Paul "Bean" and Kira, I don't have to tout the contributions they've made to our lives. Music. Dance. Creativity. Perseverance. Love. Commitment. Success. And massive doses of humor and laughter! They are the supreme example of who we should all strive to be. They had made a perfectly comfortable home in Santa Rosa and now it's gone. Both Kira and Bean have dedicated their lives to saving others. It's our turn to save them. Will you please help? Go Fund Me wants me to estimate the cost but I can't do that. They lost everything. Dylan, their 10 year old son has been told their house is gone but doesn't understand why they can't just go back and get their stuff.
The photos are of the remains of their home. If many of us share just a little it will add up and be so graciously and humbly appreciated. If you cannot contribute financially, would you share this link with your contacts or post it to your social media outlets? I don't have much of a social media footprint so if you'd help me spread the word that would be very appreciated.
I prefer not to mention myself but it is required of GoFundMe in order that The Kirks can withdraw your generous donations. My name is Stacy Einsidler I have known Kira for 18 years. All funds raised will be accessible only by Paul and Kira directly through GoFundMe. The funds will go towards rebuilding everything which was lost - starting over.
