Fallen Trees Destroyed Jin's House

On 9/26, Several trees fell down the hill above Gastineau Street and functionally totaled Jin Mitchem's house. Luckily no one was injured, but now the unfortunate business of picking up the pieces falls on those unlucky enough to have been affected.

Nobody expects to be at the center of a tragedy, and this could not have happened to a less deserving person. Anyone who has interacted with Jin will attest to his pure spirit, his understated curiosity, and his overwhelming kindness in the face of adversity. If you are able, please return a portion of this kindness with a financial gift.

Jin anticipates facing these costs as he re-builds his house:

Lawyers: 5-10k
Demolition: 20-50k
Re-building House: 100k-150k

We hope to raise enough to allow Jin to begin the demolition process, but any amount helps! Let's show this beautiful soul the power of our community.
