I woke up to a text from my mom saying that my brother (Robby Hill) and his girlfriend (Lexi) were safe and at her father's house, but their apartment complex had completely burned down. They had lost almost everything besides the clothes they managed to throw on and Lexi's car.
Robby now has nothing. His apartment, car, clothes, personal belongings, surfboards - everything is gone. I'm setting up this GoFundMe in an attempt to get him to a place where he can start to rebuild what he lost a few nights ago. The apartment that he loved in the city that he loves is gone, and on a teacher's salary it's going to take a long time to get remotely close to where he used to be.
If you can help in any way it would mean the world to me and my family. My brother has always been an active member of his community. He's a beloved Spanish teacher at Carpinteria High School and he's doing everything he can to help others and right now he needs our help.
If you don't have the ability to donate financially at this time, the most important things he needs are shoes (size 10.5), clothes (Men's large shirt/32in waist for pants) and eventually a car (he's borrowing my sister's for the next month).
Here's a link to the news story about his apartment in case anyone's curious.
Thank you. I wish everyone the best.
