Stacie & Sam lost all in Tubbs Fire

Stacie and her son Sam, lost their home and all of their possessions in the fast-moving Tubbs fire early Monday morning. They were woken by the smell of smoke and this is what they saw out of their window:

This photo was sent to Stacie after the state sent an unmanned aircraft out to record damaged areas. Their home was to the left of the round pond.

Sam is a very sweet 9-year-old boy with Autism who is traumatized and confused and at times breaking down in tears for no apparent reason.  His whole world has been turned upside down.

Stacie has been a Realtor in Sonoma and Marin Counties for many years and has roots in both communities.  She is an incredible woman who, despite the challenges of her day to day life, always has a smile on her face and is willing to help others.  Now it is time to help her.  

I have known Stacie for 17 years and have spent a lot of time with Sam since his birth.  Please consider helping Stacie and Sam rebuild their life by giving what you can.  They are starting from scratch, literally.
