Help for Antje who lost her home

During the night of October 8, 2017, our dear friend Antje Bojarsky's neighborhood in Santa Rosa was caught in the destructive path of a major fire which was (and still is) ravaging parts of Napa and Sonoma.  Although Antje, her husband Mikko and their pets made it out safely in the middle of the night, their home was completely destroyed, burned to the ground (see photo).

In times of need, the beauty of humanity shines through, and friends step up to help friends.  We are organizing a fundraiser for Antje and Mikko to help them with immediate needs, as the full assessment of damages will take some time to determine.

Please join me in doing what you can to be of service to one of our community's beloved friends and teachers.

** I am a parent of a 3rd grader at the Sebastopol Independent Charter School, where Antje teaches.  This campaign is not affiliated with the school, nor her capacity as a teacher - it is just friends helping out friends in time of need

*** Antje will be given direct access to the funds collected through GoFundMe
