Asual Aswad and Michele Lee - Creating Anew

On September 8, 2020, Asual Aswad and Michele Lee lost everything – as did their human and animal neighbors - in the devastating and unprecedented North Complex fire and fire tornado in Berry Creek near Oroville, CA. By “everything” we mean it all — 3 dogs, camera equipment, a life-time’s worth of art, art supplies, fabric from Africa, winter coats and sweaters, hiking boots, household items, and so much more — everything short of their lives, their friendships and family, memories, and their hopes to rebuild their lives.
With that in mind, we are starting a Go Fund Me Campaign for Asual Aswad and Michele Lee with the hopes of raising $50,000 by November 27 to replace Asual’s photography equipment and art supplies and Michele’s books and healing resources so they can begin again. Please help us with any amount you can! All donations will be deeply appreciated. OUT OF THE ASHES RISES THE PHOENIX!
