Bianca's Tubbs Fire Recovery Fund

Friends and family: I'm sure by now you are all aware of the fires that are devastating the region of northern CA . One of my closest friends, Bianca, lives and works in the region.

On Sunday night, she and her family were evacuated from the Fountain Grove area with little more than the clothes on their backs. She's since learned that their house has burned down and the status of the vineyard where she's worked for 5 years is, at this point, unknown.  

I've started this GoFundMe account because I cannot imagine what it must be like to lose all of one's belongings and photos; to not have simple things like toiletries and clothing.   I've set the goal at $3000, which won't replace their priceless things, but can help them with the basics while they recover (Bianca, her parents, and their two pups).

If you would rather assist by donating items, please reach out to me directly and I can give you a mailing address.

My heart goes out to the countless people affected by these fires. I appreciate your kindness and generosity!

Thank you,


GoFundMe has asked that I include the following information within my description:
Who you are and where you’re from: My name is Dani Alvarado, I'm from Flagstaff, AZ
Your relationship or contact to the parties you're raising funds for: Raising funds for Bianca Borbeck and her family.  She and I are close friends who attended NAU together
How the funds will be spent (be specific as possible): Funds will be spent on things like toiletries (toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, body wash), clothes (they were asked to evacuate with little more than the clothes they were wearing), food for their pets (they have two dogs).  There were 3 family members impacted, so $1000 per family member is the goal.
