My name is Matthew Bustabade and a home fire recently destroyed everything I own. My precious dog Sookie passed away in the fire. I am a single dad from Pollock Pines California. After being divorced for two years now I was able to reestablish my life and find a nice home for myself and my 4 1/2 year old son Kodiak and dog Sookie. While coparenting and raising Kodiak 50% custody I have been working 3 jobs to move better ahead and sustain my household. Unfortunately the fire destroyed everything. No furniture, no clothes, no appliances all the basics and everything else I had are now gone. While I had some renters insurance the losses are greater than I can manage. Your assistance is helping us re-establish a house hold normal enough for me to raise my child, cover Sookie’s final expenses, replace some immediate tools that I need to work, replace clothes and work attire and work shoes “I’m a Journeyman County Worker” standing long physical shifts, This is not going to be easy to overcome but with some help from good people, family and friends,I just may be able to make it. I’m so worried for my son Kodiak that I am humbley asking for help. Even heartfelt prayers for us are a suitable donation from the heart, but if you do have a few spare bucks to donate to us it will help!!! Thank you all and may God bless America and our families!
