Cali Lost Everything in Fire

Donation protected
My dear friend Cali Wood was working an overnight shift at Shepherd's of Good Hope homeless shelter in Ottawa when she learned from a neighbour that her apartment was engulfed in flames. Luckily her cat was rescued (suffering from smoke inhalation), but she has lost absolutely everything.

I'm starting this GoFundMe campaign in hopes that collectively we can help Cali get back on her feet.

Unfortunately Cali did not have tenant insurance. She has lost all of her clothing, food, furnishings, electronics, sentimental items, etc. She is also an incredible artist and has lost all of her art and art supplies.

Let's help Cali obtain money for first and last month's rent at a new place, clothing, furniture, food, and other basic needs supplies.

Cali is someone works hard everyday to help those who are homeless and in need - now it's time for us to help her! Any contribution will be greatly appreciated.

Every dollar will help!

Thank you for your support in this scary time for Cali.
