Ventura Thomas Fire Victim Support

On Dec 4-5, 2017, the devastating Thomas Fire destroyed roughly 100 homes (1/3 of homes) in our wonderful Ventura neighborhood, and hundreds of others throughout the city. Thankfully no lives were lost in our neighborhoods. What's important is that we made it out and are safe. Many left with not much more than the clothes on their backs. My husband and I were extremely fortunate to have returned to find our home still standing. But it's bittersweet and we cannot be happy while others are suffering. We want to do a small part to help our neighbors in this greatest time of need and offer them gift cards to help get them back on their feet. As we are right before the holidays, we only hope a little extra might make this holiday a little better. We ask that everyone who can, please donate. Even a little will help towards making things a bit better for our neighbors who lost everything. We promise every penny will go directly to helping neighbors in need. Thank you!
