Rise Up From the Ashes

Our dear friend, Bridget Reynolds, has been a long time Rogue Valley resident and artist. Like so many people right now, she sadly lost her home in Talent, Oregon and all of her belongings and art work in the Glendower/Almeda Drive Fire on September 8, 2020. This Buddha statue was in her backyard and the only thing remaining.  She is going to have to start over from scratch: finding housing, getting clothes and toiletries, basic household items, as well as replacing her art supplies so she can continue to paint and create. She fled with the clothes she was wearing and a few personal items she grabbed when she left her home. She can use all the help she can get right now, please donate what you can.

This campaign is organized by her friend, Kim Whalley, and we are all devastated for the losses Bridget, and many others in Southern Oregon, have suffered. She has selflessly volunteered for hospice, end of life care for many many years and could really use the community's support to help her navigate the next steps to rebuild. 

Funds raised here will be used only by Bridget to secure new housing, replace furniture, personal household goods, new clothing, toiletries, food and to get a paintbrush back in her hand.
