Although there are so many affected by the fires and lots of charitable organizations to donate to, I also wanted to create this for Daryl's friends and family to collect donations to help him rebuild his life. He is a veteran, disabled and unemployed (he normally works as a limo driver) so there is no emergency fund he can rely on. He's also a big guy - 6'5" and so he's having a hard time finding clothes that fit him at the shelters. His nearby family (including his mom - my Aunt Mary, her husband Uncle Dick, and his brother Bryan and his wife Cindy) have also either already been evacuated or standing by to hear if they need to leave), so they can't rush to his aid.
Daryl will need money to replace his clothing, furniture, buy food and basic personal items, and later for a security deposit and rent for a new apartment. He has already connected his checking account to this Gofundme campaign, so the money goes directly to him. His bank is the only middle man. Let's send him some love and help!
