Ellison's Fire Loss Fund

As many of you already know Christopher, Emily, Alexandria and Lily Ellison lost there home in Ventura, CA to the Thomas Fire on the night of Decemeber 4th.  For me, they are my family unit, I love them with all my heart.   Five months ago, the Ellison's purchased their forever home and slowly started to make it their own.  They purchased a new fridge,  a new washer and dryer, 3 pomegranate trees, you know the basics.  Now they find find themselves in the middle of a nightmare.  They made it out of the house with both cars, a laptop, Em's purse, Lily's pink blanket, a jacket and a charger.  That's all!  They now have to figure out what's next while paying a mortgage, bills for appliances that no longer exist, replacing socks, clothes and toothbrushes for the family and finding a place to live while they rebuild.  The list goes on and on.  Christmas is also right around the corner, Christmas presents had already been purchased and are under the tree.  Now they are ashes.  I'm reaching out to family, friends and the amazing military community that has supported them through all their different duty stations to lend a helping hand.    This money will help to soften the blow  of this nightmare.

Thank You for your consideration and Happy Holidays to All!
