Help Bongo Love Rebuild His Shop

Hi. My name is Bongo Love from Zimbabwe. I live in Boulder Colorado and am a chainsaw artist. I have a shop off Highway 93 on Boulder/Jeffco County which i have worked very hard building over the last few years. It has been a real blessing and has a beautiful view.
Below is a picture of what it looked like before.
 
 
 
Unfortunately a few days ago, there was horrible winds which cased a devastating fire which destroyed so many homes right before New Years Eve. Luckily, the fire didn't not jump across the highway to the side my shop is at but the wind did destroyed my office (first thing I ever built, had just put in a fire place to keep warm and was painting walls the day before), destroyed a number of my sculptures and more.
 
 
 
There will be some emergency disaster funding available but so many people lost so much more then me, like their homes so any federal
funding would be best used for them.
 
 
 
I do need your help and would be greatful for any help you can give. I am raising money to clean up my shop (which will be a big undertaking but can be done with some help over 5 days, a big dumpster and rental of a bob cat). Additionally, I need a new office space since the one I had was absolutely destroyed sadly. A 20ft metal storage container is my best bet and would not be destroyed again if hurricane like winds hit again.
 
Happy new year and God Bless you!
 
 
Please also know that I set this go fund me up my self and this is the first time I have ever done this. If there are any questions or concerns about legitimacy of this go fund me or other please don't hesitate to text or call me at seven two zero six nine zero nine siz two four or find me on Facebook. Thank you.
 
This is a video my GF took of my shop.
