Help for couple from Paradise, CA

Christina Beardsley and Garrett Heilman are a recently married couple whose home and everything in and around it -- including their three pet cats and car -- were unfortunately lost in the fires that devastated Paradise, CA. As their close friend for several years, I can vouch for Christina and Garrett being some of the kindest, most humble people, and it's a shame to see them have such a rough go at it for as long as they have. The camper RV that was burned down was their first home together and it took almost all they had to acquire. 

While they are grateful they happened to be out of town when the fires struck and managed to avoid harm's way, they are heartbroken by what was taken from them. They've been residing in a motel a few towns outside of Paradise for a couple weeks while they try to get back on their feet and would greatly appreciate anything you could give to help them along. The funds would go towards essential basic items like clothes and toiletries, a laptop for school, a used car, gas to get to friends and family, and a place to stay.
