Help Ioana Rebuild

On Tuesday, December 5th my friend, Ioana Schmidt, lost her home due to the Thomas Fire in Ventura County.

As many of you have heard, the Thomas Fire in Ventura County has destroyed 150 structures and has forced over 50,000 people to evacuate. Ioana is one of the many evacuees who lost her home in the fire.

Having time only to save her beloved dogs and her computer with her photos, she was forced to flee. Everything else was lost.  She is truly starting from scratch.  The picture above is what is left of her home.

Please help us raise funds for her to buy basic necessities like clothes, shoes, toiletries, and pet supplies.

Together, we can help Ioana rebuild and support her in this unimaginable disaster.

We will make sure every penny gets to Ioana to help her get back on her feet. Thank you for your generosity in these trying times.
