Show Loretta & Bob our love!

On November 8, 2018 the Camp Fire broke out near Paradise, CA and quickly spread through the community. Loretta & Bob live in neighboring Magalia and were promptly evacuated. A harrowing (almost) 24 hours later, they arrived at Loretta's sister's house after abandoning one car and their trailer. Last night it was confirmed that their beautiful home was gone.

Loretta is my aunt and for those who have never met Loretta, she is one of the most giving, loving, accepting humans I know. Her optimism and strength is inspiring. Together their perspective is amazing and they remain grateful and strong through it all. Let's show up for them and help them as they begin to navigate these difficult and unknown waters. Even a small donation goes a long way! These funds will be used to help provide basic needs as they move forward. Thank you!
