Help Mai rebuild

Mai Lindquist, a fifty three year old woman, lost her home in the Woolsey fire on November 9th 2018. She grew up in that house and has lived there alone since 1999. Not only did she lose her house, but she lost all her possessions, heirlooms, and family momentos. By taking time to save 3 neighbor’s lives, she escaped the wildfire with her dogs and a small basket of clothing. Despite Mai’s loss, she has been helping people in her community recover during this crisis. Mai’s hope is toward the future and to create a new home where her safe haven once existed. Since the home was not insured, Mai needs help restarting her life. She asks for your help and kindness. Please make Mai’s dream a reality. Thank you.
Namee Bailey, who is Mai’s sister, will now be authorized to accept and withdraw all funds necessary to help Mai obtain a safe and secure place to live.
