Help Meri Walker Rebuild After Devastating Fire

Meri Walker (aka the iPhoneArtGirl) lost her home and all her belongings in the fire that ravaged Talent, Oregon on September 8, 2020 - an unimaginable loss. Since the last update to this GoFundMe almost exactly one year ago in August 2021, Meri has traveled to the East Coast and back to Oregon with quite a few adventures as well as significant health challenges along the way. If you are not friends with Meri on FB or Instagram, you can follow her at or her tumbler blog at to learn more about how she has been managing since the fire in 2020 that turned her world upside down and inside out.

She is currently back in Oregon living in her RV and dealing with the excruciating heatwave with fragile air conditioning and mechanical problems. She could use help getting a new inverter so she can access her solar panels to help alleviate some of the stress on the mechanical system of her RV as well as help with other needs that have arisen. We are not far away from the original goal set for this GoFund Me. Let's try to get there!

See the latest update for Meri's most recent post on her blog, describing her current circumstances.
