Help rebuild a lifetime of passion

Dear Friends,
I am appealing to you to help support a friend who lost her entire home and possessions to the recent wild fires in California.
She has been giving and serving generously all her life, sharing her passion for creatively presented, gorgeous healthy food as a caterer. If that rings a bell, yes, it's about Isa, our wonderful chef at the breathwork retreat at Stewart Mineral Springs.
I had the privilege of seeing her home paradise in Sonoma valley, and experiencing more of her selfless devotion to her community before the fire. Now the physical side of that passionate life is almost completely gone. Her home, her beloved kitchen, her stock of catering material, her personal memorabilia.
Money cannot bring that back, but it can help her rebuild her life and make a new start. Please donate, help with a little, or with a bit more, whatever you can afford!
Making a donation with a credit or debit card will take only a couple of clicks, and the money goes solely to Isa's bank account.
Your generosity is much appreciated. And let's pray for her and all those affected by the fires!
