Help Sophia and Jerad start over



A principios de diciembre de este año, Sophi nos llamó para contarnos que mientras estaban de viaje en el Sur de Chile junto a la familia de Jerad, un incendio gigante amenazaba con quemar su casa en Ojai, California. Enseguida, todos los que los queremos empezamos a rezar y mandar buenas energías para que milagrosamente eso no pasara... Días después nos llegó la triste noticia de que su casa quedó totalmente destuida por el fuego.

Sophi me dijo... "lo único que nos queda en este momento son las dos maletas que nos trajimos para acá, el resto se quemó todo". Las primeras cosas que nos empezó a nombrar fueron aquellas que no tienen precio, sus tesoros. Después nos empezó a contar que también habían perdido sus cámaras y todo su equipo de trabajo. Como estaban fuera no pudieron evacuar, no pudieron salvar nada... 

Es sorprendente, que dentro de la tragedia, aunque perdieron mucho, ninguno de los dos ha perdido esa buena onda increible que los caracteriza como pareja e individuos. Ambos se han resignado y entendieron rápidamente que lo material no importa, lo que sí importa son los recuerdos. Mientras la gente que uno ama esté bien, el resto se puede sobrellevar. Verlos manejar esta tragedia de esta manera tan sabia, realmente es una fuente de inspiración para todos los que los queremos. 

Aún así, todos, o somos jóvenes o lo hemos sido, y sabemos lo dificil que es empezar la vida, pero pocos son lo que la han tenido que empezar otra vez de zero. Queremos pensar que si un día nos pasa a nosotros, nuestra comunidad de familia y amigos nos van a ayudar... ayudemos a Sophi y Jerad a reconstruir el nido que recién empezaban a formar y a poder volver a comprar sus herramientas de trabajo, para que puedan seguir convirtíendose en las grandes personas que son. 

Porfavor ayuda en cualqueir forma que puedas, ya sea donando o compartiendo esta iniciativa. 


Con amor,

In early December of this year, Sophi called us to tell us that while they were traveling in the South of Chile with Jerad's family, a giant fire threatened to burn down their home in Ojai, California. All of us who love them began to pray and send good vibes so that miraculously this would not happen... Days later we received the sad news that their house was totally destroyed by the flames.

Sophi told me..."The only thing we have left at this moment are the two suitcases that we brought here, the rest burned." The first things she started naming were those that were priceless, their treasures. Then she began to tell us that they had also lost their cameras and all their work equipment. Since they were abroad they couldn't evacuate, they couldn't save anything...

It is surprising, that despite the tragedy, although they lost a lot, neither one of them has lost that incredible good energy that characterizes them both as a couple and as individuals. Both of them resigned themselves and quickly understood that material things don't matter, what matters is memories. As long as the people you love are well, you can cope. To see them handle this tragedy with such wisdom is really an inspiration to all of us who love them.

Still, everyone, either those who are young or those who have been, know how difficult it is to start building your life, but few are the ones who have had to start all over again from zero. We want to think that if one day that happens to us, our community of family and friends will help us... let's help Sophi and Jerad rebuild the nest they were just starting to form and buy back their working gear so they can keep growing towards the amazing people they are becoming.

Please, help in anyway you can, either sharing or donating. 


With Love, 

Philip and Lu
