Help the Valentine's

For those of you who know my parents, you know what truly amazing people they are. They're relentless and enduring, overcoming many hardships, still in search of reaching their dreams, living life to the fullest. Unfortunately, in the early morning hours on Monday, October 9th, they were woken up by a phone call from their neighbor, warning them of the advancing flames. They fled from their home in the dark and in fear of the nearby fire, could only grab a few items. Tubbs, shortly thereafter, took their home and everything in it. 
This loss is tremendous and deeply personal, taking items that are irreplacable. There are no words for the havoc this disaster has inflicted on the people in Sonoma.
My parents are incredibly selfless and not the type to reach out, but on their behalf, Im asking anyone who can, to please donate to this cause. Anything to help them start over and replace any of the things they once had, would be extremely appreciated. Im eternally grateful they walked out with their lives, but want to help them rebuild in any way that I can. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you to everyone who has read this and for contributing. 
Also at this time, in regard for my parents who are still mourning and coming to terms with this devestation, I ask that their privacy be respected. 
All funds and money raised will be redirected to my parents as the beneficiaries
Thank you again.
