Help the Wilsons rebuild our homes

On Thursday, we got the devastating news that the CZU Lightning Complex Fire burned our houses, our barn, and every other structure on our property to the ground.  We lost the homes of three generations of our family, as well as  the commercial kitchen for our bakery, Buttercup Cakes. While we are so grateful to all be alive and safe, we are grappling with the loss of all of our homes,  our livelihood, our possessions, and four generations worth of memories and history.

My grandfather, Ben Wilson, has always been proud to have lived in the same house his entire life.  This campaign is for him and my grandmother Jan Wilson. They are 89 & 81 years old respectively, and starting over at this age is a devastating thing.
We cannot replace what they lost, but we want to build them a comfortable place that they can call home. Any donation would go a long way to helping my family start over in the place that we love most.
