help Travis K. rebuild after fire

Travis Kennedy was one of many who lost their homes and belongings due to the Thomas Fire....

Please help Travis start to rebuild his life... like others he has a long road to rebuilding normalcy, but also like many others, we are happy that he is alive through this treacherous time...

My name is Katie, and I have had the honor of knowing Travis for close to 10 years now... Travis is a kind, gentle, humble, caring soul. He is a great friend and inspiration to myself and many others. He is an amazingly talented potter, who gives to his community by sharing and teaching his passion. He is well know around Ventura, Ojai, and Santa Barbara as the "date guy" - helping provide SoCal with tasty treats from the desert... he is passionate about living simply and leads an admirable down to earth lifestyle (once nestled in the quiet hills of upper Ojai.)

Travis was unable to return home to gather belongings before the fire took EVERYTHING he's owned and saved... please help him start this new chapter of his life. The money will be directly given to Travis through this platform, and used to replace all the necessities lost, as well as secure a safe home for him and his best dog friend Otto.
