Help Ojai Valley School

The Thomas Fire in Ventura has devastated many people as they lost their homes and belongings in a blink of an eye. Firefighters have been fighting for days without a rest to protect the homes and the lives of those in the area. 

I was a student at Ojai Valley School back in the 90's and lived in this dorm, which burned to the ground yesterday. I, along with everyone that ever lived there are completely heartbroken by this news. 

While it is extremely difficult to find hope and comfort in situations like these, I am thankful to know that all of the students and animals were evacuated safely and the students have gone home for the Holidays.

Now, the school has merely four weeks to rebuild before the students return for the new semester. So, here is a start. I want to do whatever I could to help Ojai Valley School, my home away from home, rebuild. If you are moved to do so, please help by making a donation. Any amount would be much appreciated. 

Thank you so much.
