Holy Fire Victim: Robert Ewing

My friend Bob, aka Wild Eagle, 72 years old,  lost his home in Lake Elsinore (El Cariso) and all his belongings on August 9, 2018 in the Holy Fire. The fire swept through the Cleveland National Forest quickly on that day, and he was unable to grab anything except for his vehicle, 11 kittens and his dog.  

El Cariso has been his home for many years, and everything he had is now gone. He needs help to rebuild from the bottom up, and without having insurance, this is going to be a challenge. I want to help my good friend during this difficult time.

My ultimate goal is to help raise enough money for him to be able to get something, whether it be a trailer or mobile home, to live in on his property. Other money raised will be used for furnishings.

Bob has been a hang glider pilot for over 3 decades, and although he hasn't been flying much recently, he continues to be an integral part in the hang gliding community in Lake Elsinore. He continues to spend hours preserving and maintaining the launch, as well as donating time to ensure that hang gliding continues to exist in Lake Elsinore for years to come. 

Bob is now staying with a friend. However, I would like to see him back on his own as soon as possible.
