Vega Family Fund

I'm TJ and a brother of mine has ended up in a heartbreaking situation. David and I served together in Fox 2/5 from 2006-2009. He is a great guy, father and husband who lost everything during the recent fire in Santa Rosa. He is married to Heather and they have a beautiful baby girl. I was contacted by a friend of Heather's and she mentioned her photography business. I don't know how much of her business was effected by this, but we can all imagine that it has definitely taken it's toll on that as well. They lost their home and just about all of their personnal belongings, aside from what they could quickly get packed before they evacuated. David's spirits are high and he believes God will bring light to this terrible situation. I am just trying to do what I can to help him in his time of need. If you can't donate, I understand. I am just trying to do what I hope someone would do for me. The funds will be spent helping David, his wife Heather and their daughter get back on their feet and replacing part of what was destroyed by the fire. I have set David up as the beneficiary and have given up all control of the funds.
