On Sunday December 3, 2017, around 10:00pm, our family recieved a text from my brother saying that they could see the Thomas Fire in Ventura County, Ca over the hill about 15-20 miles away and they were starting to pack "just in case."
Within hours, my mom, dad, and brother were put under mandatory evacuation. They took what they could, which wasn't much, and left their home as they were instructed to do so. On Monday December 4, 2017, around 6:00 am, my brother sent a photo of our family home still burning to the ground. Within hours, everything was gone.
While the Thomas Fire continued to sweep across Ventura County, causing mass amount of destruction and mandatory evacuations, the reality began to sink in. My family has remained very positive and hopeful in the midst of loosing everything. While my parents are able to claim majority of what they lost through insurance, we are finding that it is very difficult for my brother to claim everything he lost in the fire.
I am setting up this Go Fund Me specifically for my brother, Nathan who could use the support of family, friends, and our community, in rebuilding his life and replacing the basic necessities that we often take for granted each day.
Many have asked me to let them know if there is a tangible way they can help. If you can give any amount, big or small to help my brother Nathan get back on his feet, that would be greatly appreciated. If you can please pass this along to others who are looking for ways to support vicitims of the Southern California fires, please do.
Thank you for taking time to read and thank you for considering supporting my brother as he picks up the pieces of his life and begins to rebuild and start over.
