Jake & Rachel Forbis TubbsFire fund

The photo above is what remains of the burnt down home of Jake and Rachel Forbis, in Sonoma County, Cali.
My name is Mia, and I got to know Jake and Rachel when they worked in Taiwan.
Jake, Rachel and their lovely 2 year old Sophia lost their home during the recent Tubbs Fire that raged through Santa Rosa over the weekend of 6-8 October 2017.  Not only did their home burn right to the ground, Rachel's parents's home (which has also been their business for the past 30 years) was also completely destroyed.  Rachel's brother, Scotty Wright's group home was also reduced to ashes.
Our friends literally escaped with their lives and the clothes on their backs, as there was no warning of the approaching fires.
Please help us help them start to rebuild their lives.  Whatever amount you can give, will be deeply appreciated.
