Jen and Will Ortlinghaus recovery

In early morning hours of October 9th (a mere day ago as of this writing), our friends and collegues, Jen and Will Ortlinghaus, fled their home with their dogs, Simba and Tessie, and escaped what can only be described as a nightmare.  Their home and their entire neighborhood was completely burned down.  With the help of friends they were able to suddenly and immediately evacuate in the middle of the night but literally have nothing with them.  We can only imagine the kind of challenges that lie ahead for Jen and Will as they reorganize their lives. I'm organizing this fundraiser as a friend and colleague and am grateful for any donation. There is no doubt Jen and Will will be deeply grateful too.

 Thank you for any donation.
