My sister's fire relief fund

For the past 10 years, my sister Carina, a public servant working for the city of San Francisco, has built a life in a city she adores with all of her heart.  On Feb 6, a construction crew hired by Verizon dug into a PG&E gas line and caused an explosion, destroying her home. 

She lost all her belongings and was left with just the clothes on her back from going to work that day. Her valuables, treasured souvenirs from adventures, her wardrobe, and a place to call home are all gone. 

I would like to help Carina get back on her feet after this terrible set back as much as possible. She is extremely kind, generous, and deserving of all good things, as I know she would help anyone in the same position.

The money raised would help her secure a new home, replace her clothes, furniture, etc. If you would like to contribute your time in any other way to help, please contact me and I'm happy to put you in touch with her. 

Thank you all so much.
