Kristen & Bryon Napa Fire Recovery

My name is Lauren and Kristen is a dear friend. I have known her and her fiancé, Bryon for over five years. My friends (Jaime, Katie, Christine, and Jenifier) want to help raise money for both of them following  the Napa Valley fires. We all worked together in NYC and want to help, even if it is from 3,000 miles away. 

Just a few short weeks ago, our friend Kristen had her world turned upside down. The Napa fires changed her life along with the life of her fiancé, Bryon. Both California natives, they have lost everything in the fire. 

We all met Kristen five years ago when she moved to NYC for her job. We all got to know her amazing personality and loving heart through working with her. While, moving to NYC was a lifelong dream, her goal was to move home to California.

Just this past month, she moved back with Bryon to start their new life together in the state that they love.
All of their belongings (family heirlooms, photos, furniture, clothes, bedroom furnishings, and kitchenware) were packed up from their apartment in NYC to a storage unit in Cali as they were getting ready to move in to their new home in Sonoma County. Unfortunately the fires destroyed the storage facility and they lost everything.


On top of all of this, Kristen and Bryon are planning their wedding for June 2018. Expenses for a wedding can be challenging for any couple, but losing everything throws them a curveball they never saw coming. We want to raise money for Kristen and Bryon to not only replace items, but also build for their future. 

The money raised will be put towards wedding costs, as well as replacing the valuables that were lost in the fire. Once the funds are collected, we will give them directly to Kristen and Bryon to help them rebuild their lives. 

We have a lofty goal, but any donation would be helpful!

With love, 
Christine, Jaime, Jennifer, Katie, & Lauren
