RainforestFlora Nursery & Home Fire

My name is Kimberly Isley, I am from Southern California, and my family, along with many other families in Southern California, have been tragically affected in the wildfires. We have spent over 40 years building a nursery and growing irreplaceable plants that can take decades to mature for sale. These plants supported many families as Rainforest Flora employs over 30 people. Our nursery was located at the epicenter of the Lilac fire, on West Lilac Road. The homes on the property, occupied by the caretakers of the nursery, are a complete loss along with greenhouses filled with valuable plants we are trying to salvage. 
    These families have children to provide for and have been left with nothing.
    Please help our families rebuild. I started this campaign to help my family support the caretaker's,  and begin the processof rebuilding their home. Donations from this campaign will go directly towards the caretakers' family and getting them a new home to live in. We appreciate all your help, and send our thoughts and prayers to all victims of the devastating California wildfires.
** Some information on our relationship to the caretakers family—
—1. My dad and I are not related to our caregivers, they are his long time employees and friends.
2. My father will be withdrawing the funds. He is the owner of the property and the employees’ landlord.
3. He will do this in his name to distribute and use the funds raised to best benefit the families getting back on their feet as quickly as possible (getting a new home and giving them direct funds for things lost in the fire).
