Fire relief for Linds,Jeff & Connor

On October 9th, dear friends of ours lost their home in the Santa Rosa wild fire.  Lindsay, Jeff and their 5 year old son, Connor, evacuated their home in the middle of the night with nothing other than the clothes on their back.  What is estimated to be only 30 minutes later, their home burnt to the ground, destroying all of their belongings.  

Once the shock wears off, they will have an incredibly long road ahead of them to rebuild some resemblance of the life they worked so hard to create. Thankfully they made it to safety, which is absolutely what is most important, but replacing all of their things will be quite costly.   In addition to rebuilding their house, they will need to replace all the basics (beds, pillows, sheets, towels, plates, silverwear, pots and pans, shoes, clothes, etc) and their car. 

Lindsay and Jeff have been part of our Bay Area family for over a decade.  They are two of the kindest people out there. They are generous, welcoming, and thoughtful.  They would be first in line to support us if the situation were reversed.  Whether you know them personally or not, you can imagine the devastation this family is feeling.  Anything you can contribute to help them get back on their feet would be so appreciated.

Below is the current state of their house.
