On October 9, 2017, author, editor and publisher Michael Bailey and his family lost their home to the horrific wildfires currently raging through California.
While the Bailey family are safe, they escaped with very few belongings, and need help securing food, clothing, and long-term shelter, particularly for the kids.
Michael has given his all to the speculative fiction community over the last decade. Now, it's time for the speculative fiction community to give back.
GoFundMe requires me to give you information about myself, to avoid fraud, so:
1. "Who you are and where you’re from?"
My name is Brian Keene. I'm from Pennsylvania.
2. "Your relationship or contact to the parties you're raising funds for?"
I'm a friend of Michael and Kelly's and a best-selling novelist, comic book writer, and podcaster.
3. "How the funds will be spent (be specific as possible)?"
The family has lost everything. They had 7 minutes to evacuate. The funds will be spent on food, clothing, toiletries, lodging, etc.
4. "Your withdrawal plan to get the funds from the campaign to the ultimate beneficiary/ies?"
Michael has been made the beneficiary of this campaign, so that he can begin withdrawing funds immediately, and begin the long process to recovery.
