Michelle & Toms Fire Recovery Acct

On October 9, 2017 my dear friends Michelle and Tom O’Briant lost everything to the horrific fires in Santa Rosa. While I have never personally endured anything close to this, I know others whom have, and I hear that it is devastating beyond ways we can’t even comprehend. Sitting in Chicago I have been trying to find some way, anyway, that I can help. It occurred to me that the expenses will be enormous and insurance checks take awhile to arrive and don’t cover everything. This is my way to help. Please consider contributing to this fund to help them recover as quickly, and financially painlessly, as possible. All of the proceeds will go directly to the O’Briants to use as they wish. I worked with Michelle for years at S2K Graphics and we still remain close today. 

If you know Michelle and Tom, you know what wonderfully giving  and loving people they are. My heart breaks for them, as I know it does for many of you. 

Thank you for considering to donate. Any amount big or small will be greatly appreciated. 

My thoughts and prayers go out to Tom and Michelle and everyone affected by this disaster.
