Mike Turner - Coastal Bee Fire Fund

My Brother Mike Turner is the founder of the Coastal Bee Company. I am sad to say that he has lost everything in the fires devastating Sonoma County.  He not only lost his home, he lost all the equipment for his Bee Business and all the Honey he had collected this season.  His renter's insurance will not come close to cover the loss that he has sustained.  He was awakened in the middle of the night by neighbors and fled his burning neighborhood with only his clothes on his back, flip flops, cats and his wife.  He has lost everything else.

If you have had him come to your house to service a Bee Hive, tasted the honey he collects, or called him when a swarm has invaded your home, you know that he is there for you and he works hard.  Please join us in helping him recover his business, and his life, from this devastation.  

Incredibly we met the goal of $5,000.00.   THANK YOU!  Their needs are great.   Mike and Deborah are overwhelmed. If you ask them how they are doing they would say "Fine".  The reality is that they can use some help. The money raised here will be used to get his life and business back on thier feet.  Let's keep it going and show them how much they are supported.  All I can say is WOW!!!!!!

Thank You

Brooke Halsey
