Teri and Mike's Fire Recovery

Teri, Mike, and Sean O'Donnell lost their home in the horrific fire that devastated Santa Rosa, and other communities in  northern California this week. They  are currently staying with friends and happy to be alive, but they were evacuated in the middle of the night and lost everything in the fire. I am setting up this Go Fund Me account to help them get back on their feet. It will be a long road to recovery, as the entire neighborhood was leveled.

If you know Teri, you know that she will be out doing everything she can to help her neighbors recover, too. She is a phenomenal Biology teacher at Maria Carrillo High School where she will be caring for the many students in her community who have also been touched by this disaster. Teri is also a facilitator for the Center for Courage & Renewal, and a co-facilitator for the current Courage to Teach seasonal retreat series sponsored by Dominican University of California, of which she is also an alum.   

Please consider giving 10, 50, 100 dollars - whatever you can afford to help Teri and Mike rebuild their lives and continue to support their community. 

Both immediate funds to help offset emergency costs, as well as funds to ease the burden of rebuilding their home are deeply appreciated. All donations will go directly to Teri, minus gofundme's fees.

With gratitude from a kindred Californian and companion in Courage,
