New Start for Dolly & Erik

We are devastated that my sister Dolly, Erik, and Bunny lost their home in the Thomas Fire in Ventura, CA. They were able to grab the few things most precious to them-- a camera, a bass guitar, family photos, and some mementos.  They've been resolute in dealing with it all, but the hard reality is that their home is gone and we're asking for your support to help them rebuild their life. 

Anyone who knows Dolly and Erik know how much they LOVE Ventura and loved their bungalow on the hill. We hope we can help get them back on their feet and call Ventura home once again. 

Funds for this fundraiser will be used to help them put a deposit down on a new apartment, buy furniture, clothes, housewares/household items, appliances, food, toiletries, dog food/supplies for Bunny, etc... for essentially everything since they'll be starting with nothing.
