I'm starting with a modest goal of $50,000 (Update: Thank you!!! We reached our goal of $50,000, and are moving on to $75k. Every dollar helps!), but the damages extend well beyond this number. I've never done a fundraiser like this, but I promise I will do my best to help people in need and communicate openly with the communities affected about how these funds are being dispersed.
I'm told I should add some tidbits about myself, so here we go. I have an extensive history of nonprofit and volunteer work in Butte County as well as Oakland, where I live. I have been interviewed by ABC News and Huffington Post in relation to my work raising money for homeless residents in the Bay Area, and spend a significant amount of my free time working on issues supporting communities in need. I am hopeful that this conveys my commitment to these types of causes and my earnest belief in helping those in need.
