Pelm Family- Tubbs Fire Relief

The Pelm family- Jay, Phae, Lincoln (8) and Mason (6) were evacuated from their home and property near Safari West late Sunday night, when the Tubbs fire ravaged the area faster than anyone could imagine. They escaped unharmed, but their property, home, animals, and all of their belongings were not so lucky. They left in one car with just the clothes on their backs, and have been staying with friends and family in the area. 

Their home was a labor of love- Jay had been working bit by bit on it over the years, and the family loved raising goats and chickens in such a beautiful location. Jay was able to visit the remains of all of their hard work, and there is truly nothing. Cars were melted into puddles of metal, no walls remain.

These fires in Northern California are causing so much trauma and loss- this is an opportunity to help with one of the families affected. 

Anyone who knows the Pelms can attest to how positive, loving, and humble they are. Now is no different. They have been trying to keep positive spirits and laughter in a time of uncertainty and loss. Any small amount will help ease the burden of the long trek they have ahead of them.

Disclosures: This campaign has been approved by both Jay and Phae. 100% of the funds will be transferred to them via method of their choosing. I take full accountability for the funds to be delivered as stated in this campaign. Feel free to check directly with them if you are unsure. Thank you!

GoFundMe is also asking me to provide the following information: My name is Sarah Tendall and I live in Sebastopol, CA. I'm a friend of Phae and Jay, and our oldest sons have been soulmates since kindergarten! The funds raised in this campaign will be delivered via transfer, use of their card, and/or I will name them as beneficiary, whichever they prefer. The funds will be used as they see fit to rebuild after losing their home.
