Help for Cathy and Walter

Cathy is the first to help. During the Paradise fires this past month, she’s been taking care of firefighters, first responders and so on. Now, it’s our turn to help Cathy and Walter. Imagine losing home. Home is not just a structural means but a place where friends, neighbors and work are. Clothes to wear, dishes to eat off. Food in the fridge.
Couch surfing day to day and living in your car is not what we want for our friend. Let’s help her get some grounding until she can stand on her own again. And of course Walter! He needs a warm bed to cuddle and a few treats along the way.
All proceeds go directly to Cathy and Walter. Anything left over, will be donated to a charity of Cathy’s choice.
