Rebuild Chico's Shop

Our dear friend, cabinet maker, furniture maker, Francisco Mira ("Chico") returned to his cabinet shop last Wednesday afternoon to discover the entire shop had burned to the ground.  Everything was lost, his equipment, tools, works in progress, everything. 
Unfortunately, he had no renter's insurance.  

Chico needs our help to start to rebuild.  He will need to lease a new space, and start to replace the destroyed equipment and tools, and rebuild works that were in progress.

We all know how talented and special Chico is and how devoted he is to all of us.  

Roughly, he needs $4,000 for three months rent in advance to lease a new space.  He needs about $3,000 to replace destroyed tools and equipment.  Lastly, he needs $5,000 to replace materials for jobs in progress.  

Anything you can donate to help Chico rebuild his business would be greatly appreciated.
