Rebuild Thomas Fire Family Home

Hi everyone, I am Brittany Hadley, the neice of a family that has lived in the Ondulando hills of Ventura for 56+ years. On monday night my family was abruptly woken by sirens and loud speakers with the police at their doorstep telling them they had to evacuate as soon as possible. My aunt Diana Lopez (the homeowner and beneficiary of this fundraiser), her son Jason, her sister Cecilia, and brother Frank had to flee with no time to spare. Three generations of memories burnt to the ground that evening: family heirlooms, clothes, furniture, everything! We found out by watching the news seeing an ariel view of their culdesac and noticing only the chimney was left standing. It was beyond devastating to witness. The next day we went to the site to sift through the rubble, we found nothing. My aunt spent her whole life and all she had to make a home for us. All four family members lost everything. Any contribution (no matter how small) is greatly appreciated for basic necessities, toiletries, clothes, and the higher hopes of rebuilding their home. God Bless.
