This past month has been beyond devastating for the sweet town Santa Barbara. First it was the Thomas Fire which became the largest fire in California history, and set the stage for the next catastrophic event.
Now Santa Barbara has been hit hard by the recent storm—17 people (including children) killed, 28 others injured, countless families evacuated, 100 homes destroyed and 300 damaged, and more counting. Massive mudslides and floods poured into residential and commercial areas, streets and highways. Santa Barbara has now turned into what looks like a “World War I battlefield.”
We can reconstruct our precious town, but those who have lost their homes, loved ones and work need the most assistance right now. Please consider making a donation—100% of the funds will be used to help victims and families of the deceased, as they transition back to their lives.
***SPONSOR an individual, couple, or family TODAY and you can give the precious gift of recovery. New families and their stories are added every WEEK, so please check back regularly for UPDATES at the top of this page.
Below are sponsorship options:
Family of 2 $400
Family of 3 $550
Family of 4 $700
Family of 5 $850
Family of 6 $1000
If you choose to donate a smaller amount, we will use the collective funds to support victims in need.
My team and I are working with schools and community organizations to distribute the funds appropriately to those in need. We are also connecting professionals with survivors to offer their services at a discounted rate. These include short-term essentials (housing, meals, medical expenses, toiletries, diapers, clothing, blankets) AND long-term needs to help rebuild their homes and lives (employment assistance, counseling, and financial guidance).
If you are in the SB area and want to be involved hands-on, please contact me so you could help with the execution part of this campaign—putting together gifts, delivering donations and creating rehabilitation programs.
Thank you from the bottom of our heart and on behalf of the Santa Barbara community.
Resident of Santa Barbara
