Sean and Galina Rebuild

My brother Sean and Sister-in-law Galina were devasted by the Northern California fire in Loma Rica. His home is right on Loma Rica Road where the fires originated. Sean was in Utah the night the fire started and my sweet sister-in-law barely eascaped with her life. Sean's neighbor described the scene as a "fire tornado". Everything happened so fast and Galina wasn't able to save anything but herself, their dog Juke, and Sean's ukulele. The photo above was his kitchen and living space. That pile of ash is all that remains. 

He's a farmer by trade and lost his entire crop. His income for the year literally went up in smoke. 

He lost everything he owns in the fire; his home, his clothes, living essentials, 2 trucks, a jeep, a back hoe, and he even lost some of his animals. 

Sean an Galina still aren't able to access their property and start clean up, but Sean feels like the most important need right now is a new truck. He can't begin clean up without a way to haul the remains of his belongings and home away. 

We are setting our goal at $10,000, but the truth is, they need more than that. They are rebuliding from the beginning. 

Please donate to Sean and Galina what you can. Any and all help is deeply needed and will be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you so much for your love and support!
