Shawn's Harbin Hot Springs Bench

Hello friends, family and loved ones of Shawn ~

We are raising funds to create a wonderful handcrafted bench for our beloved Shawn Goozh at Harbin Hot Springs in Northern California. 

Harbin was a place that Shawn frequented and - as most beautiful outdoor spaces - he appreciated and found solace in and also helped gather our friends there for many delicious memories. 

Your donation of any amount is greatly appreciated. This will not only support the rebuild of Harbin Hot Springs which burned down in the 2015 valley fires, but will also give us a sweet and beautiful place to visit, commune and honor our dear friend.

"Your generous gift of $3,000 will sponsor a beautiful handcrafted bench with a commemorative fig leaf plaque fashioned here by Lake County artists."

During this tender and hopeful time of Harbin’s reclamation and re-creation, we are deeply grateful for financial support of any amount. All gifts are used to help us continue to rebuild Harbin’s unique facilities, and rehabilitate its precious land, water, and trees.

In recognition of each $3,000 contribution a commemorative redwood bench will be built and named in your honor (or that of whomever you wish)."

It is with unimaginable sadness and disbelief that we continue to grieve and celebrate the life of one of the most precious, loving, unique and amazing souls on this planet. Shawn was a brilliant and bright light and our steadfast community catalyzer. He had the most rare and uncanny sense of humor and was one of the most loyal people you’ll ever meet. The world will never, ever be the same without him.

Shawn - we love you with all our hearts. You were such an amazing friend, brother, son, uncle, cousin, teacher, therapist and so so much more. We will think about you everyday and carry your light forward. Thank you for being our angel now. Blessing you and your family and all the lives you have touched. You are with us ALWAYS.

Shawn passed the morning of August 17th, 2018. He remains in our hearts for all eternity.
