Solidarity with Ross (post-fire Resilience)

To Ross' dear Friends and Family,

As you might have heard, California is on fire. Woods and structures have been destroyed in the Santa Cruz fires, including the homes of Ross and his land mates in Bonny Doon. His home burned along with almost all his belongings, including his power tools (which he uses for work), sound equipment, instruments, fabulous outfits and all the basic necessities of life. 

Thankfully Ross and his land mates were able to evacuate in time and are temporarily staying at a friend's house. 

We would like to raise $15,000 to help Ross replace some of what he lost, as well as support him with transitioning to his next home.

Ways he has specified we can support:
-Send him sweet notes
-Contribute funds
-Share this fundraiser
-Stay tuned to donate items he needs to replace

Thank you,

Ross’ friends
