Sonoma County Wildfire/Marika Neto

I'm Mike Avellino, I have started this fundraiser for my sister Marikia Neto, brother-in-law Virgilio Neto, my nephew Diangio Neto and my mother Diane Spieth.  They recently (two months ago) bought a home in Windsor, CA, that has been burnt to the ground in the Sonoma County fires currently happening.  They were told to evacuate at 2 am on 9 Oct 17 and by 9 am their home was burnt down.  They have lost everything.  My sister is a RN and school teacher at Windsor High School.  My mother is a middle school math teacher.  My brother-in-law just returned home from farrier school (horse shoeing) and was starting his own business and has lost all his tools in the fire.   Insurance is going to take a long time to help them get back on their feet and in a home.  The funds will be used for clothing, food, shelter, living expenses and new tools to get his business up and going.  They need help now to recover.  Please consider sending some money, so they can rebuild their lives and business.
