Support for Christine & Dawson

My mom and stepdad, Christine and Dawson Church, lost their beautiful home yesterday in the devastating Tubb's fire that continues to ravage Sonoma and Napa counties and that has displaced so many families.  With no warning they had seconds to flee for their lives with only the clothes on their backs. The fire destroyed their office where Dawson operated his business, my mom's entire art business (projects, supplies and curriculum), their Airbnb cottage, and so much more. We are also deeply saddened by the loss of my mom's beautiful and beloved cats, Apple and Pierre. 

They are beginning the process of rebuilding their lives, but having lost so much are in need of a helping hand. You donations will contribute to all of the essential things they need after losing everything (ie. clothing, glasses, toiletries, gas, etc). 

We understand that so many families have been affected by this tragedy and we are thankful for any support you can offer. Thank you so much. 


(Their home was located at 1490 Mark West Springs Road)

UPDATE: We have had so much support for Christine and Dawson in this terrible time that I have decided to increase the goal to $10,000. With this increase they will be able to cover the costs of more than just basic essentials. They will be able to cover the loss of all their businesses including Dawson's office, the air bnb and Christine's art education business (materials, supplies and curriculum). They will also be able to cover some relocation costs as they look for a new home to rent. Thank you all so much for you love and support. We are incredibly grateful for your love and generosity.
