The Help Mike Fund!

My dear Cousin, Mike Esperance, has lost everything in the Thomas Fires that hit Ventura. Everything he owned was destroyed by the fire. He was lucky enough to save his kitty MoMo, his laptop computer and the clothes on his back.
This fund is created to help Mike get back on his feet, including a deposit towards a place to live, clothing and toiletries, food for himself and his cat, and replacing his work equipment so he can get back to work!
He has been completely selfless during this whole situation and helping other victims as he can, even reuniting lost pets with their owners. He said, “it is my duty as a local Ventura native.”
Any amount towards his fund helps and is greatly appreciated! Mike is also humbling accepting donations via PayPal if you cannot donate via GoFundMe. His Venmo account is @esperance805 if you’d like to donate there as well.
Thank you,
Mike's Cousins Francine Walraven- Hawaii and Kirsten Brizuela-Texas (We love you Mike! So glad you're okay!)
