Tiny house lost in the Thomas Fire

Hi Friends and Family,
I made this on behalf of my sister, Lauren Crow and her partner, Clara, who has been a beloved part of our family for years. As some of you may know, they spent over a year building their own tiny house in 2016 nestled in the hills of Ojai, CA. It turned out to be a piece of art that was not only a place they called home, but their place of business, and a sanctuary that gave them peace and serenity in every form. They recently started their own natural skincare line, OO AH Alchemy, which they invested their life savings into. Today, the Thomas Fire burned every part of it and all of their belongings and business. Unlike traditional houses, they were unable to have homeowners insurance and will need to rebuild from nothing.

For those of you who don’t know them, they are the kindest, most loving, genuine people you could ever meet and would do absolutely anything they could for anyone. If you are able, please consider making a donation of any amount to help them rebuild their lives. They put so much heart, sweat, and tears into that house and we would love to give them back as much as possible!

Thank you so much, everything counts!
