Fire recovery

My name is Shawn Ratliff and I used to live at 26 Oxford ct in Santa Rosa California. On Monday, October 9th at 2 AM we were awoken by sheriffs bullhorns instructing us to immediately evacuate our home. With minutes to prepare, we left with the clothes on our backs, our two young daughters, and a thumb drive of family photographs. We evacuated to our families home in Geyserville where we are threatened yet again by uncontained wildfires. While we await yet another evacuation order we were given the terrible news that our insurance will not cover much of our losses. Any proceeds raised from this campaign will be used to cover our losses not covered by rental insurance. Any funds beyond those losses will be donated to others in the neighborhood.

We are thankful for everyones thoughts and prayers and we greatly appreciate any and all support you can give us during this difficult and stressful time.
