Todd and Dakota live at a camp in the hills above Santa Barbara. The camp was burned on July 8, 2017 (today) along with Todd's house and all of his possessions in the Whittier fire that quickly grew in a matter of hours. . Luckily, they were in town at the movies at the time and are safe. However, because Dakota was home from school for the summer and had brought most of his possessions, they both have nothing but the shirts on their back. Because they were both employed by The Outdoor Camp at Rancho Alegre they are temporarily out of work.
Todd has worked at the camp for 9 nine years and Dakota has worked there for 8 years. Todd is one of the hardest working persons and is an integral part of the camp, tending to repairs, construction, water quality, and anything else that needs done. Dakota has various jobs including trading post salesman, maintenance worker, and archery range manager. Funds received will go towards essential living expenses until they can get back on their feet.
