Help My Family Recover From Fire


My name is Kris Boyce I am from Castro Valley CA. On October 9, 2017 around 3:00am I woke up smelling signs of a fire near. I turned on the local news later that morning confirming there were three fires located in the Napa CA area that are currently out of control. The state of California declared a state of emergancy. My cousin Dayna, Spouse Gabe & there son Alexio,who is 6 & there two dogs  just moved to the immediate area so that there son can have every possible advantage to a better life & education. Their family just settled into there place within the past few months ,only to be evacuated last night, as they were in danger of becoming trapped by the fire. Luckily Dayna, Gabe, Alexio and there 2 dogs evacuated safely. They were taken to a safe shelter only to later confirm the news that everything they had worked their whole adult lives for was destroyed in the fire. More information is coming in hourly as the fire is still being battled, however it's been confirmed the fire has taken everything they owned that was on the property. Dayna and Gabe are hard workers and have done everything for the benefit of giving there son the best life they can. Dayna has a backroad in bookkeeping and administration. Gabe is a talented craftsman able to do any construction project that he puts his mind to. Alexio is a little brute of a boy. He loves riding BMX competivily and recently just won a race . I want to help my family in any way that I can. We live in the Bay Area of California and we are 3 generation Californians. The cost of living here is of the highest in the nation, and its hard to make it here even when your willing to work hard. With that said this kind of loss to a blue collar family can be hard if not impossible to come back from without the help and support of family and community. So I as there cousin I am asking YOU to help me raise the money needed to give my family hope and a fighting chance to regain the structure of shelter, food & clothing, needed for a couple to raise a young boy. In addition I believe all tools used in residential construction projects to make a living are needed for Gabe to continue with work. I wish I could give a better estimate of cost to cure this destruction but as of now I can only say they need funds required to regain there life, and everything in between. I hope you are in a position to help a family that truly deserves the compassion and financial help  our surrounding communities are able to offer. Thank you for taking your time and resources to help  me reach my goals to help my loved ones rebuild from this disaster. 

 All donations received will be used for the the following, 

Household furniture, 
Books & toys for Alexio,
Vehicle and/-or repairs, 
Household Items etc,
Living expenses etc,
Tools for work 

With Grace & Love

Kris & Christie Boyce , & Our Entire Family
