Ventura Wildfire Victims

As many of you know, my hometown of Ventura and surrounding towns of Ojai and Santa Paula have been hit hard by devastating wildfires.  Houses and communities have been destroyed and it will take time before we will be able to assess all of the damage.  I have friends and family who have been displaced and have lost homes and property.

I've teamed up with GoFundMe and come to you, hat in hand, and implore you to come together and support those who have been affected. All funds raised will go to a 501(c)(3) called the Direct Impact Fund and will be distributed to provide relief and financial support to fire victims and charities on the ground doing the most impactful work. I’ll keep you updated on the details as things progress.

Lastly, I'll match up to $50,000, so your donation will go even farther to help. Ventura is my town. My heart. I grew up there nearly my entire life, which means I also grew up in Ojai & Santa Paula. These communities are strong. Ventura is strong. But this devastation is unprecedented, and my people need our help, now more than ever. So c’mon folks. Help me, help you, help them.

Please donate and share this link,, so we can make a difference together.
