Gary & Ali Lost Everything to Fire

$47,430 of $50,000 goal

Created November 12, 2018


It breaks my heart to tell tell you this.  Like so many canyon residents, Gary and Allison Richardson had just moments to escape the Woolsey Fire as flames roared down the ridge above their house.  They have now confirmed that everything on their property was totally destroyed by the inferno.  Their guest cottage, the wood & soap shops, and the house Gary started building himself  42 years ago are all gone.

This was not only their home, but their livelihood.  Gary is now retired at age 83.  Ali's soap business and them renting out the cottage and a room in their house were their major sources of income.  It will take months if not years for them to rebuild.  They have lost everything and need our help just to live.  Please donate anything you can!  Amounts large and small will be appreciated.  Their lives have meant so much to so many.  Now is the time for us to lend them a hand.  Please forward this link to anyone who might offer assistance.

With much gratitude,

Steve Barnett
