Dear friends, it is with a heavy heart that I share this fundraiser, and yet a hopeful one because i know how powerful community is and how well we all take care of each other.

Last night 12/04/17 Connie and Mike lost their family home in the Thomas fire in Ojai, CA.
They had to emergency evacuate late last night with no time to grab anything other than a small backpack and a change of clothes. They have lost almost all of their possessions, clothes, furniture, family keep sakes etc. 
They have lost their whole home.

After evacuating the went to a friends house and had to evacuate from their this afternoon. They went to another friends house and I just heard word that they are now evacuating for a 3rd time.

During this challenging time they need support to make it through this transition, whilst they try to rebuild their lives, and find a new home.

Connie and Mike are very dear to me, and are truly some of my favorite people in this life. They both have such huge hearts, and spend a lot of their energy and resources helping others in need. It is with this knowledge of them, that I ask you to help them.

I invite you to support them however you can, all donations are appreciated, and every little bit truly does help.

Thankyou for your generosity <3

In love and reciprocity.

P.S - (for legal purposes)
My name is Kelly Gatley, I am from England, currently staying in California. Connie and Mike are long term friends of mine. The money raised in this campaign wil be used to rent them a new home and replace furniture / clothes/ personal belongings lost in the fire.

Hi friends, here is an update on Mike, Connie and Coralyn's home that burned down last week. I drove up and took these photos a couple days ago. Other than a couple cast iron pots buried in the rubble there is very little left as you can see. I was thinking of all of the micro items we have and never think of that will need replacing, tweezers, cleaning products, clothes, shoes everything basically. Although these are small items when you have to replace EVERYTHING it suddenly gets very expensive. Please give what you can to support Mike, Connie and Coralyn getting back on their feet. Right now they are staying with a relative while they work out funds for a new home. Please share this, and donate what you can. Every bit helps.

**UPDATE** So the earliest Mike and Connie can access these funds due to processing times is December 15th. That puts a lot of things on hold.
