Kenwood, CA Fire Victim Recovery

$8,244 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 58 people in 15 months
Created October 10, 2017
Like many others, we lost our house and all of our possessions in the devastating fires that have been ravaging Sonoma County over the last 36 hours.

We escaped with the clothes on our backs and our lives. Now, we need help in rebuilding and look to the kindness and generosity of our friends and family as we start down this path.

Thank you all in advance for whatever you can give!

To assure you this is legit, our address was 670 Kenilworth Ave in Kenwood on Geib Ranch. We'd lived there since 2011 and our son is a 6th grade students at Kenwood Elementary. For any good Samaritans who wish to donate but want additional verification, just check out our Facebook profiles and you'll see a plethora images and posts validating this info.

Thank you all for your continued support! We're slowly piecing our lives back together as best we can considering we're couch surfing and bouncing between FEMA hotels.

We believe we've secured a long-term place; now we just need to get in and figure out everything we need to replace.

So, to all of you that have donated through GFM...thank you! For those of you who've donated clothes and other items, thank you too! It all helps as we are essentially rebuilding our lives.

Thank you and have a blessed day!

I haven't updated this is a minute as we've been so busy in the last couple of days meeting with FEMA, The Red Cross, Salvation Army and a plethora of other support and disaster aid resources.

There have been quite a few donations from old friends and their families that I have not yet thanked so I wanted to be sure to take a moment and say thank you.

Things continue to move at a break-neck pace; in example I spent some six and a half hours at the 'one stop shop' disaster center in Santa Rosa today where I met with all the aforementioned groups.

So, to all that have donated in recent days, thank you, thank you, thank! We appreciate your support!

So, again, I want to thank everyone who have donated and continue to support us through this challenging time. I haven't really stopped to breath let alone respond properly to thank those of you who have donated to our rebuilding effort.

So, to everyone, thank you again. We greatly appreciate it!
