Osman's Fire Relief

$171,188 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 9,191 people in 2 months
Created December 5, 2017


Hello Everyone
My good friends William and Chelsea Osman are, for lack of a better word, great people and a couple that was made for each other.  They just began their lives as a married couple a little over a year ago and on a positive journey in their lives by moving into their own studio apartment.

However, their home has been destroyed, along with treasured belongings by the Thomas Fire that is currently engulfing much of Ventura County right.  They are safe and were able to evacuate with a few important belongings, but will have to rebuild their lives and will need your help.  Any funding (no matter how small) would greatly help relieve The Osmans of some of the financial stress this situation has created.

Send them the love, good vibes, prayers, thoughts to them as they deserve all of that and more.

Funds will be used for putting a down payment for a new house,  replace personal belongings, tools, etc.

Thank you very much.  I know they'll be thankful for all of the support they'll get.

Hi everyone! Thank you for the massive outpouring of support you have continued to provide for William and Chelsea. They cannot thank you enough.

Now a message from William:

"We're not really sure how to express our gratitude for the monumental monetary and psychological support you guys have given us the past couple days. All I can say is I'm so freaking relieved that our problems as of now aren't financial. I still have this weird feeling that we'll be heading home after this, but I know that's not true. It doesn't feel real."

"My parents who live across town were evacuated as well, and their house is standing as of now, but the neighborhood I grew up in is absolutely destroyed:
Currently my parents, sister, Chelsea, and I are living in a motor home (parents') with two cats and a dog that won't stop farting. I don't have much of a plan right now other than moving back in with my parents, but their house won't be habitable for several weeks due to potential lead/asbestos contamination, no power/gas, and contaminated tap water."

"So many people have been displaced that the local hotel/rental/housing market is going to be totally, for lack of a better word, constipated. I feel like over-saturated or overwhelmed would have worked, but constipated is what I thought of first. "

- Videos -
"Video-wise there are 4 videos we filmed before the fire; one is already uploaded and ready to post, one is half edited, two I haven't even looked at footage. Continuing with the videos will provide some sense of normalcy, but I'm not sure when we should start posting again. We'll keep you updated."

"P.S. Cameraman John is alive and well."

Thank you all again!

Hi everyone! I was reading through some of the comments and a few of the comments, though kind, were made out to me. I just want to be transparent and state that all of the contributions here will be donated to my friends William and Chelsea Osman to help them rebuild their lives after losing their home. Thank you!

WOW! Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you very much to all the supporters! This has exceeded everyone's expectations! The Osman's are beyond grateful for everybody's generosity during this tough time.

I will be sure to go through all the messages that have been sent to William and Chelsea. Please understand this will take some time.

Thank you again!
