Paradise Little League Camp Fire Relief

$4,096 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 33 people in 25 days
On Nov 8, 2018, a terrible wildfire swept through our beautiful Town of Paradise.  As the winds whipped the flames through town, many families had little time to grab anything before they had to evacuate.  In a matter of hours, thousands of homes were lost and over 30, 000 residents were displaced to nearby cities.

The loss is devastating to our town, families and kids.  Most kids did not have time to gather much of anything but especially their favorite baseball and softball equipment.    

Our Paradise baseball/softball fields were damaged in the fire and we are making plans to have our kids play together but just in a nearby town.  We hope to keep the Paradise Little League family together next season.

We are looking for help to put equipment in our kids hands so that they can have a little of their "normal" back as it was before Nov. 8th.   We hope to give them the equipment in December so that they can be ready for the upcoming season.  Any donations would be greatly appreciated.

Just 2 more days until our Paradise Little League Equipment Day! We want to thank all the leagues that sent us equipment for the players. I can't wait to see them and how happy they will be!

Your support is so appreciated and we hope to have a great season.

So...23 days after the fire...sitting at Don's house watching Greys Anatomy with Lily sleeping next to me. Almost like it would have been on the weekend before the fire, all that is missing is my community.

Speaking of community, I had a great meeting today with the fellow board members of Paradise Little League. It started with everyone greeting one another with a hug and a sincere "how are you doing?".

As I looked around the table, I saw all sorts of people from Paradise, working towards a common goal, exchanging ideas and listening....like really listening.

We have a huge challenge ahead of us ... planning for a little league season...making a new normal for our players. But what I saw this morning is a group of people, putting aside the trauma of the last 23 days, working together for the benefit of the kids.

What I saw is the real time building of a community, a rebuilding of a community, closer and stronger than it was before. I'm proud to be part of Paradise Little League. And we will work as hard as we can to make this upcoming season the best we can in our "new normal".

Thank you for all of the support through the past couple of weeks. We have been reaching out to families about the upcoming season and one comment stands out:

Our kids have played for the last 7 seasons. Our response? Let's make it one more year!

Our community was knocked down on Nov. 8th, but as the saying goes...if you build it, they will come.
