on behalf of Paul Fisher
Paul Fisher, owner of Fisher Model & Pattern, recently lost his home and livelihood in the devastating fires in California that wiped out his home town of Paradise.

Paul needs our help to recover from this tragedy, and we aim to provide him with as much financial support as we can, while he sits out the insurance claim process and makes decisions on the future of his business, all while having no income.

Paul has been a stalwart of the scale modelling community for decades, and it's now our turn to support him in his time of greatest need.

I'm stoked to report that donations have just reached $US30,000! This is a staggering amount of generosity and support from the modelling community for one of its own, and will go a long way to helping Paul and family through this disaster. You should all be very proud!

We've now raised over $26,000 for Paul and his family! Thanks again to one and all for your unrivalled generosity. Here's the latest update from Paul, as posted on Facebook:

"Well...We are beginning to get settled in to our kids home in Centennial, Colorado.Again, a giant thank you to all of you for your help and support.My Mom is securely settled into a very nice little care home only 8 minutes away so we can see her any time, and here's a picture of what remains of our home of 22 years in Paradise.Going from left to right, you can see the remains of the barn, then the workshop, then the house.So many great memories of friends and family wrapped up here it's impossible to describe except to say we created the home we wished we'd grown up in.Love to all, Paul"

It's with utter astonishment that I'm pleased to share with you the news that we've now raised over $20,000 for Paul and his family! This is double our original goal in only 4 days, and due solely to the amazing generosity of everyone involved. Donations have naturally slowed, but we'll continue to accept them for as long as they still come in.

Thank you all!

So, we've managed to reach $15,000 in donations in around 2 days of fundraising! The level of generosity shown by Paul's fans, friends, followers, and the general scale modelling community has been absolutely astounding, and Paul is incredibly grateful. For those who don't follow Paul on Facebook, here is his message:

"Hello to all our friends and family around the world, Susy and I cannot thank you enough for the incredible generosity you have shown us in out time of need, we are humbled and elevated all at the same time....Can't say yet what comes next, but now that we are safe in Colorado and online again I will try to post regularly.As far as we can tell at this point both our home and the workshop were destroyed by the fire, more info as I get it, but it will be awhile before that Firefly comes out!We love you all, and again, thank you with every wag of our collective tails for all you have done to help!!!!"

Please continue to share the campaign link to anyone you think might be able to help. And a sincere thanks to everyone who has been able to donate so far. You guys rock!
