Raised by 503 people in 8 months
Created November 11, 2018
Fundraising Team
on behalf of Michael Plen
Michael Plen, beloved friend and colleague to so many, has lost his home to the Mailibu fire.  He, his wife and son are safe, but his house burned to the ground with everything in it but some clothes, family pictures and hard drives. Plen, Cat and Everette are facing a long road to recover and rebuild. Let's all pitch in to help.

Right now they need help with temporary housing. Down the road there will be rebuilding, all the costs insurance won't cover, and a million little things he and Cat can't yet predict.

It's time to do for Plen the way he has done for all of us, with never-say-die determination, generosity and humor. (Who remembers the Attack Hamster?)

If you want to join our fundraising team or have any ideas to spread the word and raise more money, please reach out. Every dollar and social media post/share makes an important difference.

Thank you!

Michael, Cath & Everette here....2019.
8 weeks ago, The Fire tornado destroyed our home and all we had. We want to thank EVERYONE who contributed and supported us on all levels. We're in Thousand Oaks and rebuilding our future from there.
It's still a long way to get by all the toxicity in Malibu and what the fire & destruction left behind.
SINCERE GRATITUDE AND THANKS TO YOU ALL and special THANKS to Julie, Cory and Jenny who got this started. We are extremely appreciative and grateful. We are deeply thankful to be surrounded by kind people who really care. Our gratitude can't be measured and we will remember forever. THANK YOU and hope your futures are smooth. sincerely. M,C & E

Dear Ones! Plen has been back to his house, which has burned to the ground. He updated his story and shared these pictures - a satellite image and a site photo - and we have updated the campaign page with them.

Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and we can all be thankful for being part of this community of Plen family supporters - for all that we are and have and give. Please continue to share this fundraising campaign by all means possible. An impersonal algorithm can’t replace a human touch.

All blessings, all love - for the holiday and all days,

Julie

Hi all. Michael, Cath & Everette here. We finally got a chance to visit our "home" since the fire on 11/9. This is the sky view and the rubble we found. The fire was a real incineration. We want to thank all of our friends for sending strength, love and support. Still in shock, we are really starting over, as nothing survived the blaze, except an X-Files mug and a Modern Outsider cup.
