Camp Fire Relief

$16,035 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 212 people in 6 months
Created November 10, 2018
Our families all grew up in the Northern California towns of Paradise, Magalia, and surrounding communities.  Those communities have been devastated by the Camp Fire which took everyone by surprise and according to early reports, has displaced tens of thousands of people, and has destroyed 80-90% of the homes and businesses- and many were not fortunate enough to escape leaving at least 9 confirmed dead, and family pets helpless in the blaze.  

All donations to this GoFundMe will go directly to the North Valley Community Foundation and their efforts to helping relief efforts. 

Our family has lost much in the form of property and memories, but we are fortunate to have insurance cover tangible losses, but there are many who are not so lucky, and this campaign is for those people- our friends and neighbors who need it the most.

Thank you for your donation, every little bit helps!

(NOTE:  The video of my father, Gary Burghoff, is placed on this campaign via YouTube link.  We hope it will help reach as many people as possible, but we have no control over any videos that play after it, so please ignore any videos that might roll after his message is finished.  Thank you)

I would like to pass an update on to those of you following this campaign and the stories of those affected by the #CampFire.

With the fire leaving the area of Paradise and Magalia, the time to begin sorting through the devastated area has come. The numbers are staggering. The remains of 63 people have been discovered so far, with much more area to search. Nearly 40,000 people are displaced. Approximately 10,000 structures have been destroyed, including over 7,000 homes. It is almost impossible to comprehend what this looks like until you view the photos from the sky. Every single building as far as the eye can see has been leveled to the ground.

The evacuees are dealing with what could likely be described as the harshest trial of their life. These people are living out of their vehicles and tents in freezing weather, relying heavily on the kindness of strangers to make it through each day.

I want to thank everyone for your support and continued generosity to the people of Butte County. Because of selfless people like you, they will be able to pick themselves up and dust themselves off to start a new life in their “new normal.”

Please, if you have not done so already, share this campaign with your social media circles. If we can continue to raise awareness, we can continue to make a massive difference.
