Hi all, my sister Lindsay and her family have been victims of the Santa Rosa Fires. 

Julian, Lindsay, Amoreena and Bill (their dog) were evacuated early in the morning of October 9, 2017 as the Tubbs Fire came raging through their neighborhood in Santa Rosa.  They were able to get the dog, their phones and find safety with a local friend.   We are beyond grateful they are safe.

We learned October 10th, EVERYTHING IS GONE.  There is nothing left of their home or their neighborhood.  They are swimming in a sea of uncertaintly and realizing they need funds to rebuild.

Theses funds will be uesd to find a new home, get basic necessities and costs associated with the now new-normal of living with so much loss.  

Please reach deep into your hearts and what you can of your pockets to consider a  donation towards their fund to rebuild their lives.   

I will be coordinating this fundraising with them and make sure it is all securely transferred to them - the sooner the better since expenses will start coming in immediately for housing, clothing, etc.

We are very grateful for anything you can give.  Please reach out to me directly with any questions.  We will update you again as we learn more.

Family & Friends, Thank you ALL from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity and well wishes. Each of you will be thanked individually when the ashes settle. I wanted to provide an update from my visit to Santa Rosa this weekend. Linds, Julian, Amoreena and Bill are fortunate to have a tiny room (i.e. no room for your donations, yet) to stay in downtown at a friends’. They are dealing with all of the logistics – insurance, passports, replacing necessary goods, etc. - taking it one day at a time. We returned to the property and there is not much to be salvaged (see pictures). The community is decimated and the visit reminded Lindsay just how lucky they were that they got out at the exact moment they did. That gratitude, your love and their courage and hope will carry them through. Since so many are affected, there are lots of support in their immediate community which they are tapping into on so many levels. School starts back up on Friday (10/27), which will add some routine back in, too. Please continue to spread the word as you see fit and send love and light.

Thank you all for your support. We are all extremely grateful and blown away. To that point, the theme of the last few days is OVERWHELMED. Not much has changed: Linds, Julian, Amoreena and Bill are safe at a friends in downtown Santa Rosa. They are collecting necessities, connecting with community, dealing with the logistics you never want to have to do and determine next steps. Thanks to each of you from the bottom of our hearts. We will update you when we know more . ❤️
