Where do you begin when you learn you've lost your home?

I live in West Sonoma County, and over the last three days, I have seen first hand the utter devastation that the California Wildfires have created for our family, and our community. The struggles are many for those who are now faced with the fallout from such a tragic event, and it can seem insurmountable.

The Reece family have worked tirelessly to build their lives and their dreams together. To have their home taken from them so suddenly, and to have suffered so much loss in the wake of this tragedy, is simply unimaginable and heartbreaking.

Andrew & Rachael's home was one of the many homes destroyed by the horrific 'Coffee Park' firestorm that swept through Santa Rosa, CA on 10/08 & 10/09/17. The picture above is what remains of their home today.

This campaign serves to provide a new sense of hope and security for an amazing young family of three, who just settled into their first home with their beautiful daughter, Kendal, only five months old.

This fund is being created to help Andrew & Rachael find their footing again, and to begin the long process of rebuilding their home, their family, their lives, and their future.

My name is Michael Fraher. I am Andrew and Rachael Reece's Brother-in-Law, and I will be the direct contact/liaison for this fund-raising campaign.

For those willing and able to contribute to their cause, we sincerely appreciate you.

All contributions/donations will be tranferred directly to the Reece family.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity.

Just now, I checked in on the Fund to see how things were progressing at the days' end, and to my amazement, we have reached our intended goal of $25k for Andrew & Rachael!

Absolutely incredible!

There simply are no words to describe my gratitude and appreciation to all of you, but I want to thank you for making this Fire Fund a true success. Since the moment we went live a week ago, this campaign has become one collective effort to aide three very special people, in their journey to find their way forward!

Thank you all so much!

-Michael
