31521612_153229219143596_r.jpegHi everyone Michael here. I am trying to help my buddy Paul Whitfield a 67 year old senior , who was a victim of the huge wind storm in the Okanagan June 24 2018. Paul worked for 40 years but because of his health and age could not begin to go on the roof and do the repairs himself. Paul owns his unit but pays pad rent and also pays utilities monthly which leaves nothing to do repairs. We are asking friends and neighbors for help. If you are wanting to help 2x4, plywood, and black roofing paper and roofing shingles are required.
Friends please help keep the rain and snow from falling into his living room. At this time he is putting buckets out to catch the rain when it comes.
I also want everyone to know my daughter Jessica Batt is helping me with this fund raiser. Jessica has known Paul for most of her life and looks at Paul as a uncle. There was a time when Paul lived with us when i was raising 2 children on my own. He was a great help around the house and nobody in my family wants Paul to have holes in his roof when the weather changes. Thanks Jessica Dad couldn't do this all on his own because of a health issue. Jessica will be the beneficiary and i will be talking regular with Paul and giving you updates.

Please check back as we post more info as the forest fire above him has almost brought him to near mental brake down.
Thank You31521612_1532220937561104_r.jpeg

Thank you Andrew for the work that you did for free. The Okanagan i feel is like one large community. I see how the community has come together in a seniors time of knead.

Thank you to the West Kelowna Capital news they have been awesome thanks Carli Berry. Last but not least a big thank you to The Peachland view for all there help getting the word out. They were onboard from the start. Thanks Dan Walton.

Hello friends a miracle has taken place. A company from Peachland has with donated materials has done the repair on the roof for free. The problem is when ripping down the old sealing they found more damage to the rafters. we are replacing the wet insulation repairing rafters and new vapor barrier and putting up a new sealing. I am hoping this leaves enough money to replace the carpet. Please if anyone is planning a reno or roof replacement give Andrew Gee a chance to give a quote. I am going to post there info.

Hi everyone Michael here i have great news. The GoFundMe group has made a 1000.00$ donation to Pauls fund. I don't have the words in mind to express my gratitude to them. With out there 24/7 support i would not have been able to create the page. so i personally would like to thank them. wow what a big help this is. Also keep a eye on the site as i was able to communicate with Castenet and they are coming out this week to do a update on the damages done by the wind storm. They are going to talk with Paul and help get the word out in another video story. I will try to post there video on the site. And i have no fear the support team at GoFundMe will help me post the video. Friends again the heat is really coming our way so get your favorite friend, find a cool spot and enjoy a cold beverage and stay cool. Thank you to all who have donated we really knead the help.
Bfn
Michael
