Supplies for North Bay Fire Victims

$2,665 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 56 people in 12 months
Followers, friends, family & fellow wine lovers,

As most of you are aware, this week the North Bay Area, specifically Sonoma and Napa County, has been hit with a number of raging wildfires. So far, these fires have taken out over 2,000 homes and businesses, several wineries, and have forced thousands of people to evacuate with nothing but the clothes on their back. 

Because all of us putting together this fundraiser (names below) have deep ties to this area, some personal and professional, it's very important to us to do what we can to help these people. Because though we know it as "wine country", it is first and foremost a home to thousands of civilians. 

We've decided to combine forces to fundraise for supplies that several of the local shelters need. People are continuing to evacuate and these shelters will continue to need supplies as more demand rolls through. Every penny donated to this GoFundMe will be used to purchase some of the necessary items these shelters need. This includes:

- baby food
- water
- blankets
- pillows
- diapers (adult & child)
- tolietries 
- pet food
- socks, underwear, etc.
- toliet paper
- bedding
- boxes
- tents
- and much, much more.

Hopefully, we'll be able to hit our goal by Saturday, so goods can be purchased by local bloggers and delivered to shelters that need it within the next few days. We truly appreciate every dollar you're willing to give to provide for those in need. It will be very trying times for wine country in upcoming months, but the kindness of strangers has a way of making things a little brighter. 

We'll be posting updates from the fundraiser on our social media pages, so be sure to be following the names below for more info. Thanks!

Cheers,

My Pour Decisions, Chel Loves Wine, Bri's Glass of Wine, Pinkies Up Blog, Syrah Queen, Hillary Zio, Samantha Sommelier, Napa Food & Vine, Sip & Swirl, Wine (blog) & many, many more.

UPDATE required by GoFundMe:

- We are related to the parties we're helping in several ways. Many bloggers are from the Bay Area, specifically the North Bay, and we work in the wine industry, which is taking a huge hit from these disasters. Many of our friends and family have lost everything.

- I (Hannah Perkins @ My Pour Decisions) will be withdrawing the funds and using them to purchase supplies for evacuees shelters. This will be done on Sunday night, and supplies will be delivered throughout the week, as the fires are expected to carry on.

Hi all,

Thank you so much to those who donated! We've officially submitted the donation to the North Bay Fire Relief, which goes 100% towards supplies for the victims of the fire!

We decided to do it this way, because shelters were so overwhelmed with tangible items, that they really needed monetary donations. We're so thankful for all the money we raised and are so happy that it will be going back to a community in need!

If you're interested in continuing the donation efforts, there are a few ways to do so- you can visit Redwood Credit Union and donate there (which is where the relief fund is located), or you can VISIT THE NORTH BAY! These places run off tourism and really need your business!

Again, thank you so much for your donation and cheers to you all!
