Support for Christine & Dawson

$13,653 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 126 people in 7 months
Created October 10, 2017

My mom and stepdad, Christine and Dawson Church, lost their beautiful home yesterday in the devastating Tubb's fire that continues to ravage Sonoma and Napa counties and that has displaced so many families.  With no warning they had seconds to flee for their lives with only the clothes on their backs. The fire destroyed their office where Dawson operated his business, my mom's entire art business (projects, supplies and curriculum), their Airbnb cottage, and so much more. We are also deeply saddened by the loss of my mom's beautiful and beloved cats, Apple and Pierre. 

They are beginning the process of rebuilding their lives, but having lost so much are in need of a helping hand. You donations will contribute to all of the essential things they need after losing everything (ie. clothing, glasses, toiletries, gas, etc). 

We understand that so many families have been affected by this tragedy and we are thankful for any support you can offer. Thank you so much. 

-Julia

(Their home was located at 1490 Mark West Springs Road)

UPDATE: We have had so much support for Christine and Dawson in this terrible time that I have decided to increase the goal to $10,000. With this increase they will be able to cover the costs of more than just basic essentials. They will be able to cover the loss of all their businesses including Dawson's office, the air bnb and Christine's art education business (materials, supplies and curriculum). They will also be able to cover some relocation costs as they look for a new home to rent. Thank you all so much for you love and support. We are incredibly grateful for your love and generosity.

Dear contributors,

Thank you SO MUCH for contributing to our GoFundMe campaign!

You are one of our angels. We’ve had so many people help in tangible ways in the past two weeks. Many of the gifts we’ve received have brought us to tears. Food, shelter, clothes, organization, and money. But for you and the other angels, we would have been in dire straits.

We’ve been blogging about what’s been happening to us since the fire, and you can see the most recent posts here (scroll to the bottom of the page for links to all of them):

In the midst of the tragedy in which many people died, we also feel gratitude that so many who lived in our valley got out alive.

It’s also been a time of personal growth for us. We’re learning to receive, and examining our priorities in life. You’ll see those reflections in our blog posts.

We give thanks every day for you and for our magnificent community of fellow souls.

We also have a GoFundMe campaign to help us rebuild EFT Universe, the organization that we started and which as brought healing to thousands of people. Please share the link on social media and let your friends know about how much good they can do by helping EFT Universe rebuild: https://www.gofundme.com/eft-universe-fire-recovery-fund

Thanks again for the donation you made to help us get back on our feet. We know your generosity will return to your life a thousand-fold.

With love,

Christine and Dawson
