Help Tammy Kim's Family: CA Fires

Created November 15, 2018


Listen to the Kim Family  share the story of their brave escape.

The Northern California wildfires swept through and wiped out the town of Paradise, leaving numerous families homeless.

On November 5, the Brave Writer Podcast aired an interview Julie Bogart did with Tammy Kim. Two days later, her home in Paradise CA burned to the ground. An outpouring of concern for Tammy and family, from the Brave Writer community, followed. Click Here to Hear Tammy's Podcast Episode.

Tammy’s family escaped with only a laptop and the clothes on their backs.

Thankfully they are safe, but they left with such urgency that they couldn’t prepare: their home and all their belongings, including a much-loved piano, burned to the ground.

The town of Paradise is gone. Tammy's childhood home was also completely destroyed.


It’s going to be a long journey back to ordinary life—especially with the approaching holiday season—so let's step up as a community and share our love and generosity.

We each have the incredible ability to make this family’s journey more bearable with a donation.

Let’s show our fellow Brave Writers how much we care! Large or small, any donation truly helps. Thank you so much!

All donations will go directly to Tammy Kim’s family who lost everything in the CA fires.

We will post updates on this page as we receive more information.

Thank you for your compassion & generosity!
