The Story

We are all incredibly relieved that Emma, Joe, Tony and Gus are safe after loosing everything in the fire.  So many have offered to help but sometimes it's hard to know what's needed.  Here's your chance!  Instead of a bottle of wine, dinner out or a week of lattes please donate*.  Let's show our friends we care and help them out - you know they'd do it for us!     


*IMPORTANT. Once you have selected your donation amount the site will suggest a 'tip' percentage for the YouCaring site. This is not necessary or required. In the percentage box select 'other' and set the tip amount to zero before confirming your donation.    


Unlike many other donation sites the YouCaring site doesn't charge a fee, however all donation sites use a third party credit card processor and these processors charge 2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction.     

Please mail Gift Certificates or checks to Emma and Joe at  PO Box 1136, Carpinteria, CA 93014

A beautiful update from Emma. 

"This past weekend was our final attempt at retrieving any precious items from the rubble that was once our home.  We knew the rain was coming, and that after it had passed all chances of finding anything would be lost. 

Over the weekend Joe and I had the gift of friends to help with that process. Gus had yet to go through the spaces where his precious things were and so I stood by him and we searched, sifting endlessly through the ash, looking for specific items.  As I was beginning to give up I looked down and saw his tiny six month old footprint in the ash, barely visible. Unbelievable.  Then as I took another step, there was the other piece, his little hand print.  So perfectly intact, despite the heat.  Small miracles!"

Please continue to share this fundraiser.

Thank you all for the outpouring of love and support. We have been so blessed living the dreamy lifestyle on our mountain top. We have no regrets and we will be back up there as soon as it is healthy enough to do so. I'm sure a "barn raising" party will have you all up there some time in the future to celebrate with us. The Chismahoo is a magical place, and as much as we cherish our privacy, we are equally touched by the sharing of our story. Much love to you all xo
