The Story

Gary and Theresa were devastated to learn that their home, woodworking shop and all their tools and possessions were completely destroyed in the Thomas Fire of Ventura County, just weeks before Christmas. Many friends and family have asked if they can help in any way, so we have set up a campaign to help them begin the next chapter of their lives.

Funds donated will be used for supporting them with essentials while they sort through the steps necessary to begin the rebuilding process. We are so deeply grateful for your love and support.

An update from Tae & Aja:

Thank you for supporting our family through this groundless, and frightening time. Our home was the place we returned to at every milestone, to celebrate growth and to find peace when life fell apart. Our parents, Gary and Theresa, lost their home on the 1st night of the fire, and Tae's dad lost his home the 3rd night. Everyone is safe. We have come together as a family under one roof, all living temporarily at Aja's house in Ventura. Every bed and couch is occupied.

We are so grateful that we can all grieve and plan the next steps together. As many of you know, every object in our house had meaning and was filled with spirit.  It was a living, magical world, and our hearts are broken as we say goodbye. 

Your support and generosity has brought us comfort and hope, and it has  redefined the meaning of family and home. Thank you.

You are all deeply appreciated and loved.
Tae & Aja

Wow!  Thank you so much to everyone who has been generous enough to donate to Gary and Theresa's recovery effort.  We reached the $30k goal in just a few short days, which is a testament to how amazing you all are.  We are going to raise to goal to $40k to see if we can surpass that, too...it's absolutely incredible that so many people have jumped in here to assist, some of whom don't even know Gary and Theresa personally, but have heard about their home and were compelled to offer assistance.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!
