The Story

Jeremiah and his family lost their home and all of their belongings last night in the fire... they are alive and safe, but in his own words, "Our lives will forever be changed".

There is a long road to recovery and rebuilding their lives and it will take a village to help them do this. For those of you who know Jeremiah, the Executive Director of The B-Rad Foundation, he is truly one of the most generous spirits who gives endlessly to his community.  He taught 8 years for Windsor Unified Schools as a High School special education and intervention teacher. Currently, Jeremiah teaches at North Bay Met Academy where he makes a difference everyday in the lives of the children who come through his classroom.  

He has done so much to create opportunities for youth in Sonoma County to climb, bike, be healthy and know what happiness is, through his work with the foundation, his teaching and his own selfless acts of kindness, and now we all have the opportunity to give back and express our gratitude in waves of love and support for he and his family in this time of great loss and uncertainty.

Let's show this dear-hearted man and his beloveds just how strong and caring his tribe truly is!!! Now is the time to give, in whatever way you can and practice what it really means to B-Rad!

This man... his heart... these words.

Please show your support!

"How do we communicate the gravity of loss? How do we share the human condition when it overwhelms the mind and senses to point we feel lost in the chaos? How do we move forward? The truth is that the answer is quite simple. We love to the fullest of our ability. We share the burden in what ever way possible. And we face this head on with eyes and heart wide open. I am one of thousands who has lost "everything." And yet, what I once thought was everything is meaningless in the context of what I now know to be most precious in this life. A thousand times I have told my children to value family and community above all else. In the blink of an eye that lesson has been scorched into our lives, more vivid and extreme than I could understand had they not almost ended when we raced from our burning home in the middle of the night.

I have always tried to communicate through our Foundation the importance of purposeful living, sharing love at all times, and being a steward of this lifetime. We were formed through the tragic loss of one of the most incredible humans I have ever known. But through loss we have radiated love to more people than I could have ever imagined. And, I stand here today, my family and I supported by so many of you, with a heart bursting with gratitude. The experience of losing "everything" has made possible the most genuine attainment of love and community beyond what my mind can comprehend.

The Northern California fires that have consumed so much of our beloved landscape are still burning. Lives are being shattered and countless thousands know not what tomorrow will bring. I have been asked "what can I do to help" from so many that I have lost count. The answer is simple. Its right across my chest on the shirt that carried me through the heaviest moment of my life.

B-Brave. B-Love. B-Rad."
