The Story

We Did It!  Thank you!!
The generosity of Christa's friends and supporters is overwhelming and absolutely incredible. A massive thank you to everyone who donated and spread the word about this campaign to help Christa back to her feet! 

Christa

When Christa jumped from the second story porch of her burning house, she saved her own life, but she also fractured her lumbar spine. Three weeks later,  she is trying to pick up the pieces (after subsequently breaking her nose and lacerating her eye lid!). Her life's possessions—clothes, books, documents, her mother's wedding dress— were all lost in the fire. 

For the next three months, she must wear a brace that will protect her healing back, will be unable to make a living as an artist, and will be living in temporary housing. Christa is grateful to be alive, but she needs financial help to cover living costs and rehabilitation. 

Every donation, no matter the size counts and is greatly appreciated!  Please share and help spread the word.

I am filled with love and gratitude for all of you kind, generous souls! With your enthusiastic help and contributions of all shapes and sizes, the road to recovery is paved with yellow bricks (or is that cone 6 sandstone buff?) and sweet-scented wild flowers of hope. Through your efforts I have learned so much about team spirit, our amazing community, and the power of each small gesture together amounting to more greatness than imaginable. This thank you comes from deep within my heart. Much love to you all!

We are humbled and so grateful by the enormous show of support given to Christa through donations, kind words, and shares around the world. A massive thank you to all of you who donated!!! We topped $50,000, way more than any of us had hoped for and dreamed about! There were more than 855 donors and 2,000 shares on Facebook. If you received an email from one of artists in the last few days about a piece of art, congrats! We appreciate everyone's donation, large and small! Thank you for making this incredible community what it is!

Dear friends,

With the help of your extreme generosity of these fund-raising efforts on my behalf, spear-headed by Vicki and Lucinda Snyder, Ayumi Horie, Alleghany Meadows and rae dunn, we have already raised more than $40,000! This outpouring of love and financial support is a reflection of the solidarity, the camaraderie of our community. With your help I will soon be back on track, barring any unforeseen injuries ~ wrap me up with bubble, they say!

I look forward to getting back in the studio. Thanks for all your love and encouragement. I feel privileged to be a participant in the long lineage of ceramic art history, and your affirmation of my life's pursuits is gratefully accepted. 

Wishing you the best,
Christa Assad
