The Story

On December 16th, 2013 a devastaing fire struck the home of Kay Richey and Mike Sandell and destroyed their home, and nearly everything they own. We're all so grateful that Kay,Mike and their dog Uschi are all okay, but we want to show them support to help restore their home and their lives. These are two stubborn people that love to give to others...but aren't very good at reaching out to ask for help...and...they REALLY need it!!!! So hopefully this website will reach out to those that know and love them. They will need to replace destroyed furniture, clothes, and most of their belongings, and will be displaced from their home for several months. 

You may know of Kay and Mike through the burning man community, or for their theme camp Bad Idea Theater located at the 3 0'Clock Plaza. They have been gifting this amazing theater-bar-refuge-space and theme camp to burners for many many years now, and I know if enough burners found out these two needed help they would reach out and support with any donation they could afford. 

Truth is that if every single person or burner that they have ever gifted to... or touched gave even one dollar to this website that Kay and Mike would have a REAL fighting chance to rebuild!!! Please pass this website far and wide to people you think might know them and/or want to help them out. A little goes a long way... and a lot is what they need. :) 

Thank you for your time and any help and support and sharing of this link you can give.

Kay just wrote this 1/21/14 message on Facebook regarding this fundraiser:

"I know we have like 3 months to go on this, but gawd damn, I can't keep my fingers shut that long! Mike and I are overwhelmed and deeply humbled by the love from this amazing community. This outpouring of support means infinitely more than any belongings we have lost. We want to thank each and every one of you personally, and will do our best to do so. For now, just please know that we love you all madly."
