Our dear friends James & Olivia Peterson of lost their home in Ashland, Oregon yesterday in the wildfires. They've lost their home, their family business, their outbuildings and all of their personal property.
Olivia and James were awakened in the middle of the night by a neighbor pounding on their door telling them the fires were close and they needed to evacuate. City alerts had not been working and there was almost no notice. They escaped with only the clothes on their back and their dogs. In a matter of hours their property had been consumed.
We are raising funds for immediate resources to help them get through these next weeks and months as they find suitable lodging and replace essentials. We'd like to be able to get this help to them as quickly as possible and ask for your help raising as much as possible in the next few days so that we can conclude this Campaign by September 25th (which also happens to be Olivia's birthday).

Thank you for your donations and support.
Please share with anyone who may be willing or able to help. 100% of donations collected will be provided to Chris & Lisa Kirk immediately upon the conclusion of this fundraiser. I am working directly with them and have their blessing to organize this fundraiser on their behalf.
(on behalf of Olivia & James Peterson)
