I'm sure many of you know of the devastating fires that swept through Sonoma and Napa county in October. So many families were affected by these terrible fires, losing many things dear to their heart. It was a hard time for many people, and many are still trying to pick up the pieces. During this heartbreaking time though, it was truly amazing to see the community come together and offer support where needed. Whether it was a donation, offering up a place to stay, serving hot meals, or lending an ear to listen, the community really rallied together to support those affected.
I too also wanted to help. I thought about how I could use photography as a way to somehow add to all of the amazing things people were doing to help families in need. So, I held a fundraiser where 100% of all the money raised would be donated to the Redwood Credit Union Fire Relief Fundraiser. https://www.redwoodcu.org/northbayfirerelief
That day I photographed 10 families, and we raised over $500 - ALL to be donated to the relief fund! A HUGE thank you to all the families that came out that day and supported this great cause. Sonoma and Napa Strong!
