FOR DONORS: (THANK YOU!)
The Fyera Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit charity, has a long history of providing humanitarian assistance in times of need all over the world. This time, the need is happening in our home community, and we need your help to facilitate a loving recovery for our special mountain family. All donations made to this campaign are tax-deductible in the USA.
A 69-year-old Californian put all of his resources into paying for materials to self construct his dream home in Boulder Creek, California. Because he was building it himself, insurance would not cover the home until it was complete. With only a few weeks left of construction, to have the property fully insured, a dry lightening storm ignited hundreds of bush fires in all directions . This man's dream, hard and heart work, and life savings, were taken away from him and his wife overnight in the CZU fire.
This is just one example of how California's fires have impacted the lives of the people who live here. With the fires still burning and heroic men and women working non stop to keep houses, people, animals, and our sacred forest lands safe, we ask for your support.
Funds raised will be distributed to relief and rebuilding efforts, supporting first responders, animal welfare, and State Park regions like Big Basin. We will also help with solutions for post-fire water contamination, prevention of soil erosion and post wildfire mud slides, and other needs we identify as the mitigation and recovery process progresses. Nearly 1,000 families have lost their homes, and many also their livelihoods. This is a humble community rich in spirit. Help us rise like a Phoenix from these ashes (or perhaps in our case an Albino Peacock rising from the ashes? Our town mascot is a wild albino peacock named Albert who has lived in a our community for 20 years! And made it through the fire! The photo above is a real picture of Albert- to learn more about the magic of Albert and our community go HERE
With your help, the Santa Cruz Mountains, San Lorenzo Valley, and our little town of Boulder Creek can again be an inspiration for how heart-based local communities who take care of one another can show the world how we, together, can create a world that works better for all.
