Fundraising for Crazyhounddog - Home & Business lost in Paradise CA Fire
I've never done anything like this before and do not wish to break any of our host's rules, but I would like to start or contribute to a fund already started for my great friend, Joe Best. Known as crazyhounddog on the forum this man has been so generous to so many that the devastation that his hometown of Paradise, CA has incurred is heart breaking. I would donate $100, but do not know how to do so. I would like Joe to know that many of us care enough about him to support him at one of his lowest moments. Regardless of any insurance settlements, his family will need much to support them during their evacuation of their home and business. If I am out of line, I apologize, but I feel this is something that needs being done. A little help please with the mechanics of setting up such a fund.
Thank you all and God Bless Joe and his family and friends.

We are all alright and physically unharmed. My son and daughter both lost their homes and as you might be able to imagine they are depressed. They just got the news about an hour ago. We can not find anyone that can tell us about our house and our school. Reports we get is that 99% of the town we love so much is gone. I’ll never forget while I was frantically loading up our vehicles for our escape hearing propane tanks exploding and get closer at every boom. That’s when I told everyone to get in their cars and go. We were extremely lucky to get out when we did. Driving out of town gusting winds blowing hot ashes all over our cars as we were going at a snail's pace cause the visibility was about 10 feet.
Words can not express the feelings I have for this forum and the good folks here.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you to all. I don't know how to say thank you to such kindness and love I see directed to myself and my family.
When I find out more I’ll fill you all in.
Warm regards, Joe and family
