Josh Martin and his girlfriend, Katie Aldaco, lived in Paradise the last five years. They recently received confirmation that their home was destroyed in the Camp Fire. They rented a room from Josh's mother but have received zero assistance from any agencies or insurance. They are currently trying to raise money to relocate out of the area. Katie's place of work was also burned in the fire and Josh lost 20 years worth of tools and inventory for his gemstone cutting business. Josh is also struggling with health issues; last month he was hospitalized for pancreatitis. So, he is unable to do odd job's to raise fund.
Josh and Katie are going to have to start a new life and even the smallest donations can help. They are also in need of an enclosed cargo trailer that Josh could convert into a new metalsmith/lapidary studio. They also need a more reliable vehicle - Josh's truck has been in to the shop three times since the fire and it still needs tires and engine work done. Their other car and motorcycle burned in the fire.
