Carla Hoffman was one of the first people to spread the word about my blog when I got kicked off of Livejournal in 2007, something I appreciated dearly. She is a semi-regular commenter here and she is good people.
I mention this because Carla and her husband Lance had the bad luck to get caught in the California wildfires, and who are currently still in very bad shape (with life-threatening burn damage) in the hospital, and who have not incidentally lost pretty much everything they own in said fire.
A Facebook group has been set up to keep people updated and to give information as to where people can pass along helpful moneys and gifts and so forth. If you don’t have Facebook, you can send a cheque, made out to “The Lance And Carla Burn Fund,” to:
Santa Barbara Bank & Trust
1483 East Valley Road
Montecito, CA 93108-1248
If you can afford to send a little money their way, they could really use it.
