Please do let us know how we can help.

Having had a home burn down once the main thing you need after a fire is MONEY. You don't have anywhere to store stuff, you're living in smaller, temporary space, and the last thing you need is boxes and boxes of stuff you can't put anywhere.

I've found that prepaid credit cards and prepaid cell phones with lots of minutes are two things that are most useful to people who lost a home.

Of course, if we hear from Chris we'll know more.

I'm in for whatever, and for what it's worth, I live near Chris from what I've gathered in reading some of his posts and can/will act as a local intermediary if needed and/or requested.

Aloha Everyone,

According to Chris' note, he is living in temporary quarters with no phone, no computer and no internet.

The main thing is he and his are safe.

When we do hear back from him, we can see what he needs. I would actually prefer everything be sent directly to him, especially money. But if he prefers, I can receive and forward stuff. Just don't send cash (to me).

On behalf of Chris, thanks for your concern.

Doug, the only contact I have had with Chris was from a single hand written note that he stuck in the package of sparklites he had in his car that he was sending to me for my kids. In the note, he asked me to contact you for him, which I did immediately.

I suspect he will contact you once he is back on his feet. I was actually thinking of initially sending a prepaid phone to his old address but am not sure if it would find its way to him as he is living in a temporary place.

That is also why I think we shouldn't jump the gun and send anything yet. I figure he will get back to us when he is ready.

Perhaps it could be like a wedding registry:

Need 2 Moras, 3 Sparklites, 1 tarp...
And people could trim the list as we fill the items. So you don't end up with, say, 200 Boy Scout Spark flints and 0 botas.

Let me know if I can help.
