Help A Gun Owner Rebuild After The Yarnell Wildfire

Kevin Baker of The Smallest Minority has the details.

Eva Mickelthwaite is a competitive IPSC/USPSA shooter here in Arizona.  Some friends of hers live in Yarnell, the area recently devastated by wildfire:

As you all may know the Yarnell Fire has burned more than 8000 acres in Arizona.  It has devastated the town of Yarnell and abruptly took the lives of 19 brave men, a loss that will be felt for a very long time to come.

Unfortunately, as many of you may already know, it has also taken the home of Steve & Debi Keehner.  Due to the age of the home, it was un-insurable, so it is a complete loss for them.

Annette Williamson and I have received an enormous amount of feedback from the shooting community asking what we can do to help.  At this time, we think the best way we can help is in the form of a monetary donation.  We have set up a Paypal link on my website that accepts many forms of payments.  We have also set up an account at Wells Fargo under "Keehner Rebuild Fund" in case you prefer to handle it the old fashioned way.  You will need to reference the zip code 85226 if you plan to go to the bank.

Please take the time to make a donation, no matter how small.  We received our first $10 donation from the Wells Fargo account specialist  who set up the account. She contributed out of her personal pocket for a couple she doesn't know.  It all adds up folks, and I'm sure they will appreciate whatever we are able to do. (BTW...they have only just been told about this account. We're not sure they are aware of the amount of support they have behind them, but are about to see so).

Thanks to all of you who have contacted us to ask what can be done.  It was your overwhelming response that motivated us to make this happen.

If you have any questions or problems with the link, please feel free to email me at lady38shooter@gmail.com.

I don't understand that as my Dixieland consists of two homes, a 1790 Georgian and a 1810 Federal and they are both insured and have always been so. I hope they weren't given the wrong information.
