A six-minute video reminder of last summer's devastation

In July 2014, the largest wildfire in Washington’s history roared through Okanogan County, consuming an area four times the size of Seattle. Of the hundreds of homes that burned, almost half were uninsured—a common occurrence in rural locations, where insurance is often unavailable, or prohibitively expensive. 

For those who don't remember what last summer's wildfires were like, we created the above video, which paints a poignant reminder of those days. 
And to see what a new home can mean to someone who lost everything, click on the video below:

Yitzhak Ben-Harush is one of the survivors who is getting a new home.

We haven't done it all--and we haven't done it alone. A small army of volunteers has provided virtually all of the labor. Generous suppliers are discounting the materials. Leadership donors have funded the first 11 homes of Phase One.Now we're reaching out to the greater community to fund Phase Two.

And one more thing:

Please forward this email to your co-workers, family, and friends! Tell them how much their support means to us. Tell them how far we'll be able to stretch their gifts.
That's the power of an online campaign: many gifts add up to a force that is Stronger than Fire.
