We have seen a lot of changes in the world around us and some of those changes involve the natural disasters that so many seem to be going through. It just seems as if those disasters are occurring more and more frequently. It really doesn’t matter if it is a hurricane, tornado, earthquake, volcano, or wildfire, they all have the ability to turn our world upside down and to bring us to a situation where we could use some help. That was the case in 2018 when the Campfire in California took away so much from so many. Although it was a devastating situation, there was at least one man that made a change.
His name is Woody Faircloth and he saw a story about what had happened to individuals that suffered from the Campfire. In the story that he saw, one of the victims of the fire said that they were happy to have an RV where they could live temporarily. That got this man thinking that if more people had an emergency RV, they would be in a better situation. That is when he took his seven-year-old daughter, Luna, and asked her if she wanted to drive to California from their home in Denver, Colorado. As it turns out, it was the perfect thing to do and after setting up a campaign to bring in some money, he went on Craigslist to buy an RV. He even got a deal when the owner found out what he was going to do with it.
He and Luna made the trip to California a number of times over the years. It’s about a 20-hour drive one way and they were able to deliver some 95 motorhomes to those who were displaced by the fires.
Many of the families that were helped were first responders who were fighting the blaze and lost their homes in the process. Many of the people also returned the RVs when they get permanent housing. It’s a beautiful thing to see and although it is difficult for them to go through the fires, it’s a bit of hope that is on the horizon.
