Cory Iverson is a true hero to the Southern California community. He lost his life while fighting the Thomas Fires on 12/14. He leaves behind his best friend and devoted wife and a daughter with another little girl on the way.

As people are asking how they can help, what we know is that they first need your prayers. They also will need help in the coming year as they grieve and learn to adapt to life without Cory. This money will go to Ashley to use as needed–for funeral arrangements, for their girls, for help with the home and the yard, whatever she needs as she grieves and adjusts.

For full disclosure so that everyone knows who is responsible for getting your donations to Ashley, it is Cecily Bauchmann from San Diego, CA. Ashley and Cecily are good friends and met back in 2011 and also work together with Rodan + Fields. Ashley will add her checking account information to this account so they are able to deposit all of your contributions directly to her for her to use as she needs.

*** Please note that in making a donation you will see a “tip” drop down bar. This is OPTIONAL. The tip goes to Go Fund Me, not Ashley. If you wish to NOT to leave a tip click “other” and type $0.00” ***

This fund is created to help with her daughters and the expenses that come with raising little ones, meals, mortgage payments, bills etc. This is still so very new but please contribute as you feel led. Their oldest is almost 3 and they will be due in May with their newest baby. I will update here as needed. Thank you all for blessing the Iverson family.
