Though Snippet & Ink blogs about meaningful weddings and details outside Northern California, we do consider this magical part of the country our home. The recent fires in Napa, Sonoma, Santa Rosa and the surrounding areas are beyond devastating. While we are fortunate to not have been directly affected, we have so many close friends, family, colleagues, and readers who are. Tomorrow, I’m heading north with Kathryn from Dream A Little Dream Events to volunteer. I know many in our wedding community want to know how they can help, and we’ll be sure to relay what we witness firsthand—I’ll update this post as soon as I know more. In the mean time, our friend Alicia K Designs is accepting donations (clothes for older children and adults, blankets, new pillows, new underwear for all ages, unopened packaged non-perishable food, baby formula, pet food, medical supplies, face masks, flashlights, toiletries, etc) at her studio at 218 Shaw Rd, Unit 7 in South San Francisco. If you can’t make a donation in person but still want to help, send us an email and we will coordinate a pick up! This little community of ours is so strong, and we are grateful for all the relationships that bond us together. Now’s the time to do everything we can to lift each other up.
