550 Diamond Necklaces Gifted
Nearly $60,000 Raised
The Thomas fire traveled fourteen miles in five hours in the middle of the night of December 4, 2017. Over one thousand families escaped, most driving through a firestorm with just their clothes and keys.
Then terror struck again on January 9, 2018 as torrential flows obliterated swaths of Montecito. Mature trees uprooted and tremendous boulders amidst the mud and debris ruined everything in its path, except the community's determination to dig out and rebuild.
The disaster survivors might have their wedding ring, but usually nothing else. In shock, many rallied to help through volunteering and donating. Our way of helping is to give a diamond necklace. With 550 already given away, one will see these necklaces around the community as a reminder that we are stronger together.
If you lost your home in the Thomas fire or mud flows, please come in for your free diamond necklace. Select from the Ventura Wave, the Ojai Mountains, the Montecito Islands, or the Thrive 805. To receive your free necklace, just stop in with your ID.
If you are a friend or family member of someone who has been flooded or burned, you may order a necklace on their behalf. Orders may be placed in person or by phone, but the necklaces must be picked up in store. You must have their name, address and either their phone or email. We are sorry, but free necklaces are not available online.
Necklaces are available for purchase. 50% of the proceeds will be donated to the United Way's Thomas Fire and Flood Fund. For each $300 diamond necklace, $150 will be donated; for each $100 necklace, $50 will be donated. To date, almost $60,000 has been raised from necklace sales!
Thank you for your support and blessings to those who have lost so much.
