For those of you who don't know already, the series of storms that have hit us here in Central California have caused MAJOR mud and rock slides in Big Sur. This week, the continued rain has caused a complete closure of Hwy 1 through the Big Sur area. Those people (many of my friends) who live and work in the Big Sur area have been severely impacted, with some not able to work and others being displaced from their homes. Bottom line, these people need our help.
I'm offering Free Tech Help & raising money to help residents pay for Helicopter Rides in and out of the area...a service that starts today.
I appreciate your help, in whatever way you can, to assist our friends down in our beautiful Big Sur. Read the sections below for ways you can help.

Free Tech Help: Anyone who is stuck down in Big Sur (without cell or Wifi service) or displaced from their home is encourage to call (831 238 5503) or email me so I can offer my tech skills for FREE. If you know someone who needs this type of help, please let them know about me.
Raising Money For Helicopter Rides: People who live in the impacted Big Sur area can get in and out by Helicopter for $50/ride. I'd like to help as many people as possible by paying for this expense. If you'd like to help, email or call me (831 238 5503) with your contact details and I'll link you to someone in need.
25% of Bead It Forward Sales Donated To Helicopter Ride Fund: Starting today, I will donate 25% of the proceeds from my Bead It Forward business to help defer the costs of helicopter rides for Big Sur residents.
