This past month we’ve been talking about Knock Knock, It’s A
K-EARTH Christmas
where our listeners could nominate a deserving family in need of help this holiday season. After reading through all the touching submissions, we’ve zeroed in on one family that has been directly affected by the wildfires that have been burning all over Southern California.

Below is the submission we chose: (Names have been edited out for privacy):

“I am nominating, not just a family, but a small Ranch Community.  This ranch is home to a family of three, their small staff and the 500 animals who live there.  With all hands on deck, they managed to evacuate every single animal, but their property and all of the homes on it were destroyed in the fire.  The owners of this company include the wife who runs the company, the husband who is serving in the U.S. Army, and their 3 year old son.  Even after losing their home, they continue to operate as the shows must go on.  This place is truly a family-run business who could use all the help they can get right now.”

Hear more about our Knock Knock Christmas family in the clip below:
