It’s hard to see the devastation and grief caused by the numerous California wildfires, including the tragic loss of lives and destruction of iconic landscapes. We’re a strong state; we’ll recover. But it’s tough-going right now. A way to help: Donate money. Charity Navigator is a solid resource for vetting options and understanding a charity’s reputation.
A few organizations seeking donations: the Humane Society of Ventura County—taking in and caring for domestic animals and livestock. Caring Choices in Chico—helping displaced families, and animals. The Entertainment Industry Foundation, a fund helping firefighters. There’s also a GoFundMe page providing info on relief efforts in Northern and Southern California.
Like everyone else, we salute the firefighters: absolute heroes.
