I am finding it so very hard to fathom all of this, and to even be able to close my eyes tonight. I wish I was in California right now, my heart and my thoughts are deeply with my second home. If you are in LA PLEASE please help out... below are ways that you can: (Organizations To Donate To Courtesy of @Refinery29 )
The Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation supports the first responders fighting on the frontlines of the wildfires. They are currently requesting donations to put towards hydration backpacks for the firefighters you can visit their website www.lafd.org .
The CCF Wildfire Relief Fund supports immediate recovery efforts for major California wildfires, as well as long-term preparedness efforts.
The United Way of Greater Los Angeles is partnering with United Way of Ventura County to collect donations for its its Disaster Relief Fund.
The Entertainment Industry Foundationis raising money through its Fire Relief Fund.
The Humane Society of Ventura County is accepting animals evacuating from the Hill and Woolsey fires. You can also donate directly to the organization or purchase items like food and toys through their Amazon wish list.
Baby2Baby is working to get high-need items to children affected by the ongoing Camp, Hill, and Woolsey fires in California. Help them supply diapers, wipes, blankets, and other basic baby essentials to families in need by purchasing from their registry.
Firefighters are in need of care baggies (eye drops, face wipes, granola bars, water, etc) please go to your local store and fill up as many ziplock baggies as you can, there are fire stations that are available for drop off.
If you know any other ways to help, please comment below and I will do my best to add them in this post.
Lastly, I hope we all take a moment right now- whether it’s a prayer, moment of silence or whatever it is that you want to do, and think of the lives lost, the homes lost, the animals lost, the wounded, and the brave first responders... My heart is broken.
