Repost from @coralreefer420 - Honestly there are SO many disasters happening right now that this isn't a plea for you to donate to any one over another, it's a plea that you PLEASE donate and help out where you can, whether it's within your own neighborhood, your city, your state or somewhere even farther. People around the world need compassion and resources shared with them.
In California, we are being ravaged by deadly fires that have spread across the wine and weed region. There are many ways to donate or help the thousands of people being affected, the quicker the better so please help out if you can!
In SANTA CRUZ: "@kindpeoples8 will be collecting needed items which will be transported north to relief centers. Please donate clean blankets, towels, toiletries, nonperishable food items and pet supplies to either of the #KindPeoples locations at 3600 Soquel Avenue and 140 Dubois in Santa Cruz.
This unprecedented disaster has cost lives as well as destroyed homes, crops, farms and livelihoods for many thousands of fellow Californians. The staff at KindPeoples extends our heartfelt sympathy to friends and family up north who are suffering." - quoted from a recent email from the KP staff
