Fires in California

So I was going to relaunch Factoid Fridays today, but with the status of the wildfires in California, I think I’d rather use this space to bring up some resources for how those away from the fires can help firefighters and evacuees. I’ve set up a carrd of resources, as well as some background information on what happened to start the fires, their basic progression, and ways to stay updated.

You can find that carrd here, feel free to share the URL across your various social media.

If you know of any California fire relief funds that I’ve missed, please let me know. Funds will be vetted to make sure donations are fully going to victims of the fires and the firefighters. You can send in any funds I’m missing down below:
