Wildfire help!

My heart breaks every time I see the fires. I was driving on the freeway Saturday Night and saw a raging fire at the very top of the mountain. It looked something out of a crazy horror movie. The helicopters were like little tiny bugs fluttering francticaly around the huge rawring blaze, it looked scary, it felt scary and it smelled terrifing. All I could think of was the poor animals who have no where to go, they are so high up not even people can live.

I can't just sit and watch on T.V, I HAVE to be up close and personal, I NEED to be right there assistaing who ever I can help. I don't just want to drop shit off, I HAVE TO AND I NEED TO be in the mix, I have the luxory of working from home and on my time, I want to spend my days and nights helping these people, the animals and the fire fighters trying to end the fires.

When I am passionate about something I need to be hands on.

I seriously get teary eyed because I think of all the animals who have lost their home, Yes PEOPLE also lost their homes and that has to be absolutely
devastating, however, animals can not simply stay with friends, rent an apartment or borrow food from a neighbor. Their ONLY salvation is US.

My mom has been a member of the Red Cross before I was a twinkle in her eye. I grew always being prepared for any emergency including earthquakes.

I think that's why it's so important to me that those in need get helped.

I don't think it's a coincidence
I'm in promoting/marketing, getting the word out, that's how I make my money, it's my job. but right now I am so blessed and grateful that I have this knowledge in exact times like this. I have access to literally THOUSANDS of people, majority of people who just watch the fires going on in the news but probably succumb to their own problems they don't think they can help, not that they don't want to .. but just don't know how or may think what little they have to offer is not enough...

a Blanket can do wonders, a Tooth Brush or even a granola bar can make someones day. Especially if they are left with what is on their back.

This isn't a community fire, this is a wild fire, this is something so massive. These poor Animals just lost their home, they are living breathing things and NOW have NO WHERE to go. It's bad enough us greedy fucking humans keep plowing and building more and more into their homes, to where if they go a little further down the hills they get killed.

Isn't life hard enough to survive in the wilderness? and now all these beautiful trees and plants have died?

they are BURNED. ASHES. it will take months if not YEARS, and especially in Cali where we don't really have seasons, these poor creatures both big and small, animal and humans, mother nature and earth as one will have to start all over again, and in today's way of life it's not easy.

I'm not just a Animal Activist, I am a person who will always help out any other person, animal and the Mother Earth.

There are times like right now where the Animals need our help even more, not to where they are more important ( even though I personally think they are) but it's just a act of compassion.

so before I start getting hate mail for me caring more about an animal then a person, do me a favor, show me what you have done for your neighbor.. where do you volunteer? what human organizations are you involved with? giving a dollar to someone standing outside the market isn't what I will accept.

anywho, being frustrated with not enough adequate information to help everyone affected, I have taken it upon my own to contact those organizations, preferably the smaller ones, as I gather info from them I will be giving out the more known and trusted.

Many Many ways!

-Blankets both heavy and light sheets, pillows, anything bedding!
-Tooth Brushes, Razors, Shampoo/Conditioner, Soaps, etc

Think of things you use everyday and that should help you narrow it down.


HIT THE 99 CENT STORES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ALSO! Contact the fire stations, drop off food and water, cards, etc These Fire Fighters need our help as well and our APPRECIATION FOR WHAT THEY ARE DOING!
