If anyone is on Twitter why not put out appeals to your favourite stars. If they are not badly affected maybe they'll want to get onboard to help.
Does anyone know of a way that we could organize a group of the more trained and willing as well as skilled hands of us that would be willing to travel and put some of our free time to work on some of the rescue efforts if we had the financial resources to do some good?

There is going to need to be Veterinarian relief and trained and those with just hands on know how and those willing to go in when it’s safe and even not so perfectly safe to rescue animals whether wildlife and livestock very soon to give them half a fighting chance. Our country is going to lose precious natural resources by the boatloads in both the wild animals and in mans live stock during all these fires alone not to mention the flooding and hurricanes that have just started for the year but are going to keep occurring during the remainder of the year according to the hurricane prediction center. They have stated that we will run out of named storms and get beyond them into Roman Numerals for 2020. That definitely doesn’t sound comforting at all.
I have just googled how to help the American fires, and there's nothing :(. We really need to get onto this, everything starts in a small way. :hugs:love

Oh also... many rescued animals are going to have to be rehired because people’s houses and farms have been lost and destroyed for now. So until things can be rebuilt and reseeded as well as farms be all fixed to what they originally were once the animals unless they were used to work the farms cannot be used on it to build it up and will have to be relocated elsewhere.

Usually you can contact the salvation army or red cross. Also local churches usually send a group of people as well. Make a few phone calls, then spread the info far and wide. :)

Just asked ron the Baker to drop in. Everyone and anything can help. Every scrap of information counts.

Thank you all so much for your ideas and thoughts. BYC is more than amazing. :wee :love
I am sorry for the fact that I am not in the loop but who is Ron the Baker? I don’t know him. If he is a very famous person with lots of connections I apologize for not knowing who he is ...I am just lost on knowing him. I do admit. I just live under a rock much of the time I will admit. I do not know who he is or who he is connected with. I do apologize. My life is pretty much

Hi Folks, it's really thoughtful of you to start a thread on this issue. I'm in Oregon and volunteer regularly. The word is material donations are hard to organize, sanitize and distribute right now.

This link has an article and then an interactive map to see local charities
https://katu.com/news/local/want-to-donate-to-wildfire-relief-efforts-heres-how-you-can-help

This link is for fallen wildland firefighter's families:
https://wffoundation.org/

The Redcross is doing a bulk of the emergency housing right now so, monetary donations are good for that.

oregonfoodbank.org is also a place to start, they're really stretched thin right now.

Thanks for any and all help, it will be needed for many months to come, the fires are truly devastating.

@ronott1 is in the baking thread here. He is famous too me because he's actually got me to bake a decent loaf of bread for the first time in my life and even made me able too make a starter for bread. :)

Thanks so much for these links. Let's hope we can get them past around by our people here in BYC

Please stay safe :love
