There are a number of charities you can choose from but how do you know you are making the right choice?
They evaluate charities on many factors, including how much donated money is used for their charitable programs rather than fundraising and general expenses.
The effects of disasters such as the California wildfires can go on for months or years, notes Daniel Borochoff, founder of CharityWatch. So consider making additional contributions later on.
Donate clothes, canned/non-perishable foods, tarps etc, to the Red Cross, or The Humane Society.
OR Write a Thank you card to the California Firefighters!
