How to Help Those Affected by California Wildfires

How can You Help Those Affected by California Wildfires? It's easy.

Donate Smart

There are a number of charities you can choose from but how do you know you are making the right choice?

Charity Navigator, CharityWatch, and BBB Wise Giving Alliance. are the three Charity Watch Dogs to help you make the best choice.

They evaluate charities on many factors, including how much donated money is used for their charitable programs rather than fundraising and general expenses.

Give for the long term.

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.

Short on Cash but still want to help?

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!

Their PO Box is: PO Box 944246, Sacramento, CA 94244-2460

Check the Consumer Report for all the info and which charities the Three Watch Dogs approve of the most!!
