This past week has been nothing short of devastating. Our hearts go out to those affected by, or possibly in harms way of the Thomas Fire along with the rest of the California wildfires. We are accepting donations all week at @herewithmagazine office / @daydreamsurfshop to help aid those who have been affected by the fires.
We'll be driving to Ventura Monday morning to volunteer alongside Iron and Resin.
If you feel called to give, please visit the go fund me link HERE.
Repost from @ironandresin:
There seems to be no end in sight to the fires here. So many families have lost everything in our communities. 150,000 acres and over 750 homes lost and they’ve only been able to survey about half of the area, so that number will most definitely climb. And the fire is only 15% contained. We’re so grateful for the firefighters and emergency personnel that have saved countless lives and homes over the past week. The outpouring of support from friends and strangers has been nothing short of amazing. Neighbors helping neighbors. Complete strangers jumping in with shovels, hoses and chainsaws to help anywhere they can. Folks distributing masks and water to anyone and everyone. So many examples of our community rallying to help. Now it’s our turn. So many of you have reached out asking how you can help. We’ll be setting up a temporary command post next to our Ventura store to as a donation and distribution center for essential items for those families in need. We’re reaching out to brands, retailers, and equipment rental facilities for donations of batteries, walkie talkies, power stations, generators, flashlights, lanterns, protective gear - eyewear, suits and footwear, gasoline (full cans for generators, demo tools, etc. Alternatively, we’ve started a GoFundMe account so folks can just donate funds which will be used to purchase some of these items and provide aid to those families most in need. We’ll also be stocking the InR Mothership as a pop up distribution facility to deliver aid and coordinate volunteer efforts in the areas most affected. We’d love to get volunteers and will be coordinating efforts through our temporary command post in Ventura. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how you can help. Or click on the GoFundMe link in our profile. Together we can make a difference. Please repost and share. #venturastrong#helpcalifornia
