California Wildfires devastate communities and incur loss of human life. When we think about disaster response and recovery, we tend to think about hunger, homelessness, and clean water. Diapers are an overlooked, yet crucial, basic need. All babies deserve to be clean, dry, and healthy. This fund exists to serve communties hit by wildfire disaster in California, both in immediate and long term relief.
Hurricane Irma is one of the strongest storms ever measured in the Atlantic and has caused catastrophic damage. This fund will provide relief to survivors in the form of emergency supplies like food, water, and medicine in addition to longer-term recovery assistance to help residents recover and rebuild. All donations to this fund will exclusively support any necessary relief and recovery efforts from this storm in the US and Caribbean.
