Donate to help the good people of Fort McMurray

It is estimated that between 80,000 and 100,000 Canadians have been impacted or have been evacuated from their homes in Fort McMurray after today’s wildfires devastated the city.

I have donated to the Canadian Red Cross Alberta Fires Emergency Appeal to help the good people of Fort McMurray in their time of need. I encourage you to so you as well.
