The Blue Cut Fire in San Bernardino County, CA has burned over 30,000 acres in 24 hours, with zero containment. Many houses have been destroyed, and over 85,000 people have been displaced from their homes. Temperatures are over 100 degrees, and high winds are making the efforts to extinguish the fire difficult. We need to pool resources to help as many people as possible. 80,000 people have been displaced, and may have lost everything in the fires. We need to get them temporary housing, food, clothing and anything else you could offer. Over 300 animals are being sheltered at the San Bernardino County fairgrounds, and we will need to get food and supplies to them. We would like to crowd fund enough to be able to offer support to our public safety workers as well. We have firefighter and police officers working around the clock to protect the community. Please help any way you can. Google "Blue Cut Fire" to see how you can help. We are currently putting a set of resources together. Please help and share.
