As three major wildfires continue to burn in California, at least 80 people have died, hundreds are missing and thousands of people have been forced to leave their homes. Firefighters continue to battle the Camp, Woolsey and Hill fires, as the Camp Fire has become the deadliest and most destructive fire in the state's history.
Many people lost their homes and all their belongings, evacuating with just the clothes they were wearing. As they wait in temporary shelters, there is an overwhelming need for assistance. If you want to help those impacted, here are just some of the ways you can offer aid.

Traditionally, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving has been deemed "Giving Tuesday"
which following after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, is meant to inspire people to make donations to charitable causes. This year, we are not waiting for Tuesday, but are combining Black Friday and Cyber Monday with Giving Tuesday to make donations to the Victims of the California Wildfires. By simply shopping for the holiday gifts you were going to buy anyway, you'll also be supporting the Californians who lost their homes, jobs and their loved ones.
Shop at our Store and Online Shop to make sure your holiday gift-giving truly gives back
For every purchase during this long weekend (Nov.23-26) we will donate 10% of the sales to the AARP Foundation which has created a relief fund to support the victims of the California wildfires.
