With more than 3,000 people now forced from their homes by B.C. wildfires, and over 435,000 hectares of land destroyed, charities, and donors are gearing up to help.
The Canadian Red Cross has opened an official appeal for B.C. wildfire victims. The organization prefers cash donations, which it says are the most effective way to quickly get help to affected communities. Those funds can be used for cots, blankets and family reunification, as well as for food, clothing and personal needs
