The two states closest to my heart are California and Oregon. A Southern California girl living in the PNW, my heart is hurting with the wildfires burning up the West Coast. Many have lost their homes, businesses, loved ones, and more. In Portland, I can't go outside more than a couple of minutes without my eyes burning and my throat coated with ash. If you are able to - especially during these unique times - considering giving back in the ways below. Thank you to all of the incredible firefighters who are working to fight these monstrous fires with the resources available - you are appreciated!
