Already 40,000 people across this province have been forced to evacuate their homes as wildfires rage across the province. While firefighters are making heroic efforts to hold back the spread, there's still no rain in the forecast.
Last year, when thousands evacuated Fort McMurray, Alberta, you responded with thousands of dollars to support the Red Cross' relief efforts. If you're so moved again, consider volunteering to relief centres across the province or donating to the Red Cross' BC Fires appeal.
If Humanism compels us to do anything, it's to help others in their time of need.
And if you're in one of the affected areas, please let us know that you're okay and if there's anything the Humanist community in BC can do for you. Even if you have a positive story in the midst of this crisis, we'd love to share it.
