" I’ve heard a lot of people wishing they could help or do more, so I want to challenge everyone to donate. Texting REDCROSS to 30333 will automatically donate $5 (very simply charged to your phone bill) to aid in the wildfire disaster. If everyone who reads this can donate $5, that’s a significant donation right there,” shares David.

“I also think it goes without saying – but we need too anyway – how appreciative everyone is for the support already pouring in. From hotels and restaurants offering free accommodations and meals, to individuals and businesses trucking up fuel, water, and food to the evacuees who have yet to leave the city. As a former Fort McMurrayite. It’s awesome to see how calm, cool and collected mayor, Melissa Blake, and Premiere Notley have been throughout the entire ordeal. Great examples of leadership,” exclaims David.
