Thank you to all those who donated clothing for the victims of the Woolsey & Hill Fire. We collected over 400 items to donate to those who lost everything. Take this holiday to reflect on all the things to be thankful for...like awesome KSA friends! To members: Jonathan & Jaylan H., Frank M., Melissa P., and others THANK YOU! #csudh #csudhKSA #csudhkinesiology #giveback #woolseyfire #hillfire #805strong
Making a DIFFERENCE one t-shirt at a time. Please check out www.lemonaidrelief.com see all the latest shirt designs in one location. 😀
I may have few followers on Instagram. I may have been defriended on Facebook by my numerous fundraising posts, but what I do have is the joy of my kids waking up next to me in the morning. What I do have is my home still standing. The joy some parents (and non-parents) have so tragically lost due to the devastating wildfires and senseless mass shootings that have recently occurred in our communities. #campfire #woolseyfire #hillfire #borderlinestrong
My only goal is to help raise money to aid those suffering from both the recent #wildfires and the victims families of the borderline mass shooting. Whether you choose to buy a shirt my boys and I designed or you choose to donate or or help in anyway possible is all that matters.
As I told my kids last week, it doesn’t always have to involve money to offer compassion. Even a little note to cheer those suffering could make someone’s day❤️
Blood, Sweat and Tears.. literally. From our labor to our office workers... we’ve been overtiming/double shifting... our owners, putting in ALL their time, efforts and dedication to helping as many people as we can get back in their homes as soon as possible. No matter the size, no matter the time frame... #WeGetItDone it’s been such an emotional ride for all of us especially with our own that were affected by the #WoolseyFire at some point we all broke down, but we are all here for eachother. We love eachother. We are a family. #servpro #Servprolife #WoolseyFire #campfire #hillfire #grateful #thankyou #thanksgiving #thankful Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃🍁 S/O to @sunbeltrentals

Evacuating, putting out fires, joyfully returning home. .
We built forts for two hours this morning, it was wildly fun. But among the play, in nearly every area, children uniquely and without prompting reenacted the scenes and sounds of the last 10 days. .
Our community, and our very youngest are still sorting through what has happened here.
It’s a blessing to do it together. We are stronger that way!
Thank you to the volunteers and staff who made these last minute science and art times possible over the last week. We are thankful that you brought us together!

Took a #funrun around the beautiful region of #wildwood being mindful of closed vs open #trails
The #landscape is surreal. These hills WILL return to their glorious splendor, it is nature's way. Praying for a light, steady rainfall tonight so people, animals and property are safe. Unfortunately, it is going to be a muddy mess.
Be safe and always #grateful for life!
We have a wonderful update for our supporters on the two horses who were rescued by the Humane Society of Ventura County from a burnt down property in Malibu. Flash and Pepe had originally been escorted out of a burned down home in Malibu by HSVC Equine Specialist Christie Tracy, and HSVC Animal Rescue Emergency Volunteer Bennie Scorsur. The horses were transported down to Zuma beach where they were transferred to animal rescue workers, Allie Tashnek DVM, Chris Weber, and Chloe Willems, who took them to Humphrey Giacopuzzi & Associates Equine Hospital for immediate care.
The horses' injuries and burns were treated at the hospital and the horses were released to the HSVC last week. After losing everything in the fire, the horses' owners then made the difficult decision to sign the horses over to the Humane Society of Ventura County so we could continue their care and eventually place them into loving new homes.
In a matter of days, the two horses made huge improvements and we are happy to report were adopted by A little Rescue just a few days ago! A Little Rescue is a nonprofit located in Thousand Oaks whose mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, & re-home animals who would otherwise end up without the love and compassion they so greatly deserve.
A Little Rescue had to evacuate during the recent Hill and Woolsey fires and brought their horses to the HSVC for safekeeping. While visiting their horses they saw Flash and Pepe and knew they could help. Fortunately, their rescue was not harmed in the fires and when they came to pick up their horses they adopted Flash and Pepe too! The two horses loaded up into their trailer like champs and are doing fabulous in their new home. Thank you to A Little Rescue for helping these two horses after all they have been through, and to everyone who helped give this story a happy ending! @alittlerescue #hsvc #ojai #horse #woolseyfire #malibu #malibustrong #humanesociety #805 #805strong #LA #LACounty #rescuehorses #horse #venturacounty #hillfire

Thanking the man up stair for bringing the rain to put this ugly beast to sleep! Prayers and good vibes to all those effected by the #campfire #woolseyfire #hillfire.

The latest #woolseyfire satellite imagery from @nasa shows the extent of the blaze’s burn scar over the Santa Monica Mountains and nearby areas. The #hillfire burn scar is also visible to the northwest. #ktla
This is the burnt hill right above the #NewburyPark post office, about a half mile from my home. Let’s hope the upcoming rains doesn’t do anymore damage...🤞🏼 #HillFire #ThousandOaks

In the wake of the Hill and Woolsey fires in Southern California, Douglas Elliman is taking steps to help both the victims and first responders who are putting their lives on the line to protect our communities.
Through the Douglas Elliman Foundation, we have organized an opportunity for our agents, employees and friends to help those affected and in need. And because the situation is so dire, we have decided to match, dollar-for-dollar, every contribution made to the foundation up to $100,000.
The funds collected will be divided amongst the following non-profit organizations: The California Fire Foundation, The United Way’s Disaster Relief Fund and The American Red Cross. To donate, please click the link in my bio. Blessings for a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. 💙 -Andrea Shink | Douglas Elliman Beverly Hills | CalDRE:01228179 | #WoosleyFire #HillFire #California
What does it mean to give thanks
Perhaps it is more than simply a feeling you acknowledge, or verbalize.
Maybe we are supposed to give thanks through actual giving —
Giving of time, energy and money to persons and causes that make this harsh world a little better, a little more bearable.
This year, our family has decided that thanks without the act of giving is missing the point.
There is an inexhaustible level of need in this world, and we want to help meet some of it.
So, we have decided to use this holiday as a really good excuse to donate money to some organizations providing relief for those affected by the California wildfires. So many families have been displaced, so many homes and so many lives destroyed.
We we want to stand alongside them now.
Our donation is not massive, but we hope it is a part of a collective outpouring that makes a larger difference than we could make on our own.
Here is one of the organizations we believe is doing the best work on the ground right now:
The California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund. For 15 years, the foundation has offered aid to those affected by wildfires. Grants have gone to rebuilding homes, providing financial and mental health assistance and helping those affected to get medical treatment. 💛 (link in bio).
If you are able, please consider joining our family and donating with us.

I felt like highlighting the end result of the incredible efforts by everyone that donated time, supplies, and/or money to help the #animals of the #woolseyfire, #hillfire, and the #campfire.
There has been such a huge outpouring of support in communities as so many have been affected, including beloved pets and #wildlife.
Currently the Woolsey Fire is 96+% contained and the Camp Fire is roughly 80% contained this morning. However, the battle is far from over. There are still more than 800 people unaccounted for and 84 lives claimed as of this post. And now with the possibility of rain, there is potential for mudslides, etc. If you aren’t sure how you can help, there are literally dozens of organizations you can check into for disaster relief and more.
Big ups to @timsyndicate and and the fellas at @syndicatebarbershop for taking on another drive like this. And to @ivyorganicsla & @emericksironworks For their contributions as well.

Our hearts are with everyone affected by the devastating wildfires happening here in California. We are thinking of you in these difficult times.
We are so grateful for the thoughtful concern from our members who have contacted us in recent days. The redwood forests and the staff of the League are safe, and our hearts are with the thousands who have been impacted by the devastation.

hey all!!! the holiday season is upon is & we all know its the season of giving! unfortunately, with the recent #CampFire , #WoolseyFire , #PeakFire & #HillFire a lot of families won't be able to celebrate their holidays doing anything other than trying to rebuild lives that were already established. thankfully, so many people have stepped up to the plate to support these families on their journey to creating new lives or simply getting back to a semblance of the one they had, like @florluxuryflowers . This holiday for every one of these beautiful wreaths purchased- she will be donating 25% to families who lost their homes. What an amazing way to kick off the season- with giving and decorating your home with a gorgeous eye piece that says "Welcome!". So head on over to her page...and tell her I sent you! (and yes- she ships!) #FlorLuxuryFlowers #HolidayWreaths #WomenOwnedCreatedandOperated
The US state of California has been devastated by the most destructive and deadliest wildfires in the state’s history. While wildfires, like hurricanes, are rooted in natural causes, the horrific consequences are the product of corporate malfeasance and government neglect.
The most devastating impact had been in Northern California, where the Camp Fire largely destroyed the rural town of Paradise, population 26,000. The official death toll now stands at 81. Hundreds remain missing, with many likely to have perished in the blaze. Search and rescue teams continue to sift through the debris for remains from a fire that burned hot enough in parts to destroy bone. Millions of people face unknown health consequences from widespread air pollution.
With little to no warning, families had to flee the rapidly advancing flames only to find roads blocked by overwhelming traffic. Some managed to escape on foot, others died in their cars as the flames overtook them, while many never made it out of their homes. The lucky ones have still lost almost everything, forced to live as domestic refugees in crowded and unhealthy shelters or makeshift tent cities.

Trump says seeing the devastation of the wildfires in California hasn't changed his opinion on climate change. 🇺🇸 "No, no. I have a strong opinion. I want great climate, we're going to have that, & we're going to have forests that are very safe... that is happening as we speak." @cnn
IT’S LIKE TOTAL DEVASTATION 🔥🇺🇸 "The men and women that are fighting this fire are incredible." #PresidentTrump speaks to reporters in Chico, #California, where the state's most destructive wildfire, the #CampFire, has killed at least 71 people in the area. @cnn
RAKE THE FLOORS 🤦🏼♀️Trump: "You gotta take care of the floors. You know the floors of the forest, very important... I was with the President of Finland... he called it a forest nation and they spent a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things and they don't have any problem." @cnn
NEW: Pres. Trump arrives in California to tour the devastation from the wildfires, with plans to meet with firefighters and state officials. @abcnews #cher
