NAPA AND SONOMA COUNTIES – The dedicated fire crews working in Napa County and Sonoma County have managed to contain the Tubbs fire, as well as other fires as of October 31st. Though the fire is contained, it still managed to claim at least 21 lives and burn more than 36,000 acres of land, leaving communities devastated. Over 6,000 structures — including over 4,600 homes — have been destroyed in the blaze.
Now is the time to support the survivors of the Tubbs fire. In the next few months, Books For Change will be helping the Sonoma and Napa counties as its primary cause. Our upcoming content will relay information on what you can do to help those recovering from the disaster, and what charities are leading the charge in relief. Be sure to look out for links to donation pages, and please spread awareness and news on social media accounts. Every little bit of engagement provides hope for those who have lost so much.
We encourage you to reach out and help the communities that have been affected through these links:

The reality is that California has been ravaged by wildfires in multiple counties. 21 major wildfires burned over 240,000 acres of land. Many have lost their lives, and thousands of buildings have been destroyed. Firefighters have been fighting these blazes for the better part of a month. Now, people are looking to rebuild and move past the destruction. Together, we can help the people of California.
