Donate to the BC Fires Appeal

Communities in British Columbia are experiencing the effects of hundreds of active fires across the province and evacuation orders have been issued. Many people are in need of urgent assistance.

Donations to the Canadian Red Cross will be used for immediate and ongoing relief efforts, long term recovery, resiliency and preparedness for future events in British Columbia and Yukon, including consequential events related to the fires.

From August 15 until October 12, 2018, the Province of British Columbia will match all donations made by individuals who are residents of B.C, up to $20 million.

"When man finally learns to control the elements... When the winds will be quiet and the earth cannot be torn apart...When there will be no loneliness... no destitution... no war... When the last hungry man, woman or child is fed... Only then will there be no need for the Red Cross."
