Donate to BC Wild Fires

Posted on August 15, 2017 by Sunny South News

For the past few months we heard in the news of the BC Wild Fires that originated at William’s Lake, BC and has mushroomed from 161 fires down to 125 fires to date. I felt very sad when the people who carelessly throw out their cigarette butts on the side of the road and is ignited in the dry grass. We must also be more careful when camping and put the fires out.
I have contacted the Canadian Red Cross to contribute to the BC Wild Fires Fundraiser and they approved my request. I am asking the public to listen to my 12 poems on UTUBE select Whispering North480p, and donate any amount to http://www.redcross.ca the Red Cross will likely submit a receipt. Last week Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, visited the towns where the BC Wild Fires began especially at William’s Lake, Revelstoke, Vancouver and Victoria. The Prime Minister and BC Premier John Horgan also took an aerial tour of the fire zone
in BC’s central Interior on board a Canadian Forces Chinook helicopter. At times the smoke from the surrounding fires was so thick, the ground below was barely visible. We can relate to the thick smoke at Lethbridge and Coaldale when the smoke was so rank I didn’t go outdoors at all. Prime Minister Trudeau, suggested that the people donate funds to the BC Wild Fire cause and the Federal Government will match their donations.
