For the past couple of days, you’ve no doubt been glued to the television, YouTube and social media watching as devastating fires rip through Fort McMurray and now surrounding neighbourhoods.
Depending where you live, it can be hard to help. These towns are remote and in most cases, still unaccessible. Obviously, donating to the Red Cross is a fantastic way to help. Especially now that both the Alberta and Canadian government have said they would match donations. Meaning your $10 instantly turns into $30.
