Everyone reading this blog will know about the horrifying destruction happening in Fort McMurray. As of Tuesday morning, the wildfire had spread to cover 229,000 hectares. This is an area bigger than the size of Edmonton.
Many individuals and families who fled posted pictures and videos of the fire practically licking their vehicles as they drove out of Fort McMurray. Most of these people will lose everything. Homes. Vehicles. Possessions. Memories.

Amidst the tragedy and loss, Canadians are responding. From renters on AirBnB offering their places free of charge, to a wedding happening in Toronto despite losing the dress in the fire, to relief from the Red Cross because of multiple donations across the country. There is no question: We are the True North strong and free.
Colorworks is proud to have donated to help employees and families in the area. If you are able to donate to the Canadian Red Cross the link to send funds is below. The Trudeau Government has also pledged to match all contributions. Any amount to bring more relief to those affected by this disaster is immensely appreciated. Please know – the Canadian Red Cross is the best option for any donations. They will see that funds are allocated ethically and to the places and people who are in greatest need.
Thanks for tuning in this week. Catch you next time on PMS!
