Most of you know, Montana is on fire. Over 600,000 acres of Montana has burned. Exactly the opposite of Texas. So why I am I fundraising for Montana? First off- it’s my home state. Second- peoples livelihoods (cattle, wheat, corn, etc), their houses, and our beautiful public lands are being destroyed. Third- the government is doing hardly anything to help. But this is fine, because WE ARE Montana. We will stick together, and help EACH OTHER through thick and thin. When the fires first started, people from all over the state were sending hay, water, food, and other provisions to those in need. But now the fires are everywhere, and we need more help, with less provisions available.
Trendy & Organized is a Montana grown business, and we are trying to help. These decals are 5″x3″. The best part? $2.50 from EACH DECAL sold will go to the state of Montana. EVEN BETTER? The funds will go to VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENTS. More than HALF of the fire departments in the state of Montana are volunteer fire departments. They rarely have enough fire fighters, equipment, and funds, yet they are the ones out in the line of fire… literally.
Help us help our beautiful state. Whether you’re from Montana, live in Montana, love Montana, or just want to help, these decals are for you! If you prefer to just donate straight up to the fire departments of Montana, please donate to the Montana Red Cross or others listed on this great article by the Missoulian.
Please remember to ask what items are needed before donating blankets, childrens toys, and clothing. Donating “Stuff” generally goes unused, and money, water, and healthy snacks are always better.
WE ARE….. #MontanaStrong
