Alberta Fires - help for evacuees
“I cannot thank you enough for the help, compassion and love you have showed my family and community in this time of crisis! You are made up of some amazing, wonderful people.”  
Dear supporter, 
Since yesterday, we have received countless messages like the one above. Reading them has been deeply moving for all of us.   
I wanted to share this with you because these words of gratitude are not just for the Red Cross – they are for you and thousands of other Canadians who gave so generously following the devastating wildfires.    
Together, we are making a real difference to those who need our help.   
As you may already know, your overwhelming support is now providing $50 million in financial assistance to people forced to evacuate, many who left with almost nothing. Through direct cash transfers, individuals and families are getting vital help to meet their immediate needs during this incredibly difficult and stressful time.   
The road ahead
Of course, this is only the start. With your support, we have mobilized more than 600 volunteers who are working tirelessly on the ground to reach out to evacuees. Together, we will remain by their side for as long as help is needed.      
From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for the remarkable generosity you have shown towards fellow Canadians who are going through unimaginable tragedy. 

Conrad Sauvé
President & CEO
