2. Lucky Ones Ranch [Sacramento, California] - The Lucky Ones Ranch is a non-profit animal sanctuary in the Vacaville / Sacramento area of California. The Ranch was co-founded by Thao & Vince, a husband / wife duo, along with their awesome team of volunteers. The Lucky Ones Ranch provides a forever home to animals who have been neglected, abused and/or were no longer wanted. On August 19, 2020, the Lucky Ones Ranch was completely burned to the ground by the LNU Lightning Complex Fire. The Lucky Ones Ranch has been fortunate to find a new home in Sacramento. All funds donated to the ranch go to the care and feed of the animals.

3. NCW Fire Relief Fund [North Central Washington] - The NCW Fire Relief fund supports the long-term recovery efforts for individuals families that have been impacted by wildfire across North Central Washington.
