“Sadly once again communities in California are experiencing historically devastating wildfires in both the Northern and Southern parts of the state,” a Facebook post from All Within My Hands reads. “All Within My Hands has made a $50,000 donation each to the North Valley Community Foundation and the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation; both agencies provide service to victims at evacuation centers and other much-needed relief.”
