THANKSGIVING FOR PARADISE - A Fundraiser for Camp Fire Victims

The 2018 CA Wildfire Season has been devastating!  QWR believes it is important for the trail recreation community to do its part to help victims of the Camp Fire which destroyed lives, homes, and property in the Greater Paradise area. 

There are both immediate and long-term needs of those displaced by the Camp Fire.  While donated clothing and other supplies are appreciated, QWR has surveyed a number of 1st responders and others in leadership positions and the single most important way for OHVers to help right now is with hard cash donations to effective non-profit charities that have a proven track record.

Simply put, fire victims need fiscal support to purchase fuel for cars, pickups, and generators.  They also need the ability to purchase items such as generators, tools, clean underwear, socks, and other sundries.   Warm meals are important too!

For our THANKSGIVING FOR PARADISE fundraiser, QWR will use 100% of donations it receives to support the ongoing and upcoming relief efforts of the Salvation Army, Rotary, and the Ranger Foundation - a 501 (c)(3) charitable non-profit founded in 2017.  The Ranger Foundation is supporting the state park employees and retirees affected by the recent wildfires.

To make an online donation please go to the link below and note in the instruction box that it is for Camp Fire relief efforts.

To send a donation via check, please make it out to Quiet Warrior Racing and note on the check that it is for the Camp Fire relief effort.  Mail check to: QWR, 555 Honey Lane, Oakley, CA, 94561

Thanks for your support of the fire relief efforts.  Your donations will make a huge difference in the lives of many people that lost everything.
