Who Are We?

So glad you asked...

We are McMaster Student in Support of the Canadian Red Cross. 

This year, we chose to advocate for a more local cause, and picked Canadian wildfires. This past summer saw some of the worst wildfires in Canadian history and notably in Ontario as smoke could be seen across the skies for kilometers.

The Canadian Red Cross has mobilized its resources North as many have lost loved ones and their homes. We are looking to support the Canadian Red Cross and their mission to relocate and reintegrate community members.


However, we are also interested in various reforestation efforts to ensure our Canadian Forests can thrive for years to come. For more information on sustainable forest growth visit or donate to:
