We at NBIAA are devastated by the unfolding of recent events in Butte County that has impacted so many lives. We want to express our sincere condolences to all the individuals facing a great loss from the horrific fire in the town of Paradise and other parts of Butte County in Northern California.
The Butte County fire is the most destructive fire in California's history and has scorched more than 151,000 acres and left 79 dead plus many more missing. We also send our prayers to those affected by the Woolsey fire in Malibu that destroyed more than 96,000 acres and has affected many lives.
We want to share an important fundraising campaign lead by our 2 NBIAA members, Mithun Vora and Romil Rambia. Through their unrelenting efforts and your financial contributions, NBIAA will be able to help 10 devasted families directly impacted by the fire. NBIAA is a 501x3 nonprofit and your kindness comes with the added benefit of a tax deduction.
Here is the link to the campaign where you can donate
