In October 2017, the team at Postman created a collection in response to the wildfires that devastated Northern California. Now Southern California is battling ferocious wildfires, with no end in sight.
The fires have brought tragedy, and caused hazardous ash and smoke pollution in the surrounding areas. Postman wants Southern Californians and the rest of the world to stay aware of the air quality in their surroundings.
This collection gets air quality updates from the AccuWeather API and posts them to Twitter according to your account and location specifications. We have also included links to local charities that can assist families and emergency workers in Southern California.
Many families in Southern California are in need of food, clothing, and additional supplies. We’ve collected a few resources for those who want to aid these communities.
Creating over a dozen wildfire relief fundraisers online, tailored to specific victims and families who have lost their homes or suffered great losses.
