All donations raised by I.C.A.R.E will benefit the people who have been impacted by the Thomas Fire. This fundraiser is hosted by the Rotaract Club of Conejo Valley and represents the launch of I.C.A.R.E, a multi-club Rotaract initiative. I.C.A.R.E stands for Impacted Community Assistance Relief Effort. See below for more details about I.C.A.R.E.
After witnessing all the disasters in 2017, including the Thomas Fire in our own backyard, we were inspired to start a year-round disaster relief project. Typically, there is a large rush of aid immediately after a disaster, sometimes to the point where organizations may need to turn down a surplus of donated items. Unfortunately, many relief efforts tend to die down soon after the news coverage ends. We want to take a more sustainable approach to disaster relief by forming a network of Rotaract clubs around the world, committed to helping each other to provide more long-term financial assistance and help rebuild whenever disaster strikes in their home region. All funds raised will be sent to the club(s) nearest to the disaster, who will serve as the feet on the ground to get the money to where it is needed most in their communities.
