If you're on the mainland, like me, donating is the most impactful way to help those affected by the wildfires on Maui. Make sure that your money actually makes it to the people you're trying to help by choosing an organization that's well-established (like the United Way or Red Cross) or endorsed by the state or local government (like the ones I've included below). You can also check to find out if your donation is tax deductible and how much of the money you donate will make it to the cause you're supporting.
