After the devastation of Hurrican Irene hit Puerto Rico in 2017, business speaker and Real Housewives of New York reality TV star Bethenny Frankel took matters into her own hands. She was shocked by the lack of aid being provided to the victims of natural disasters, so she founded the bstrong program to give private aid to the global community.
Now she is focusing bstrong’s efforts on the victims of the California wildfires. Bstrong has partnered with the Global Empowerment Mission to provide fast and effective aid to those who have been affected by the fires. Teams will be delivering cash cards and aid supplies to Southern Californians as early as this upcoming Friday, November 16, and will be supporting the Paradise area by Monday, November 19. As a California based company, BigSpeak Speakers Bureau wants to thank all the efforts that have been put into keeping our home state safe. If you’d like to help, you can donate at the bstrong website to provide victims with cash cards and you can drop off donations at 20463 Hart St., Winnetka, CA 91306.
