Sutton REALTORS® across Canada came together to show our commitment to community and donated a total of $52,428 for the #SuttonWildfireRelief and the Canadian Red Cross.
We personally want to thank all the Sutton REALTORS® who joined in on the #SuttonWildfireRelief campaign in support of our Fort McMurray colleagues and neighbours. Fort McMurray residents are now gearing up for phase 1 of the re-entry plan, scheduled to start on June 1st.
Your donations have helped provide accommodations, food, water and supplies to the Fort McMurray evacuees. More than 80,000 Albertans were forced to leave their homes in the largest fire-related evacuation in the province’s history.
But the work doesn’t stop here… Beyond meeting the immediate needs of evacuees, your donation will help those affected by this disaster not only today, but also in the weeks, months and even years ahead as they work to rebuild their lives.
Please donate to our Fort Mac fundraiser and your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar!

By now you have heard about the Fort McMurray wildfire, know that many people were evacuated from their homes, many houses burned down and residents still awaiting news for when they can return home. If you have donated already, perhaps you would be additionally generous to share this message to your friends and family. If you haven’t donated yet – please consider it, whether it’s goodwill, volunteerism, community or karma that drives you.
For now I’m heartened by the stories of humour and good spirits the evacuees and rescue workers have shared with us. With the fire’s devastation and the long road to rebuild ahead, to have a positive mindset is a most admirable thing. I hope that a donation, however large or small, let’s the people of Fort Mac know that we are thinking of them, and that our thoughts and prayers help them to know they are not alone.
A couple of my favourite stories so far:
The one where the RCMP find and save Marshall, beer drinking pig, and reconnect him with his family through Twitter.
Fort McMurray wildfire evacuee forced to leave pet pig behind, finds out he’s OK
The one where bargain hunters can find a smokin’ hot deal in Abasand
The one where some high flyin’ pets were evacuated in high style
