It’s been a devastating wildfire season for California, as the state has suffered the largest amount of burned acreage recorded in history. The widespread fires have taken nearly 100 lives, left almost 1,000 people still unaccounted for, and burned over 13,000 homes, business, and other permanent structures. The state of emergency is ongoing, and The Revivalists have announced their part in Supplying Aid To Victims of Emergency (SAVE).
Last week, as the New Orleans-based octet was supposed to be celebrating the release of their brand new album, Take Good Care, they instead directed their concern toward the California wildfires and opened up a limited supply of t-shirts to benefit the victims of the natural disaster. All proceeds fro the shirts’ sales were donated directly to the California Fire Foundation’s SAVE program. After selling out in less than 24 hours, The Revivalists are once again offering sales on a limited supply of the “Revive: California Tee” shirts with the same intention.
As the band explained to fans, “We’ve been closely following stories of our fans, team, and residents of California enduring these tragic fires. It’s been nothing short of amazing watching many of you go out of your way to take care of those directly effected.”
They continued, “We also want to help, so we will be raising money for the California Fire Foundation via donating all proceeds from the Revive: California Tee sales. Please join us in supporting the victims, firefighters and volunteers on the ground currently dealing with this head on.”
