As the devastation of the California wildfires continues (with 44 people reported dead as of Tuesday, November 13, according to The New York Times), Bethenny Frankel is doing her part to help. The Real Housewives of New York City philanthropist is the founder of B Strong, a foundation that has also assisted with relief efforts for natural disasters in Guatemala, Puerto Rico, and North Carolina. For the California crisis, the B Strong team is on site to help humans and animals alike. 

In a November 12 Twitter post, Bethenny shared: "BStrong is on the ground to determine precisely where to expend our efforts. In addition to supplies and cash cards, pets are a particular focus on this mission. What a crazy past year this has been. Hopefully, the tide turns soon." 


The Skinnygirl mogul also shared an update on Instagram Stories. "Hi, everyone. I'm definitely not asleep on the California fires and the relief," she said. "We are getting sorted and organized, we have a drop point, we have vans, and we are getting the lay of the land."
