“With wildfires devastating California, many of us want to do something to help. Here at 3 Fish Studios, we’ve put together a bundle of some of our artwork, created to honor the spirit of the Golden State that we know and love - a place of beauty, kindness, and resilience.
Each Wildfire Relief Bundle contains an 8x10 archival digital print of our iconic “I Love You California” Poppy Bear, a set of note cards featuring our “From the Ashes” poppy image, and a postcard featuring our “Hero Bear”, honoring the brave men and women on the front line of these fires.

The bundle costs $35, and 100% of the money raised will be donated to help relief efforts in California. Food banks, temporary shelters, and other community services will benefit directly from these funds. Last year we raised $100,000. Can we do it again this year?” - @3fishstudios
