As wildfires blaze across the west coast, countless lives (both human and animal) have been changed forever, and firefighters are putting their lives on the line. Many people have been searching for ways to help, and now, jiu-jitsu apparel company Hyperfly is coming up with their own way to assist in these tough times, focusing on the families of fallen and injured firefighters in California.
The company, which is based in California, announced on social media that 10 percent of all their sales in September would be split between two different organizations: the California Fire Foundation (CFF) and the Wildland Firefighter Foundation (WFF).
