Tattoo shop donates ink for wildfire fundraiser

Some businesses are still looking for ways to help with wildfire relief. The Missing Piece held a special fundraiser just for that purpose.

It's usually quiet at The Missing Piece on Sundays, butthis Sunday, it was buzzingfor this event.

Its so important to give back and there are still people now, especially now, that are still being displaced from their homes and so many people still fighting so hard to get these fires under control, says Stephanie Goldsmith, the eventorganizer.

People got piercings, tattoos and haircuts at a deal.For some, they came because the fires affected them.

Brought my asthma back, says Sandi Osterman who got a tattoo. I have had trouble breathing for the last three weeks because of all the bad fires so I feel sorry for people that are on oxygen.

They can choose from six different tattoos specially designed for this fundraiser.



This is their special way of helping piece back together the many lives affected by the wildfires and appreciating the firefighters.

Thank you, Osterman says. I love you thank you so much. You guys are amazing and God bless you all.

The event raised $1,300. All proceeds are going toward wildfire relief funds.
