BENEFITING: American Red Cross Centex Chapter
In the past week fires have burned much of Bastrop County in Central Texas. Thousands of people have completely lost their homes and everything in them. Hundreds of acres of protected land has burned. There are a lot of people and animals suffering and I intend to help as much as I can.
This is a "sponsored volunteerism" project. I will be spending as much free time as I can helping out down in Bastrop County: as I do so I would like you all to support me in one of two ways. Either join the team and come help me, or make cash donations to help out. If you wish to make a donation of food/clothing/supplies please contact me and I will guide you in the right direction. There are tons of organizations organizing such support already, though, so cash helps the most to keep them going.
Donations here will go to the American Red Cross of Central Texas., The activities of the ARC should be fairly well know to most folks, but if you want to know where the money goes check out this website: http://www.centex.redcross.org/general.asp?SN=14324&OP=14457&IDCapitulo=F9ZLZNZ3KD
I'm setting a very modest goal here: it will barely make a dent in the suffering. But this is a short-term project, so please everyone pich in and then we will assess what long-term needs exist and how we can help that!
Thank you so much!
