BENEFITING: HUMAN RESOURCES COUNCIL INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 14, 2015
As many of you may or may not know, my 23rd birthday is right around the corner. This will be the 3rd year in a row that I will be hosting a "Birthday Fundraiser" or "Birthday for a Cause". This year my cause is to help fund relief for victims of the Butte Fire. The Butte fire which has effected the areas of Amador and Calaveras Counties, has burned over 71,660 acres, displaced 10,000 thousand people, destroyed 818 buildings, and had over 4,600 fire fighters on duty. The surrounding cities of the Butte Fire area (including San Joaquin County) have opened their arms to evacuees and are in need of assistance via donations of funds or items. My goal is to raise $500 (or more) for The Resource Connection- an organization that helps to engage and empower those in the communities of Amador and Calaveras. the Resource Center has started aiding those effected by the Butte Fire, and will continue to do so through their programs and extra efforts.
Between now and my birthday on October 14th, I would appreciate any donation you can afford, whether it be $1 or $50. It's everyone's job to help those in such desperate times of need. Homes, posessions, and comfort have been lost. At a time like this, nothing is more comforting than compassion.
