CHRISTMAS DEVASTATION IN TEXAS
Organized by: J George
We want to raise as much money, as possible, for the people of Texas, surviving a horrific group of tornadoes.
The children and their families, in Texas, have been struck with a number of devastating tornadoes during the last few days. Some areas were hit with devastating winds - as high as 175 to 200 miles per hour.
People have been killed. Homes have been totally destroyed. Many businesses are gone. Dozens of people have been injured - some critically. Family cars have landed atop other cars. Trucks have been blown off the road. Many places do not have any electricity during this cold time of the year. Others will be in need of clean drinking water.
Think about the people left homeless in Texas and the children, who just opened their Christmas presents. How many of the children were able to save any of their gifts? The families torn apart. We can help them! By donating to this cause the money will be spent in Texas. Yes, other states were also hit hard. However, it is doubtful we can raise enough money, in time, to meet the needs of the people in other states. Also, there are other fund raisers going on, directed at helping people in the other states.
What will this money be used for? It is our intent to work with several groups in Texas to help determine the people most in need of assistance. We will particularly ask the agencies to identify families with children. Hopefully we will raise enough funds to help the family while also giving belated Christmas gifts to the youngsters.
Everyone should know that this will be a 'hands-on' assistance program. We want to help those really in need. Perhaps some of the family members, of those killed in the devastation, will need our help in order to bury their beloved. Some families might need groceries in order to survive. Others might need assistance with doctor bills. It is a great feeling, particularly at this time of year, to be able to spread some cheer to those people seeing a difficult future.
If you can donate a dollar, ten, a hundred, or more, you can rest assured it will be put to a very worthwhile cause aimed at this horrendous devastation. You will be able to sleep better tonight knowing you have participated in this cause.
PLEASE GIVE OUR FUNDRAISER YOUR ATTENTION. HOPEFULLY YOU CAN SEE WHAT GOOD WE CAN DO!
