Re: Did New Orleans Catastrophe Have to Happen?Sep 8th, 2005
Busy day with work, but I did have time to do some hurricane help.
Stopped at a local pet store and told the owner about a refugee that has a bunny in a pet taxi. (Our 'adopted' family has three dogs and a rabbit) The store owner donated a large rabbit cage to the family.
Had a fellow business person contact me with a fund raising idea. We are coordinating a charity golf tournament. All funds (checks) will be made out DIRECTLY to the relief effort here. In one day we had the local golf course donate the course for free along with golf carts. 100% will go towards huricane relief since there will be no expense to host the tournament. We also secured a volunteer commitee just this afternoon that is experienced with volunteering for golf tournament fundraisers (this community has several a year for different charities). Everyone is eager to help.
Just some more positive news for a change.
