My home state of Colorado has been devastated by wildfires. My vacation this summer was semi-cancelled with a fire closing a local Boy Scout camp. We found another campsite for a few boys for a couple days, but the weeklong camp wasn’t available. There have been floods in the East as well that have killed power and ruined homes.
The Red Cross does a tremendous amount of good for people in these situations, but they depend on donations. Brandie Tarvin is trying to help the Red Cross with donations and started a small contest. If you donate to their relief fund, and send Brandie a screen shot, she’ll enter you in a drawing to win some donated prizes.
Take a moment and think about how lucky you are in your life. If you haven’t been through a disaster, think about what it would be like if you couldn’t go home tonight.
If you think it’s worth donating to help others, take a moment and donate to the Red Cross and then enter Brandie’s contest. Whether you win or not, I’d like to think it was worth it.
