I’ve decided that I should read greater meaning into the fact that the donation button didn’t want to work for me. Those of you who wanted to donate money to keep me on the online community, thank you — I’m touched. However, there are far more people out there who need your money and generosity. My family and I have power, a solid roof, blankets, and a vehicle. I have the certainty of work tomorrow; my kids know they’ll be going back to school.
Please, donate the money to the Red Cross. I certainly intend to. And while we’re at it, let’s go donate some blood as well. I hate needles, but this is far bigger than one person’s phobias.
If anyone knows of any worthwhile food banks or charities who will take food, blankets, and other essential supplies, let me know.
