Oh ... Really?

Strengthen The Good: Hurricane Charley Disaster Relief Fund

The first Strengthen the Good charity has been chosen.

Here’s the issue: a burning charitable need at this moment is relief for people affected by Hurricane Charley. And while I very much want to highlight a Charley micro-charity, the fact is that the need right now is macro … incredibly macro. Fundamental needs: housing … water … huge quantities of baby formula … needs that are best met by macro charities such as the Red Cross, the Christian Contractors Association, and Salvation Army, and it’s going to be this way for some time.

But I also think I’ve found something you can get behind and feel good about: The Gulf Coast Community Foundation Of Venice Hurricane Charley Disaster Relief Fund.

The Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice has created the Hurricane Charley Disaster Relief Fund. The foundation board of directors has voted to match contributions to this fund up to $100,000. That's right ... your $1 donation is $2. Got a tenspot to spare? They'll make it a twenty! In a situation as disastrous as the aftermath of a devastating hurricane, every dollar counts.

Don't just fight evil ... Strengthen the Good.
