Hurricane Fund update
Hello everyone, we are still wrapping up the loose ends from the 2022 Immunolin World Championships, and we would like to thank everyone for helping to make this a memorable event!!
As you know, we were very lucky not to have been wiped out by the hurricane. Our efforts to raise $5,000 for the Hurricane victims of South Florida was surpassed. We are still in the process of collecting some of the funds, but we look to be close to $6,500 raised during the Raffle and auction effort.
If you had some charges that you have not paid yet for your extra spins and death defying Wheel of Desire punishment, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 727-793-8743.
We would also like to thank those who pledged additional money for the cause. This is an effort that was made possible by EVERYONE… so THANK YOU ALL!
After getting input from several people as to how they would like the money distributed, we have decided to split the effort. Half we be going DIRECTLY to victims. We plan to go down to the affected area and hand some of the money out in sums of $300-$500. We are in the process of working with a few places to vet some potential recipients.
The other half of the money will be going to one or more of the boots-on-the-ground operations who are helping the victims. Our goal is to donate that portion of the money to a charity who has all or almost all going out to the victims.
These decision to distribute in the manner described was done as a result of people who responded with their opinions. The opinions were pretty much split down the middle. When we complete this effort we will be letting you know who got the direct help and what organizations were the recipients.
I think that the money raised will truly do some good! THANK YOU AGAIN! This will make a difference to many people who have been devastated by Hurricane Ian. It will not fix all that is broken but it will help heal in many ways!
