                                   HARVEY & IRMA

The recent horrific scenes in the Houston area and other parts of the Southwest are a tragedy for those affected. We are sure there are many of our club members that have been impacted, a loss of cars and a general hardship for our brethren. The impending scary predictions of the path that Irma will take and the damage that it will surely cause in Puerto Rico and the East Coast is immensely concerning for us.

More experienced disaster survival organizations need to take the lead, but our national board does not want to simply stand by and do nothing. While it is hard for us to know what to do, we must do something. As events unfold over the next days, we want to be proactive as an organization that cares about our members and all of society. We will do our best to work with our regions and chapters in the coming months to see if there are things we can do.

While we cannot always come to the rescue or fund every need, the circumstances with having two hurricanes hit our country in such a short span and the devastation they have caused and potentially will cause makes this a special time to do what we can. 

So, our first step is to help raise money for families that have been hit by these storms. While we may not be able to raise a huge amount of money, we are sure that every little bit helps.  So, your national board is donating $5,000 on behalf of its membership to a GoFundMe site. If you would like to join us in this effort, please make your donations here:   https://www.gofundme.com/aaca-harvey-and-irma-fund.

By using Charity Navigator, we will donate the money to those charities that will put the vast majority of the money into actual use for those affected by the storms. AACA’s executive committee will ensure that the donations are used for the maximum effect. 

Please consider joining us as we try to make a small difference.

I am sure our members are directly contributing to other charities of their choice so that is terrific. Giving is very personal.

I do want to thank those that have chosen to trust us to make sure the money goes to places where it really can make a difference. Every donation both large and small is equally important and we thanks all who have contributed.

Also, some people have asked if they could send a check to us and of course we can do that but make sure you note on the check for Harvey & Irma! I just heard that a man in NEW ZEALAND is sending a check for $500!!! How nice.

To the anonymous donor who gave a very generous donation we wish we had the right words to thank you but we certainly appreciate your generosity.
