As many of you know my amazing superwoman of a friend Gia has been accepting donations of all kinds to take from Dallas to Houston and surrounding areas to help out those in need from Harvey. She plans to make at least 3 trips total, as she will also be transporting those who need a ride to a safe place (FURRY FRIENDS TOO). She will still be accpeting donations of all kinds but really need the gas funds more than anything at the moment. She is driving her 72 passenger revamped school bus to and from, so the gas is going to be costly. Here is a note from her on her estimate :
I have been uncomfortable with this all day but since people have already given me $20 in gas money here and there for my efforts of transporting my bus full of supplies to Houston I'm going to say this out loud:
we have the capacity to transport 210 gallons of fuel down there. Prices of gas (where it can be found in houston) have already started to rise. I am not asking for your money but if you want to put it in my gas tank then we will accept that too. Most of the gas we are bringing down will be for our friends rescue boats. And in case you were wondering 210 x $2.50 = $525 one way we still have to make it back home!!
So take that and calculate it x 3 round trips plus excess for friend's boats.
I know there has been an overwhelming amount of support nationwide for these victims and it really makes my heart oh so happy! I also know that many of you have most likely donated already, as have I...BUT if you have even another $5 to spare, it would be such a big help. That would be 2 gallons of gas!!
She has already put all of her own funds possible into it
(no shocker there).
