Hurricane Odile Relief Effort
October 3, 2014
Hurricane Odile devastated a large portion of Baja California Sur, destroying thousands of homes and leaving tens of thousands destitute. Hilarious Givers is privileged to be able to step up and bring relief to many of those affected. We are coordinating with Club Dust, Feed My Starving Children, Princess Cruises, Hon. Dip Marco Antonio Novelo Osuna, and others too numerous to mention.
One of our ministry partners, Club Dust, is rebuilding neighborhoods destroyed by Hurricane Odile. Their relief effort will provide shelter to dozens of families who are without homes, and will prevent an even larger disaster. We have committed to providing 500 mattresses, in addition to 11,000 pounds of fortified rice and soy nutrition, toward that effort.
Today, the first load of 65 mattresses left San Diego for the journey south to Cabo San Lucas. Many of the roads to Cabo San Lucas have been washed out, bridges destroyed, and ground transportation deemed impassible. But we should never underestimate the resourcefulness of, or to try to discourage, a big-rig driver. Our supplies will be delivered to those in need regardless of the challenges.
Contributions are earnestly solicited to defray costs in this endeavor. All donations are deductible pursuant to IRC Code 501(c)(3)
