hurricaneviolet Posted September 7, 2017 Share Posted September 7, 2017 Anyone who has been paying attention to the news over the last couple of weeks has seen the devastation all over North America from Hurricane Harvey, the Northwest/Canadian Wildfires, and the looming Hurricane Irma. It's a very scary time for a lot of people who are hoping to stay safe and minimize damage to themselves, their loved ones, and their property. We have lots of HP'ers who live in affected areas, and we want to do our part to help! Rather than choosing a specific cause or organization to collect donations for, we are instead allowing you to choose your own cause to donate to directly. We have a limited supply of HP stickers to send to those who donate, or a free 2 week upgrades for those who don't get a sticker! Sticker availability is first come, first serve, and I will update this post once they have run out! Anyone who donates at least $10 USD (or other needed items, like food, clothing, or blood) between now and 9/14 to an organization directly helping those affected by Harvey, Irma, or the wildfires should send a screenshot or photo of their donation receipt to account #1 to claim their sticker or upgrade time. Not sure where to donate? There are lots of great organizations to choose from! Here are some suggestions: The American Red Cross (when you donate you can choose Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Harvey, or Disaster Relief which will provide relief to those affected by the wildfires), the Houston Humane Society (to help provide shelter and care for animals who were separated from their owners or hurt during the storm), or United Way of Houston. The New York Times has even more suggestions on where (and where not) to donate here. --------------------- Our fall layout is up!
