Feb. 8, 2010 - 3 Weeks
If ShelterBox is lucky, they will have delivered shelter for 100,000 people by the end of this week. If we fill these next 5 boxes, we will had contributed to 1 % of that effort. 100 boxes. We have been contacted by the ShelterBox people , they know who we are. It is my hope that we will get some info soon about where these boxes went . But their tracking page is still down, and hey, these are the hardest working people on the planet right now.
In the 3 weeks since we launched this effort we have " bought " 95 ShelterBoxes .
Shelter for 950 people.
And raised over $74,000.00
My Thanks to everyone of you, see the video clip on the left.
" Each box supplies an extended family of up to 10 people with a tent and lifesaving equipment to use while they are displaced or homeless. The contents are tailored depending on the nature and location of the disaster, with great care taken sourcing every item to ensure it is robust enough to be of lasting value.
The cost of a box is £490, including
delivery direct to those who need it. Each box bears its own unique
number so as a donor you can track your box all the way to its
recipient country via the website ".
So ........ Dear
friends, let us all raise just $10 bucks each , and pay for this
message in a bottle. That's 80 people. If we raise more , we buy us
another bottle shaped as a box. Let us all come together and tax
ourselves to help the saddest people we will ever see.
Your $10 bucks will will shelter 10 people, give them a place to rest, prepare meals, and begin to gain sense of place. Every time we find another 80 people we buy another box.
We shelter 1 person for $1 dollar for 6 months. You can follow that $10 bucks where ever it takes us.
Follow this box's journey at :
When we started this project , the one thing we focused on was
getting the most bang for our buck. We chose to contribute to the
British site because the fund raising fee was lower there, and the
cost of the Box was 25% lower.
This choice , however means that American donations to a British
charity are not tax deductible.
I this oversight is mine, and mine alone.
Should you wish to take advantage of the American tax deduction , please see this link :
