Strengthen The Good

Strengthen The Good starts off the week with their first charity: THE GULF COAST COMMUNITY OF VENICE. Hurricane Charley Disaster Relief Fund.

What can be done for the vicitims of Hurricane Charley while they wait for help from some of the macro-chariites? To help them feel safe and secure once again? As Strenthten the Good states:

Here’s the issue: a burning charitable need at this moment is relief for people affected by Hurricane Charley. And while I very much want to highlight a Charley micro-charity, the fact is that the need right now is macro … incredibly macro. Fundamental needs: housing … water … huge quantities of baby formula … needs that are best met by macro charities such as the Red Cross, the Christian Contractors Association, and Salvation Army, and it’s going to be this way for some time.

Strengthen the good has found this charity:
