UPDATE: WUWT Camp Fire Relief Fund

Guest Plea by Kip Hansen

 

featured_image_updateUPDATE:   We are ½ way to our original $10,000 goal. Readers are being exceptionally generous.  Please, help us roll this campaign up the hill.  We are helping people who have lost everything.

Anthony is alive and well and helping where he can — he has temporarily passed the Editorship of WUWT to Charles the Moderator so that he can concentrate on this charitable effort.   Your donations will go to help people burned out in the Camp Fire with Anthony on the ground  identifying urgent needs. 

In a telephone call just minutes ago, he has warned me that the needs are far greater than first thought as the  true magnitude of the disaster is unveiled. 

THANK YOU to all you have donated so far — invite your friends, family and neighbors to help — share the GoFundMe link on Facebook and Twitter.

There is now a Friends of WUWT Camp Fire Relief fund, receiving donations through the 501(c)3 not-for-profit charitable organization, the Family-to-Family Project, Inc.

There are lots of people needing help as a result of the Camp Fire.  Lots of relief is headed that that.  We can make sure that our donations go to relieve specifically those families that are Friends of WUWT — we can help take care of our own.  The Family-to-Family Project, operated by my wife and myself, will direct your dollars to those friends in need at the recommendation of our man on the spot.

Please donate as much and as often as you can.

Kip,
I don’t have a Paypal account and try not to use a credit card on the internet. Do you have an address where I can send a check? Who should I make it out to?

Honestly people, this is a way to make a difference, even if you can afford just a little. Please donate.

I would help, but not through GoFundMe. They too arbitrarily rejected donations to a campaign i had to help my sister in law. And, refuse to say why.

All those involved with the fires are suffering! selecting a few supporters is just not a humane thing to do.

I am appalled.

this is like a few christian ministries after the tsunami in Aceh refusing to treat other faiths unless they converted.
Are you trying the same thing here?
Trying to get more people to deny AGW or else no help.

One word – inhuman

kip you say:
In this case, we have a friend on the spot who has been out in the fire zone reporting on it for the local TV — he has seen first-hand the destruction and seen the people, many of who he knows personally.

He is directing the funds from this small effort to help people that have lost their homes who he knows or has encountered in the last few days.

This is still inhumane and anyway is not in agreement with your headline text.

All deserve aid not just a select few who you know or who consider AGW to be a fraud.

This may be the way of current American society but it should not be the way of humanity, sorry.
