Joplin Tornado Relief Effort Update - Jun 15th, 2011
I am completely amazed and humbled by the huge response from the disc golf community. The donations that have come in have been from all over the nation. The contributions have come from individuals, clubs, and disc companies. The support fo the 5 club members has absolutely blown me away. For all of you I say thank you on behalf of all of them!
Contributions continue to come in and many have chosen to give anonymously. I do want to list the states that donations have come from. I may miss some because a few of the Pay Pal donations that were given didn't have an address and a few packages had no return address, but here is the list: Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Oregon, New Mexico, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Tennessee, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, and Wisconsin. If you don't see your state and you helped shoot me an e mail, and I'll add it.
The JDGC and I are working on exact totals but I know we have in the neighborhood of $2500 to $3000 in cash. On top of this there has been discs, clothes bags, and anything else you can think of disc related that has been given as well. For the overwhelming support, again I Thank You. It is awesome to see the Disc Golf community pull together even closer like a family!
