Then I realized I WAS DOING THE SAME THING, complaining, about them complaining! That's when I stopped... I picked up the phone and called Rob Holston who is the Coordinator for the local Hurricane Katrina Relief Event here in Ketchikan.....and I volunteered. What about you? Yes you.....reading this...have you volunteered? We have an event planned for Saturday September 24th from 6 to 10 PMat the Ted Ferry Civic Center.
We need more volunteers, from simple things like taking tickets at the door, to setting up for the event. We will be getting the tickets from the printer in the next day or two and we'll be selling them all over town. So here it is.....how many of you have complained, even once, about how our country helps people all over the world.....but not here at home? WELL HERE IT IS, YOUR CHANCE TO HELP PEOPLE RIGHT HERE IN OUR OWN COUNTRY. Just do it! Come on Ketchikan, think of what it would be like to lose everything! Try to go without your cell phone and car for just one day and you'll be chewing your arm off! These people have nothing! Can't we all just donate a little time, one day or more to help? We all feel so safe in our little paradise. If we are so fortunate, can't we do a little something for those who aren't?
VOLUNTEER, JUST DO IT! See the new link on the front Page of SITNEWS. The purple box on the right side titled "Ketchikan Katrina Hurricane Relief Effort" for more information.
