Jaspers Darlin's

A Request from an Affiliate and Something to Help the Fandom

Labels:
Many of you know about the Texas wildfires. We here at the Jasper's Darlins always try to be involved with charity efforts throughout the fandom and especially those that impact other Darlins or one of our affiliates. We recently received the following from Ysar with The Twilight Awards, a longtime affiliate. Please read on and if you can, donate to the Red Cross or another organization to help the victims of the wildfires.

Thanks!

Love,
The Jasper's Darlins


Please help me spread the word that donations to the Red Cross are desperately needed to help the victims of the Texas wildfires.  Most of the fires are completely out of control, several miles wide, and jumping rivers & highways.  Tens of thousands of acres have burned and hundreds of homes have been lost in the Austin area, while dozens more burn around the state.  The attached pic is the area where I grew up -- that single fire has burned for two days now and is still 0% contained despite 1.2 million gallons of water being dropped.

Red Cross Links are listed in this post:

These fires are not burning out in unpopulated areas -- they are burning through subdivisions, schools, business, and even one of the local zoos, and several in our fandom have been forced to pack their cars and run.  Please help if you can.

I think this is one of the areas that is being helped out with @Fandom4Wildfire So if you do donate, you will get their compilation as well. More incentive to help those in need.
