Starting today, the Big Ten Network will MATCH public donations (up to $25,000) made to the flood recovery efforts at the University of Iowa Flood Relief Fund. The University of Iowa is in Iowa City and since it is my alma mater and hometown area, this cause is quite personal for me. It is going to take a lot of money to clean up all the areas hit hard from the flood of 2008.
Plus, through June 30, they are donating 100% of their purchase proceeds towards the flood relief! So come on, Hawkeyes, Buckeyes, Wolverines, Ilini, Wildcats, Gophers, Spartans, Hoosiers, Boilermakers, Nittany Lions, and Badgers–Show your team spirit and help a university in need! (And if you’re not a Big Ten fan, consider buying a Hawkeye item–we’re the best fans!)
Won’t you please consider making a donation? DONATE HERE TO GET THE MATCHING FUNDS. Your donation is tax-deductible.
100% of their proceeds from purchases will be donated at THE BIG TEN NETWORK STORE for purchases made through June 30, 2008.
Your generous support will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
As a developing practitioner of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), I have seen that it does, indeed, produce results! Take a look at this video about a new film and consider buying the documentary DVD so you, too, can learn how to try it on everything!
You can order the DVD HERE
For every order of the DVD, you will get a free e-Book called 15 Ways to Health, Happiness and Abundance and a free copy of the DVD will be donated to a school, jail, or other social agency for the greater good!
As a native Iowan who has 2 kids, my mother and a huge extended family in the areas directly affected by the flooding, I have been pretty preoccupied with getting the most up-to-date and accurate news I could find during this past week. I have to give a million thanks of gratitude and appreciation to the Cedar Rapids television station, KCRG, for providing Iowans and people far away like me with live, streaming coverage on the internet. I am so very grateful for their decision to stay on the air and be of service to so many, for so long. Thank you, KCRG!
With that said, people that know me have been asking about how to help. There are the usual emergency responders, such as the American Red Cross and Salvation Army, and I’ll leave it up to you to decide where to give. I thought I’d provide a few links that are being given out now, where there will be opportunities to give a bit more locally or actually go and volunteer. These sites are also providing information to the flood victims, so they are constantly updating their information. I will add to this list in another posting, as information becomes available to me.
I know that there are a group of Iowans in New York City who are already planning on coming together this week to raise funds for the cause. I’ll keep you posted on that after our first meeting.
Here are some other possibilities:
For the area known as the Corridor (the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids area) go to:
The Flood 2008 Fund at the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation
To assist The University of Iowa, go to: The University of Iowa Foundation (or) Give to Iowa
