In a Time of Need…
The tornadoes that ripped through southern Indiana near the site of GeoWoodstock X in March 2012 left many dead or injured and many, many more without homes. Members of the local Geocaching community were not immune; some lost everything.
“What should we do?” we asked ourselves.
Since we cannot be there to help with the clean-up physically, we want to do the next best thing:
The TOM Creative Group is donating a portion of our proceeds from handling event management for GeoWoodstock X to the Clark County, Indiana chapter of the American Red Cross.Â
The local Red Cross accepts walk-inÂ donations and checksÂ mailed directly to their local chapter site.Â Business hours are 8:30a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.Â Â You canÂ mailÂ a check to the Chapter at:
Clark County Red Cross
1805 East 8th Street
Jeffersonville IN 47130 Â
We invite you to join us in supporting these devastated communities and hope that this small gesture will help in the recovery efforts.Â Remember as you plan your travels, that these are the same communities that are opening their arms to welcome the Geocaching world in just a few weeks.
So donate, if you can.
Shop locally on your trip, when you can.
Help us to show Southern Indiana that the Geocaching community understands and supports them in this difficult time.
