CoasterBuzz Club members donate $680 to Red Cross

Sunday, September 4, 2005 1:52 AM
As promised, I'm donating club memberships paid from Thursday through Saturday. A total of 34 members stepped up and I'm sending the Red Cross $680. Nice job!

If you missed out, you can always donate directly. I suggest Amazon's payment service because it seems to be more reliable than going to the Red Cross directly...

Every Dollar Does count. The situation down there is even worse than the news can make it look.

I think of it this way $1.00 = 4 bottles of water. Water is what they need the most of right now. 1 Bottle of water CAN SAVE A LIFE!

Water is what they need the most of right now.

I wanted to do it but I didn't have any money after my SFGAdv trip. I will give a little after payday.

Jeff, You didn't have to donate anything from the site, but you did. $680 is a lot of money to raise from Coasterbuzz, and you are inderectly helping to raise money as well by being a good example.

Cheers to CB and Jeff!

Damn, were do you buy water. If you want to send water. Go to CostCo, buy the Kirkland 24 bottles for $3.00

They need as much supplies as they can get, but water the most.

I was on Norwegian Cruise Line's Pride of Aloha last week and donated money on-board. NCL is matching all donations.

Kudos to Jeff and everyone at CB for helping out ;)

Nice job to the whole community. I just bought a case of water today (24 bottles) and that was only $3.98 so I don't know where you get $1.00 for 4 bottles...also the local Wilson Farms were running a deal where if you donated $4.00 they would send a case of water to Louisiana. So yes, every littl bit helped.


Btw: This donation deal is what made me become a CoasterBuzz Club member...so thanks Jeff for making it possible!

I think it's great that coaster buzz members are rounding up there pennies to contribute funds. I think this is great but I also can't understand why rich wealthy people ask us average income earning people for money. When music artists come together and play music for donations towards hurracaine victims and earthquake survivors and then announce how happy they are to of recieved a million or 2 million dolars. It seems a bit appoling how there's that many artists out there with millions and millions and millions. It seems to me just a little bit unreal. Someone like brittney spears whos worth a net income of 200 million and there are thousands of extremely wealthy people out there. Can someone answer this for me. I get a little dumbfounded. Can't one of these people sell one of there ferarri's or something. WOW!

I think what he's trying to say is why does is seem there is more a burden on the average folk to help out.

Tekno, I think if celebs were actually donating tons of cash, they'd be publicizing the bejesus out of it. I can't imagine any of these photo-op whores telling their "people" to "keep my hefty donation a secret and instead talk about how my husband left his pregnant girlfriend to lock boots with me."

I'm not saying they aren't, actually, I just think this was the wrong place for his forum (and, yet again, I had a PM waiting for me with someone's explination...).

However, were I a celeb that had tons of cash, I wouldn't tell anyone when I donated. I think 'bragging' that you're donating kinda defeats the whole purpose...

Since we've already moved down this road...

I think it's important to note that regardless of how much money comes in through various charities, etc., we really do NEED the *expertise* of the National Guard/Military to coordinate relief efforts, deal with infrastructure issues, restore the rule of law, restore electricity, and so forth...

Not alot of people in the private sector have the experience and know-how to deal with problems of THIS magnitude...no matter how you may feel about the role of government, the need for volunteerism, etc., there's times when NOTHING can substitute for people who have "been there". And when something like THIS happens, there's not alot of people in the world who can pull together/coordinate the vast array of resources available to alleviate the suffering and restore normalcy...
