**I WANT YOU TO READ THIS CAREFULLY**: WhatÂ pictures/objects do you have on your desk/table where you are currentlyÂ reading this article? Now picture your house/apt being on fire. Think about the pictures/objects again, now picture your house/apt on fire again. You have a race for the clock to grab only a few things. Should anyone care or try to help now that you are losing EVERYTHING?Â
Are you watching the fires in Socal? Many of you live nowhere nearby, so why should this matter? Well, almost 1 million people have been EVACUATED due to the fires. The US currently has roughly: 303 million people (source: http://www.census.gov/main/www/popclock.htmlÂ )
**That means that 1 in 303 people in the US have been EVACUATED due to this fire.** Astounding!
Not everyone is losing their home, but many are affected and there is a great need for money and supplies. I am posting a link to the CNN website for how to help. Even if you gave $20, the cost of 2 movie tickets and a popcorn, you will be helping. Think about it, are you willing to do without one movie night simply to help people in need? Would you want someone to be willing to give up a single date night simply to make a lasting difference on your life?
Here is the link:
