Central Texas Fires and a Way to Help

I'm sharing this post from Book People's Blog:
Support the American Red Cross of Central Texas and Wildfire Victims 
http://www.centex.redcross.org/index.asp?IDCapitulo=F9ZLZNZ3KD
The fires taking place in Central Texas have been devastating to so many.  In order to support our community, BookPeople will be donating a portion of our sales to the American Red Cross of Central Texas from Tuesday 9/6 though Friday 9/9. This applies to all sales, both in-store and online.  Our cashiers can also take direct donations at the registers – simply ask your cashier to donate to the Red Cross when checking out. (For any followers in the Austin area, go by the store to help.)

With the Central Texas community in need, we hope you will help in any way you can.  And please use these tips for preventing fires.

I've just learned that a High School friend has lost her home.  Here's an image from one of the  neighborhoods, just to give perspective:

That's so awful. And here we are drowning in rain for the last 3 days (again), so wish we could send it your way. Be careful:@)

I know; it's hard to imagine a drought in some areas when others are flooding. Thanks for your support!

Bushfires are such horrible things, they just knock you for six. I do hope your friend is back on her feet soon.
