A Fund Raiser for Storm Victims
I believe the time is now to chip in whatever we can to help so many storm victims. All donations will help greatly from $5, $25, $50, $100, and up!
Lawrence Wealth Management (LWM) will match dollar-for-dollar up to $500. If clients and friends’ total contributions reach $5,000 we will raise our donation to $750. This offer expires September 25, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. Hurricane Harvey that hit Texas is over, but the devastation is not. And now Irma, another category 4-5 storm, is headed right to Florida.
Donate directly to the charity of your choice and email or call me AFTER you have donated and let me know the amount and name of charity. I will tally all donations on Tuesday September 26th, and will make my own donation in accordance with this challenge.
When the goodness of people surfaces during times of natural disasters, so do scoundrels looking to gain financially from charitable people. BE THOUGHTFUL WITH YOUR GIVING. There is a great site to conduct due diligence of a charity: “Charity Watch” website: www.charitywatch.org. Charity Watch provides a list of charities for Texas and/or Florida. The various humane societies are in full engagement to rescue pets and livestock and are great recipients of donations as well.. https://www.charitywatch.org/charitywatch-hot-topics You will see a list of charities that are general in nature, or specific as to location or need. I will be giving to the St Bernard Project www.sbpusa.org, and was informed about this charity from a thoughtful client.
Please note: Fraudsters sometimes replicate a legitimate charity online. Carefully read the url address: the www…. Most charities have urls that end with .org and not .com. A fraudster could develop a website with the exact web address with.com or one different character.
PLEASE GIVE…get me to donate my $750.
