Thanks for your support! Last week I was in the area affected by flooding and the damage is still very evident. I heard alot of stories on how families have been relocated and businesses have had to shut down there doors.

Funds have been donated to Coulee Cap as of today, and I will keep you afloat if I hear of any good news on how our funds may have been used.

Thanks for your help in supporting those in need locally!

All Funds Will Be Donated To a Organization Local to the Impacted Area:

Update #2

Quote from a resident in La Farge:

"We are fortunate and have no water damage, since we live on a ridge. We just can't go anywhere since the roads are closed that go into the valley. It's a weird feeling knowing that friends and family a 1/2 mile away have lost everything and don't know where to even begin to pick up the pieces."

In regards to Coulee Cap, the organization receiving these funds, he said:

""That's a great place to donate to as it employees all local people. I know some of the carpenters that work for them and they can definitely use the money. Lots of people here could. Its amazing to see the power of water. We got close to 9" in 90 mins last Tuesday night. Its rained everyday since and folks here are hurting"
