    RZ Fund for one of our own

    A couple folks have PMed me recently wondering what they could do for SandyD who's been effected greatly by Katrina.

    I'd gladly collect any donations and forward them to her.

    She'll tell you she's doing O.K. and she safely evacuated. Her months ahead will be difficult and full of questions. I wish there were more I can do for her.

    A few bucks should help her and her family with the everyday essentials like gas, clothes, food, etc.

    If you're interested, PM me. I'll send you my address. I'll make sure everything gets to her.

    Sandy - please don't poo poo me on this. It isn't up to you. This is something we would like to do.

    I talked to Sandy the past two nights. I already respected her big time for her baseball knowledge and intelligence. But listening to her talk about what's going on back in New Orleans has increased that respect exponentially. Not a single word of complaint about herself or what's happened to her. Not one whimper. She left her car in a parking garage, and wouldn't even fill up the tank because she thought it would take away from someone needing gas to evacuate. Now she may not have enough gas to make it out herself when she can get back, that is if her car isn't destroyed by now.

    She was worried about the people and the city, not one word about herself, and she's probably lost everything she owns. Not one word of complaint.

    The world needs more people like Sandy. You're damn right I want to help her.

    As I mentioned to TC, PayPal would be more convenient for me, but I'll also be happy to send a check.

    Hi Paypalers!

    I've recruited a helper for this. For those of you who would rather go the paypal route, please PM TeamMorris. She's one of my roommates and much more Paypal savvy. She said she'd be happy to do that, and even suggested it before I started getting responses.

    PayPal - PM TeamMorris

    Cash or check - PM me.

    It would be great if you would include your Redszone names either way. I'll put a nice card together. (For you shy ones, anonymous is cool too. )

    How about everyone changes their signatures to like the one I got? I went overboard on the font, but I don't care.

    Good idea RBA! Never had a signature because I couldn't think of a good one. That is a good one
