Lowell’s is joining Debra Hensley’s brilliant campaign to support Haitian earthquake relief efforts. Together, we will match the first $2000 that you donate toward helping the quake victims. You can drop off a check
at Debra’s office at 1513 Nicholasville Road or at our shop at 111
Mechanic Street in Lexington.
Make checks payable to the Red Cross International Fund or the 501(c)(3) of your choice that is helping HAITI.
Texting HAITI to 90999 will donate $10 to the Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti. If you donate by text message, forward a copy of your confirmation to us at:
Thank you for your help in this global effort!
*** UPDATE: 1/15/2010 ***
We delivered the first batch of Haitian relief checks to Terry Burkhart of the Bluegrass Chapter of the American Red Cross this afternoon, collected from across our generous community.
Thank you so much for your donations. Here’s how Debra said it:
We just delivered the first set of checks to the Red Cross. 100% of these
funds will get to the Haiti Relief Fund very quickly. You have also
supported – Doctors Without Borders, Food For the Poor, Salvation Army,
Oxfam America, and so many other fine organizations.
We asked you to step up and you did. We told you we would match the
first $2,000 and we did. We will continue to ask other like businesses
and organizations to join with matching funds for the need is so great.
As of this moment we have raised $6520, including our match. We will
post an entire list of contributors once we have cleared it with them.
Thank you, thank you and more later.
If you haven’t had a chance to donate yet, we will continue to collect your contributions – as you can see in the photos and stories emerging from the tragedy, the need is profound. Let’s do all we can.
*** UPDATE: 1/19/2010 ***
Your tremendous generosity continues to mount! Including our match, Debra and Lowell’s have raised over $9600 in relief from over 100 people. We just delivered another batch of relief checks to the Red Cross this afternoon.
If you haven’t had a chance to contribute yet, we are still collecting your contributions. Keep ’em coming!
