We didn't see anything of the Red Cross, Civil Defense or any other aid agency after the big
earthquakes here, but we were personally able to organise/accept donations from across
Lochac, get the funds to some mobile SCAdians who still had functioning supermarkets, and
get bootloads of essential supplies delivered to informal volunteer-based groupings in the
hardest-hit suburbs -- this included one lady willing to stock up in her town and drive an hour
up here to drop off goods.
It's really good for the soul to be involved in something like that -- and it really stuns the folk
to hear it's a living history group behind the initiative!

months after the main earthquake occurred....
