There are several relief efforts underway, not the least of which are
the Salvation Army (1-800-SAL-ARMY) and the American Red Cross. Others
across the Knowne World have contacted myself and my Crown wanting to

good friends in the SCA. You guys are, hands-down, what we are all
striving to be---noble.
Thank you all so much again for your thoughts and prayers
