Default Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund

I am starting a fund to help the people of Texas who have recently experienced and suffered the disaster of winds and terrible flooding from Hurricane Harvey. We all need to do our part by helping these people . It could be US the next time ! I am willing to manage and coordinate the listing of donated wood, pen blanks , pen kits , tools , etc. for sale on this thread. I will list the items with pictures, description and price donated from the sellers. The sellers will be responsible for shipping the items to the buyers, and I will collect the payments via PayPal using my e-mail address joeschneider1@outlook.com I will pay the sellers for the shipping costs. Please provide prices, pictures and descriptions of your items. I would encourage all to look in your shops and chip in , and lets show these people that we care about them and their recovery . I expect this to be a long effort.

All funds collected will be sent to Joe Hurston of www.airmobile.org and Stan Brock of www.ramusa.org for clean water, food and medical supplies. Both ministries are now on site in Texas. I thank Jeff and Mike of IAP for supporting this effort . I plan to send them a weekly update of the status.

Here are 4 initial donations ( from me ) of 4 LOTS of pen blanks. Shipping is $7.15
LOT A ........9 Black Walnut ...$18.00
LOT B ........9 Indian Rosewood....$27.00
LOT C.........9 Indian Rosewood....$27.00
LOT D.........8 Bocote .................$24.00

This thread can be a "wanted to buy " place for buyers to request their interest in different woods / sizes , etc that they want to purchase. The sellers would answer with their available items. For example , I have maple, walnut, ash, cherry, Cuban mahogany, Royal Poinciana , red cedar , sea grape , granadillo and others that could fill orders.....if sizes were known.

Please provide your comments and ideas .

Update from Texas.

GETTING CLEAN WATER TO BEAUMONT
The destruction of Harvey is still going on. Water is still rising in places. Chemical plants are burning and folks are still evacuating

In the midst of all of this, we loaded up the Little Donkey and flew from Conroe (KCXO) to Beaumont (KBPT)...an area desperate for clean water.

The flight only took 30 minutes. If we would have driven, it would have been hours because of the many road blocks.


We were met there by member of the Church On The Rock. We had 5 Air Mobile Rescuer water purifiers.[/font]

After arriving at the Church, we saw tremendous movements of food, formula, diapers, bottled water and so much more to the needy. This Church is AMAZING in their outreach!!

Then, we met Pastor Ron Hammond. Ron and his great church have put in water wells all around the world with CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network)


They understand and know the need for clean water! I then had the opportunity to explain the Air Mobile Rescuer and how it works. THEY GOT IT!

Literally, within the hour, the church was securing a large water tank, extra hoses and putting into place the ability to take the highly contaminated tap water and turn it into very clean drinking water! WOW!


After careful prayer and consideration, we decided to present 2 more Air Mobile Rescuers to the Church On The Rock!

BTW, Pastor Ron is also a pilot and really loved the Little Donkey!! I know that our paths will meet again!!

After this strategic deployment of Rescuers, we flew back to Conroe, our staging area.


Along the way, we could see rivers literally rising. On the flight earlier, we noted their levels and in a matter of hours, they had risen. The DISASTER of HARVEY is on-going!

Here are a few more shots taken from the Little Donkey on the flight from Conroe to Beaumont and back.


I want to THANK Brian Scott of CBN for joining me on this journey. I particularly want to THANK CBN for funding these 7 Air Mobile Rescuers to bring clean water to those in such need!!

Today, I'll be meeting with some of my family who live in the area. We'll see what this day holds. As always, THANK YOU for your precious prayer, love and support!!!

Air Mobile Joe

I'll take lot B.

My only thought is that since it is in the "Activities Manager" forum that maybe some folks aren't seeing it.

I am going to put together a batch of blanks for sale when I get home, should I post them in this thread or make a new thread with a link to this thread?
