Unusually this year there hasn't been a Gary Brooker charity gig ... but Palers might well like to respond to this heart-felt plea from Procoholic Guillermo in flood-ravaged Venezuela.
Thanks for your interest in my well-being; It has been a great tragedy for my Country but I am sure we will be able to rebuilt what we lost because, after all, we are not alone, as a country and as people, like Beverly and you have exemplified.
Since you showed concern for what happened in Venezuela because of the flood, I kindly ask you to post the note below in your website, so anybody willing to help us can find a convenient way to make a donation. Feel free to edit it in order to fit available space in your server, please and add my e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org so I can write later a thank-you note.
|You already know about the flood that we
had 7 days ago in Venezuela (14 days of continuous rain).
8 states were affected, we are talking of the greatest
disaster of this century in Latin America , from 10,000
to 30,000 deaths and
more than 120,000 persons lost their home.
