Folks, I am forwarding this from Deb (she attached big pretty pictures 
you can see as urls at the end)

*For questions, email her not me, debchandler411 at gmail.com*

Personally I find cash is often more useful, but these folks are in the 
thick of it,
so if you are so minded and can help, go to it.

And may all the best go with them
