Charity of the Month - September 2019

Charity of the Month is a way Team Tizzel is helping to support some very worthy organizations. As part of this program, we will dedicate a post to a charity that we will sponsor through the month by donating Holly's training run money.

Last month we posted 4 charities to make up for Dave's laziness.  JDRF - Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund and Stand Up to Cancer  received cash donations.  Dave ran a fundraiser at work for Give Kids the World  and paired it with a Facebook campaign.   He raised over $1,400.  The link to the Jost Van Dyke Methodist Church did not work so we will double-up our donation to September's charity

We are not big fans of Hurricane Dorian.   We were planning to spend a long weekend in Disney World for Epcot's Food and Wine Festival and the opening of Star Wars Galaxy's Edge.   Holly perfectly planned all the dining and events for the few days.   On Friday morning we watched the news and did not think it would be a wise decision to go.  Flying to a hurricane didn't make much sense to us, especially if that meant taking resources from people that needed them.   It was a trip we were both really looking forward to.

We can't ignore the reality that many people in the Bahamas lost everything in this storm, much like our friends in the British Virgin Islands two years ago.   The Sandals Foundation is committed to ensuring resources get to the communities that need it the most.  We trust that the foundation will provide much-needed help.
