Pentax Forums Hurricane Fundraiser
Proceeds from Pentax eBooks, PF T-shirts to be donated to charity
By PF Staff in Giveaways and Events on Sep 2, 2017
Last week, the US state of Texas started suffering flooding of historic proportions aftering being hit by heavy rains and winds caused by Hurricane Harvey. Thousands of people are stranded outside their homes while the total cost of damages is estimated to be in the tens of billions of dollars. Worst of all, homeowners without flood insurance are otherwise left without assistance toward repairs.
In partnership with author Yvon Bourque, we'd therefore like to help those in need by donating 100% of proceeds from Pentax eBook sales to charity during the entire month of September. We will also contribute a portion of stanard forum donations and T-shirt sales.
The proceeds will be donated to the Rebuild Texas Fund, an organization endorsed by the Texas governor seeking to provide long-term assistance to rebuild damaged communities in Texas. We'll announce the size of the donation at the end of the month.
Update: in light of the recent distasters, we will also donate to relief efforts in Florida and Puerto Rico.
