PentaxForums Donates $1200 to Hurricane Relief
Large donation raised by forum members
By PF Staff in Giveaways and Events on Oct 2, 2017
When we first announced our hurricane fundraiser at the beginning of September, Hurricane Harvey had ravaged parts of Texas, causing damage on a historical scale. Later in September, two more record-breaking hurricanes displaced even more victims in Puerto Rico and Florida.
We are happy to announce that through Pentax eBook and T-shirt sales during the month of September, we are able to raise $1200 to aid hurricane relief. We have now donated this amount to charity, with half going to the Rebuild Texas Foundation for Harvey victims, and the other half for the American Red Cross for relief in Puerto Rico and Florida.
We plan to continue the giving, with 50% of eBook proceeds during the month of October going to those victims who need the most aid. You can support the cause by ordering a Pentax eBook, or, if you've already done so, consider donating directly through the PayPal Giving Fund, which lets you support the organization of your choice with just 2 easy clicks.
Big thanks go out for everyone's generosity in this time of need. Your donations will make a big difference in communities affected by the recent disasters!
