Hello Wet Dog Adventure members,
As many of you know we now offer an
optional membership with this meetup group. You also know that we are giving back
We'll, after much thought on where to send this donation we have discovered an organization that fits our Wet Dog Ways. We have researched and organization through our church, Cypress Meadows called Shelter Box. This ingenious relief organization provides a waterproof plastic box filled with survival gear including a ten person tent, water purification tablets, blankets, first aid, drawing books, crayon and pens for the children, entrenching tool, saw, hammer, wire cutters, multi fuel stove. In addition, there are pans, utensils, bowls, mugs and water storage containers. The box it self can used for food and water storage, etc. They are a very cool group and feel this is a good as place to start as any. You can check them out here: http://shelterbox.org/about.php?page=9
Upon further research we found that
we could even track where this shelter box will go. Your organization's box
receives a number and name on it and through the website you can see where the
box was sent. Shelter Box is now in
Now some of you may be thinking...
What's with the membership dues? We'll to be honest we planned this for a few
months and wanted to launch the new optional membership idea to the group in
early January. Yes, were hoping the group grows as a result of this, and as
they say "a high tide floats all boats" We think that the larger our
group grows the more of an impact we can have on things like this and our local
environment. Originally our idea was to give back to an Eco Friendly
organization that we have a history with called "
If you want to help out with this or perhaps on trip ideas, or become an assistant organizer please let us know.
