Robyn reports that Tampa station WFTS says there is a strong need for small containers of liquid baby formula in the area most affected by Hurricane Charley. They still don’t have electricity or an abundance of water. So, they can’t refrigerate the larger containers, and they can’t mix up the powdered stuff.
If you would like to help, then send an e-mail to the baby formula manufacturers (Enfamil, Similac, Nestle, Bright Beginnings) or retailers (Albertsons, Eckerd, Publix, Target, Walgreens, Wal-Mart, Winn Dixie, etc.) and ask them to donate a case or two. You can even use the same e-mail Robyn wrote. If everyone that reads the blogs of the STG Network contributes an e-mail or three, then at least one of those corporations should respond.
Dude. This is like the ultimate in computer nerd activism. Cutting, pasting, e-mailing… all from the comfort of my own computer chair. I can even grab myself a cold one, since I’m one of the lucky bastards with power!
And it’s not like I was gonna to go out and volunteer to do any real work or open my wallet and donate cash. I might as well do something simple (and free) to help. Same goes for you. It’s an easy thing you can do to Strengthen the Good.
UPDATE: Don’t bug Albertson’s too much. They already chipped in!
