A Different Kind of Thankful
Chan is having a contest over at her blog. She wants to know what your favorite charity is and why. My entry is the Station Fire Fund. In February 2003 there was a horrific fire at a nightclub in Warwick, RI. A local DJ and 99 other people were killed (1/10 of 1% of Rhode Island’s population), and many more were injured, including a friend’s sister who was forced to relinquish custody of her daughter due to her incredibly lengthly hospital stay. The Station Fire Fund directly supports victims of the fire and their families, including the 76 children who lost one or both parents that night.
