Please help hurricane victims! : LUSENET : 3D Audio's Music Business Forum (SSS Temp) : One Thread

Hello all,

I don't usually do mass e-mail forwards, but for this I'll make an exception. For those who don't live anywhere near where tropical storms can impact lives, their effect is devastating and deadly. I got this e-mail, and I've donated a bit more than $5.00 to the Red Cross disaster fund. We got whacked pretty hard by Georges and Mitch here in the Florida Keys, but we were very lucky in comparison to the victims in Central America. Please read (and forward) this e-mail. Together, each of us doing a small part, we can do some real good.

Thank you, John Bartus Radio Active Productions 1-888-93-RADIO (305) 743-4248

<< PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO READ - THOUSANDS OF LIVES CAN BE SAVED Dear Friends, I have just finished watching Ted Koppel's first NIGHTLINE broadcast from Honduras. The situation there is beyond horrific. Tipper Gore called it "a catastrophe of Biblical proportion". At last count over 11,000 people have been confirmed dead. It is possible that the final death toll could even double this number. Catastrophic winds and flooding have left over one million people without homes. There is little food and almost no water to drink. The president of Honduras described the region as a "panorama of death, desolation, and ruin." The sick and injured have overwhelmed the region's already struggling hospitals. Hundreds of thousands have no electricity, no telephones, and are completely cut off from the outside world. The region's cash crops were almost entirely devastated. Government officials say it will be decades before the region recovers from the storm.
