On May 4th, at around 10 PM, a horrible tornado tore through the town of Greensburg, Kansas, leaving nothing but devastation in its wake: loss of life, injuries, 1,000 destroyed homes, 250 destroyed businesses, and 90-95% of the community wiped out. It will cost upwards of $100 million to rebuild the community, parks, streets, roads, community center, city hall, and to restore some degree of normalcy to this small town. You can see more photos of the terrible disaster yourself here.
Our favorite show, Jericho, takes place in a fictitious town in Kansas that is clinging to hope and survival in a time of massive disaster. The real Kansas needs our help, too. (And note that both these terrible things happened in Kansas the same week!) Let's act with the same fierce love and dedication we've shown our favorite show!
I spoke to Steve Hewitt, the City Administrator, first thing Tuesday morning and he said they need help desperately. NutsOnline.com wants to help. Will you join us?
NutsOnline.com will donate 10 cents per pound of all peanuts shipped in the NUTS for Jericho campaign, both retroactively and going forward. We will also donate the entirety of proceeds (about $5) from each shirt that we sell. We encourage you Jericho Fans to help out directly as well. You can make extra cash contributions along with your peanut contributions...or just on its own, right on this page.
Alternately you can mail contributions directly to:
Greensburg Rebuilding Fund
If you are considering large sums, please donate to them directly. Steve Hewitt, the city administrator, will track contributions from Jericho Fans and let me know. As for the tax deduction issue, the Greensburg Rebuilding Fund is not a 501(c)(3). It is a municipal agency. If you donate directly, they will mail you back a thank you letter. Steve said the contribution is tax deductible, but that you would have to have a tax professional handle the deduction.
Guys, I think this is just wonderful. Thank you.
