I have many years of experience in natural disaster relief. One of the worst disasters I was ever involved in was Hurricane Andrew, August 1992. I remember going down to Homestead in South Florida and working with victims who lost everything, with no one and nowhere to turn to for help. It was so bad that many couldn’t eat for days, as the Red Cross was unable to get into the hardest hit areas quick enough.
I remember going into one neighborhood and literally handing out a few dollars at a time to as many people as I could, with the limited amount of cash I had on me at the time, just so they would be able to buy fresh water and something to eat from the only store that was opend for miles. I was shocked to find out that some didn’t even have $10 to buy water or food. After that experience, I made a commitment to myself that I would someday do something to make a change.
