Make a donation in any amount to help people in the fantastic neighborhood of North Minneapolis clean-up after the tornado.
Dear Friends and Family,
As you probably know, I've been working in the fantastic neighborhood of North Minneapolis for 6 years now as part of a service-learning course at UMN. You've probably also seen the tornado that hit the Twin Cities on the news. Most of the damage was in North Minneapolis and I'm hoping you might be able to donate some of your cash to help people get food, shelter, and clear debris. Any amount will help! With love, Kristine
ps: this is part of a larger fundraising campaign:
"The Minnesota Helps - North Minneapolis Recovery Fund will support the immediate humanitarian needs of the individuals and families in North Minneapolis impacted by the May 22, 2011 tornado. The Minneapolis Foundation, in partnership with United Way will provide a dollar-for-dollar match up to $200,000 (updated daily as more partners contribute) to rebuild this community (this match has been met).
How it works: Contributions to the Fund will be pooled and then allocated jointly by the sponsoring organizations to nonprofits that are providing support to those most affected by this tragedy – both immediately and in the coming months. One hundred percent of all donations will be redistributed to provide financial support where they are urgently needed."
