We’re just a few hours away from our Play 4 PawZ :: Hurricane Irma Appeal event supporting First Coast No More Homeless Pets.
Whilst Hurricane Harvey was devastating Houston, a second hurricane named Irma was born in the Eastern Atlantic. Irma, meaning war Goddess, decemated the French territories, Cuba, the British Virgin Islands, US Virgin Islands, Anguilla, St. Maarten, Puerto Rico, Haiti, Barbuda but still had enough fuel in the tank to rip up Florida before marching on into Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama and Tennesse. Irma earned her title as the strongest hurricane ever recorded. This hurricane has taken everything from some including pets from families.
Our primary beneficiary, First Coast No More Homeless Pets is in Jacksonville Florida. First Coast and it’s partners work with their community and shelters in Jacksonville which has made Jacksonville a NO KILL community meaning 90% of the animals that enter the city shelters leave the shelters alive.
Now they need our help more than ever.
First Coast’s Norwood Avenue Clinic has been damaged and is closed until repairs can be made to reopen. In the wake Hurricane Irma First Coast is still helping shelters who also have suffered damage in the region as they work to get their own Norwood Avenue Clinic up and running.
In order to help with the costs associated with the effects of Irma we will be having a charity stream with all donations going to First Coast No More Homeless Pets. Florida pets and their families are in great need and together we can help save precious lives.
The charity stream will take place on September 29 from 6PM – 12AM CST and September 30 12PM – 6PM CST. This event will be livestreamed on Twitch and Mixer. We will be playing Rocket League, Destiny 2, Fortnite Battle Royale, Dead by Daylight and Cuphead. (Games may be subject to change).
Elgato Gaming has donated 2 Elgato HD60 S capture cards. A $50 donation will get the donator into a raffle for 1. For every $50 you donate you will get one entry. All donations will go straight to First Coast No More Homeless Pets to help with the effects of hurricane Irma.
