Had an e-mail from a friend today, who’s trying to save a historic house in Texas from demolition. She’s looking for a way to spread the news quickly and for tiny donations from anyone who’s able. All of the info about the Turner House and the project she and her partner are undertaking is up at www.kismia.com/turnerhouse/turnerhouse.htm.
The house is scheduled for demolition on the 13th, so if anybody wants to send money their way or mention it in their own blog/journal/random other ways of communication, I’m sure she’d be appreciative. If they get money but not enough to save the house, the rest of the money will be donated to a couple of worthy charities, including the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer fund. I’ll vouch for the fact that Shelley’s intentions are definitely good here.
The message from her is as follows:
Would you mind putting this link on your blog and passing it around to friends? http://www.kismia.com/turnerhouse/turnerhouse.htm. Janel and
I have this crazy set of circumstances that has led to the possibility of getting this house, but we have to come up with money fast, and it’s not looking good. I am trying to get the word out to anyone I know. We
are just looking for small donations (like $10) and hoping that we can get lots of people to help. At this point, if we could even come up with $5000, it would make a huge difference in whether we get the
house or not. Anyway, if you’re willing, please pass that around.
