We are trying to collect as many tents and sleeping bags as possible for the people who became homeless due to the recent earthquake in China. There are now more than 5 million people lost their homes. All the shelters are packed. All tents in China have been shipped to Sichuan, manufacturers are working 24/7 to produce more. But they still need 3 million tents right now. The weather in Sichuan is terrible. It is still cold and rains heavily. It is a great opportunities for us to help those who had lost everything, including their loved ones, in the earthquake. Our donation will provide them a place to stay and recoup after the tragedy. FedEx has kindly agreed to provide free shipping. Please donate your tents and sleeping bags. Please also let your friends know about this drive so that more people could extent their help.
If you want to donate your tents and sleep bags, please do so this weekend. You could either drop them today before 7:30pm at a) Milpitas Ranch 99 (in front of the fountain) 338 Barber Ln, Milpitas , CA 95035 or b) Cupertino Ranch 99 (in front of the store). 10983 N Wolfe Rd.
