If you have the means, stimulate Vashon

Please consider donating some or all of your stimulus money to VashonBePrepared to help our own.

Many of us are just getting our $1,200 federal stimulus money. When my wife and I got ours we were lucky enough to be able to say that it was nice but unnecessary to our well being. We felt that it should go to others on our Island who needed it more.

Happily, we found the amazing people at VashonBePrepared who have a fundraising campaign to work toward more testing on the Island and to help those in great need of food and shelter. If you can, please consider donating some or all of your stimulus money to help our own at VashonBePrepared.org.
