Hurricane Ian has damaged, ruined and taken lives along a ravaged Florida coast, and it is painful to recover from such devastation. We’re counting on our audience to help where help is needed, as it always does, and we’d like to make it simple with today’s fundraiser. Meadowlark Media will match up to $20,000 in audience donations. And all proceeds from Tshirts designated for hurricane relief in the merch store will also go toward recovery efforts. People in distress need help, and you can provide real relief. Give. Help. Please. Gracias. — Dan
Operation BBQ Relief is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports communities following natural disasters with hot barbeque meals to those in need and on the front lines. After the devastating tornado in Joplin, Mo. in May 2011, competitive pitmasters from eight different states answered the call to feed displaced families and first responders and served over 120,000 meals over 13 days. This experience was the catalyst that started what Operation BBQ Relief is today. With the help of more than 14,000 volunteers, Operation BBQ Relief has provided over 10 million meals throughout the United States.
