    Massive flooding in Calgary - please donate if possible

    Hey guys, as was posted yesterday Calgary, Alberta and surrounding areas have experienced massive flooding over the last two days. Over 100,000 people have been evacuated from their homes. We had a big flood here in 2005 that cost over $400 million in damages, and they're saying that this flood is about four times worse than that one. Most flood victims will not be covered under their insurance policies, as you can read about here: Alberta flood victims mostly out of luck with insurance - Calgary - CBC News

    If you can, please donate to the Canadian Red Cross here: Canadian Red Cross - Canadian Red Cross Stories

    As Carrie says, "the smallest thing can make all the difference." Any help you can provide would be much appreciated, no matter how big or small. Thank you!

    Thanks for posting, Jess. I hope many people will remember Alberta in any way they can.

    On Twitter, I've seen messages of support from Emily Robison (who's due to play at the Stampede in a couple of weeks, if it's able to go ahead), and from William Shatner, the actor, among others. I've also seen the hashtag #weareallcalgary being used,

    Thanks, Faraway! I hadn't seen the tweets from Emily or William, though I had noticed a tweet from The Band Perry yesterday. I don't have tickets to any of the Stampede concerts, but I'm hoping Tim McGraw and The Dixie Chicks are still able to play. Wondering if anyone has plans for a benefit concert to be held here.
