Boaters Working for Chilean Earthquake Relief

The message below was originally distributed on the Grand Canyon Private Boaters Association email list. The folks doing the work have have been blogging about their efforts and have photos of the wreckage and relief efforts along with a PayPal donation link on their website.

Subject: [gcpba] Off subject, boaters work for Chilean earthquake relief

My friends, the Long Family, set up this blog about their relief efforts in Chile. This is a family of boaters who live in Idaho, but run a kayak school in Pucon during the winter. They are wonderful people who have already devoted much time, energy, and resources. The site also includes a Paypal link for contributions.

Thanks for your consideration.

Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
