Thanks to all the EFA members who have donated to help - you can see the list here:

Note: the following appeal is from Brooke Suchomel for the Iowa Flood Relief Auction. Please note that, because they need to raise money quickly, people who donate items to the auction will send the items directly to the auction winners. Deadline for e-mailing Brooke is June 21, 2008.

For more information - and other ways to help, please see Brooke's website at http://www.iowafloodreliefauction.com.

My name is Brooke Suchomel, and I am asking for donations for an upcoming auction that I've organized to raise funds for the animals displaced by the recent flood
in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The Cedar Rapids Animal Shelter has been completely destroyed. There are hundreds of companion animals being housed in temporary evacuation shelters in Cedar Rapids. Many, many more animals are still stranded in the tens of thousands of abandoned homes. Support is desperately needed.

The auction will be held on our website at http://www.iowafloodreliefauction.com/ from June 25-July 2. All funds raised will be directed to a special "Friends of the Animal Shelter" fund via the Kirkwood Foundation (tax ID 23-7076632), which is the fundraising division of the Kirkwood Community College, currently serving as the temporary shelter for displaced animals.

If you want to contribute, please send an e-mail to iowafloodreliefauction [!at] gmail.com by this Saturday, June 21. In the email, include your name, store name & website, a brief description and image of your donated item, retail value of item & suggested starting bid, and any other information you would like to promote your business.

For this auction, I'm asking that donors send items directly to the winner. I will forward winner name & contact information to the donor after the close of the auction on July 2. Please see our website at http://www.iowafloodreliefauction.com for more information, and a list of donors.
