* UPDATE *
2011 – This post is now outdated, so the donation links have been removed. We are very thankful to Big Ray’s in Fairbanks, and all who helped Eagle residents rebuild their homes through generosity of spirit, labor or goods.

Remember this from our update on Eagle Village a few days ago?
To date our Warm Hearts Fund is not doing very well. I’d encourage folks to do a little surfing on the web and check out what interior Alaska is like in the winter. Folks here don’t dress for fashion…but for survival. Good quality winter gear is hard to come by at a reasonable cost. Getting outfitted is expensive and those who lost everything can expect to pay about $800 to get one set of gear, that does not include long johns, multiple types of socks and the variety of foot gear needed. PLEASE seriously consider helping with this fund. You can contribute by calling BIG RAYS in Fairbanks, Alaska at 907.452.3458 and purchasing a winter clothing gift card.
Big Ray’s is offering a 20% discount to Eagle Village residents and distributing gift cards to those who need them most.
This long-time Fairbanks business has a long history in Alaska and we appreciate their help in keeping Eagle Village residents warm this winter!
A special thanks to Angela for making this happen!!
