Are You Prepared for a Disaster?
When a major earthquake, hurricane, or other disaster strikes, police, firemen, and ambulances are often swamped. You might be ON YOUR OWN, for days, without power, or water, or a way to communicate beyond yelling distance. If you think you're ready, see if you can answer these simple questions.
Please do something today to prepare, not only for your sake, but for those around you. Make sure your family is "in the loop" and learn how to help your community in a disaster, by becoming a CERT! For more info on where to take a CERT class, go to www.citizencorps.gov/cert/ or www.nvoad.org, or ask any fireman or policeman.

Support Needed for Fallen Heroes

Support for Families of Patients
Hospice of Santa Clara supports families of those who are either terminally ill or with a serious illness that might lead to terminal illness. They also have a wonderful training program for volunteers.
Teenage Volunteers Needed!
Debora Cohen (visit her Spiritual Wellness Center site) is looking for help in the Los Gatos/Campbell area to raise money for causes such as the Eric Drew Foundation, which helps terminally ill children and adults navigate stem cell therapy options (a treatment that saved Drew's own life from Leukemia) and teaches patients how to raise money for medical costs not covered by insurance.
