Today is Earth Day, and as is my tradition on Earth Day, I'll present my nominations for best wunderphotos uploaded to our web site over the past year. This year's photos are truly remarkable, and I want to thank everyone who uploaded weather photos for their contributions to what has become one of the world's best weather photo galleries. Enjoy Earth Day!
Update on portlight.org charity errorts
The portlight.org disaster relief charity is sponsoring a Portlight Relief Event Series of fund raising events in cities across the U.S. this Spring. The next event is the Destin Dog Walk, which will take place Sunday, April 26th at Harbor Walk Village in Destin, Florida. Portlight Strategies board chair, Paul Timmons (wunderground handle, presslord) will be in attendance and will have the live webcam running, so please join in. Wunderbloggers code1, sugarsand, and FWBLinda have done an excellent job of putting this event together. It should be a beautiful day and a fun-filled event.
Portlight is also continuing to look for generous people to sponsor walkers for this event. If you would like to contribute, please use the Paypal button or send checks to the address in the Portlight Disaster Relief blog. Make sure to note "For Destin Dog Walk." Twenty-five percent of the proceeds from this event will provide disaster relief for pets. The remaining proceeds will support Portlight's disaster relief efforts for rural communities and people with disabilities.
Many thanks to all of you who have supported Portlight's efforts in one way or another! With yet another hurricane season approaching, they continue to need your help. The Portlight Relief Event Series is a critical part of preparing a more efficient and effective relief effort. If you would like to help coordinate a walk or other fundraising event in your area, please contact Paul Timmons, firstname.lastname@example.org
