A sign of a legitimate appeal for specific help is confirmed when the appeal comes to an end….as well as the success of the appeal….and both are dependent of the people making the appeal.
What am I talking about? In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey with all the appeals for dollars to help in recovery…is it any wonder that the appeal of JJ Watt and the initiative of 4 Presidents took rapid flight to the top. And they’ve both ended.
The Presidents’ “One America Appeal”, initiated by Bush 41 and 43 has announced it has stopped accepting donations now after collecting more than 41 million dollars for hurricane relief…for Harvey and those that followed.
JJ Watts, singular appeal as a favorite Houston Texan, astoundingly raised 37 million dollars, which he quickly allocated to agencies to disburse.
Mega folks just stepping in to lead mega appeals and getting mega bucks. That word really appeals to me mega.
