Kudos to the three of you!

But what a harrowing job it must have been. When I saw the request, I discussed with my husband how it must feel to do that sort of work. It must have really torn at the heartstrings reading pleas for help etc., but so good to know you were able to aid the relief effort in such a direct manner.
