In the wake of the evacuation, this nation once again showed its compassion and is doing whatever we can to assist the evacuees.

There is little posturing or politics, except for the “Karma Kreeps”, just plain and simple outpouring of support, no strings attached.

Black Press is pleased to assist on a more personalized scale for individual families through our crowdfunding campaign.
