I guess you´ve heard about the wild fires that have destroyed parts of Mojacar and surrounding areas. The last fire on Thursday 23 July 2009, was the second in just over a week and wreaked havoc throughout the Sierra Cabrera; from Cortijo Grande all the way to Sopalmo.
Needless to say the effects have been devasting to the residents of Mojacar and the many visitors who regularly come here to enjoy this magical place.
We live in Mojcar and got to experience the fire up-close and personal when we were evacuated from our house. Thankfully, we´re all safe & sound. However, we realise just how lucky we´ve been as the fire stopped just a few metres from our house. Sadly, many people were not so lucky and have sustained damage to their homes or businesses.
So rather than feeling helpless, we came up with an idea and we´d like your help.
Just €1 Appeal
We´re sponsoring a campaign called the Just €1 Appeal, where we´re asking you to donate one Euro to a fund we´ve set up to help people in Mojacar who´ve been affected by the fire.
Why Are We Only Asking for €1?
We understand that the current financial situation means money´s tight for many people. However, one Euro is an amount that most people can easy afford to donate without breaking the bank. We know there are many of you out there who love Mojacar as much as we do so here´s your chance to help. One Euro isn´t a lot to ask and if we all work together, it won´t be long before we putting a smile back on the face of Mojacar.
How to Make a Donation
Making a donation to the Appeal is easy. To donate €1 simply click on the PayPal Donate button below. You don´t need a PayPal account to make a donation and you can make your payment safely through PayPal´s secure website.
Alternatively, if you´re in the Mojacar area, you can make a donation in person by popping into our shop Rohha Lifestyle on the Paseo Mediterraneo. We´re in the parade of shops between the Hotel El Puntazo and the Estanco No.1 (Newsagents).
