Double your dollars

If you’re considering contributing to the Katrina relief effort, you might want to do it through the Memphis Grizzlies Charitable Foundation – they’ll match your donation. See details below. Thanks to my friend Amy for forwarding this info to me.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, donations of cash and goods are pouring into dozens of organizations aiding the disaster relief efforts. I am sure many of you have already made donations, volunteered your time, or even opened your homes to victims of the disaster.
IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY made a donation to support the relief efforts, I encourage you to make your gift to the Memphis Grizzlies Charitable Foundation. Our team’s owner, Michael Heisley, has offered to match all cash gifts 1:1 and then all funds will be forwarded to the American Red Cross.
In other words, if you donate $50, it will be doubled by Mr. Heisley; $100 will go to aid the Red Cross.
All donations are welcome; none is too big or too small. That is why, even if you have made a donation elsewhere, even the smallest gift will be doubled if you make a donation to the Grizzlies Foundation.
Please send donations to:
Memphis Grizzlies Charitable Foundation
191 Beale Street
Memphis, TN 38103
Please write “Katrina Match” in memo line, so we know for what your donation is intended.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call me at 901.205.1243 or email at
Thank you very much for your care and generosity. Please forward this to others who might be interested in this opportunity.
