Fire blog links



We’ve tried to gather all the blog posts we could find so far on the symphony fire. The list is sure to be incomplete, and we’ll edit and update as we learn of other postings. Getting the word out about the situation is job no. 1 right now- if we can make a good, quick push and raise some substantial funds, we’ll be on our way to survival.

We’re making good progress raising funds, but it is a race against the clock. Small donations are just as appreciated as large ones- it _is_ worth taking the time to donate $10, just as it is with any number of digits in the number.

    Hi Rebecca,

    It’s us who thank you. I’ll see if we have had any contact with AFTA- that’s a brilliant idea.

    Many thanks again
