Kilted to Kick Cancer -- And Help Houston

Friday is September 1st, and the official start of the 2017 Kilted to Kick Cancer fundraiser.

And, unless you've been living in a cave without WiFi, you've no doubt heard about the horrific tragedy that has struck the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast region.  To say that it is beyond comprehension would not be hyperbole.  This is a Thousand Year Event, and it's impact is felt by millions of people.

This year, the powers that be at KTKC have decided that we're going to accept donations to Harvey relief organizations as part of our fundraising challenge.  As Ambulance Driver writes on the fundraising challenge page:

For this year only, due to the current devastation from Hurricane Harvey, in addition to direct donation to Kilted to Kick Cancer, we will count donations made in your team’s name to the following highly rated Hurricane Harvey charities:
Houston Food Bank
Food Bank of Corpus Christi
Center for Disaster Philanthropy Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund
J.J. Watt’s Fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey Relief   
Simply donate to one of these worthy charities, in the name of your favorite KTKC Fundraising Team, and forward your donation receipt to In the subject line, put, “Credit to Fundraising Team [insert team name here].”

 So there ya have it: You can donate to KTKC directly via the normal donation page (Team JBro, if you'd be so kind) or to the charities listed above.

The challenge begins at 00:01 CST Friday.  Please give as much as you can, regardless of which charity you select.
