When I went to the Royal it appeared that OBR was all talk, but it seems that they have action to back it up. Well done guys and girls.

Not sure how you got that impression. This group is all action. No corporation, no hidden agendas, and no bs. Just 3 guys that saw a need in Joplin Missouri and decided to do a courageous thing and a bunch of other great folks jumped in.

Invicta Q 11-01-2012 07:11 AM

Big Dog, I hope that you don't mind but I have placed a post on the BBBQS forum to get the British Q fans to find out the good work you do.http://www.bbbqs.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2833

OBR is pure class and selfless. There is a bit of talk about getting something similar going here in the UK. Not affiliated but a BBQ way to help serve to the standards of OBR.

Invicta Q 11-01-2012 07:48 AM

Let me know fella as I'll be up for it.

I want to say thank you to OBR for being so selfless and giving in a time when people are in need.

As a person that has been through several hurricanes where power has been lost for weeks on end, I can honestly say that a home cooked meal is greatly appreciated when almost all of your meals come out of a can.

When pay day comes around I'll make sure to try to do my part and donate to you guys!

Hey everyone - just wanted to let you know that Jeff posted an update for OBR - they need some help!

http://www.operationbbqrelief.org

From:
http://www.facebook.com/OperationBBQRelief

From Jeff: "Folks, there are already millions without power, thousands of homes flooded out and at least five deaths already reported from Hurricane Sandy slamming ashore and Operation BBQ Relief is ready to mobilize again to provide hot meals to people in need. We fed over 60,000 meals after Hurricane Isaac. This time, as many as 60 million people may be effected! We really need your help! We are a 501c3 not-for-profit and as a co-founder, I can assure you that 100% of your donations for this disaster will go towards disaster relief... 100%! We anticipate needing an additional $15,000 over current funds. Can YOU help? Every bit helps! Go to our website at www.OperationBBQRelief.org to donate. Regardless of the default amount, you can change to whatever you can contribute, bigger or smaller! Please help us with your tax deductible contribution tonight! Questions? Just ask me! Thank you so much!"

Can you pitch in $3?

If each one of the people who frequent this forum home of ours would pitch in just $3 . . . wow.

From my short time here on BBQ Brethern, I have noticed how benevolent this community is. I am sure that the Brethern will come together to help OBR raise funds to assist those effected by Hurricane Sandy!
