With children there can often be questions that are tough to answer. Some tough ones are about natural disasters and whether you are in danger from them. There are different ways to deal with such questions. One way is to explain whether it is likely and how you might be ready to cope with such an emergency.
There are emergencies that can crop up anywhere that we live. It is prudent to keep an emergency kit with food and water for 72 hours in case the power and water are out that long. There are other things you can include in the emergency kit as well and it should have enough for the people living there.
Have you considered how disabled people might cope? Some folks are dependent on their electric wheelchair and the batteries only last so long. They might not be able to drive a manual wheelchair. It is good to know what resources are available and who might be at risk.
This strip* was published before as “Wheel Tales of We’ll Make Cents” but we thought it would be better to publish more independently — hence the change in venue and name to “Wheel Tales of Willow City”.
“We’ll Make Cents” is an organization that helps support a number of not-for-profit causes which might get overlooked. Why not pop over and give them a visit.
Donations are actually hard to come by for Charities and other not-for-profit organizations. Consider what you might be able to donate. It might be a good time to clean that closet, attic, cellar, shed, or garage! You might have someone else’s next treasured possession. Perhaps you don’t live near Auckland and We’ll Make Cents, but there are people in need everywhere!
