A Message from Ed Thomas, President, NHMA:

Now that the Black Friday frenzy is over, and CyberMonday’s online deals are expiring, it’s time for #GivingTuesday. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving. This year, it happens today, Tuesday, November 27.

The Natural Hazard Mitigation Association needs your help.

Please join us in supporting the NHMA goal of reducing disaster misery through local action.

The best form of disaster Relief is no disaster relief because a foreseeable natural process of this planet did not result in human suffering, damage to people and the environment and vast waste of resources. NHMA seeks to inspire, educate and inform about safer development and redevelopment so that harm from natural disasters are prevented; or at least do not reoccur. To engage in this effort, we need resources in addition to our volunteer donated time and effort. This effort, Disaster Risk Reduction, cuts across all political fear and hatred; it unites us in a common cause.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to our 501 c 3 Educational Charity to assist us in spreading a non-political message of Disaster Risk Reduction, based on good sound community development decision making including better and safer building codes, improved zoning and a Whole Community approach to development and redevelopment that fosters a better, more just and fair future.

To start this off, Kathy and Ed Thomas will be renewing their annual challenge to match donations up to a five-figure amount disclosed to our Treasurer, David Mallory. This year we will be donating via a PayPal/Facebook Challenge, so we can maximize all donations. To donate via Facebook, please click this link – and be sure to mention Natural Hazard Mitigation Association as the recipient!

Thank you all very much for your continued support of the National Hazard Mitigation Association.


Ed Thomas,
