A crash course in changing the world.
I choose you Tad!
Many of you many know of Tad and The First Response Team through CNN:Heroes. I've been following The First Response Team for about 2 years now via their website http://www.firstresponseteam.org/
As soon as I heard about this organization, I bonded immediately. I had a similar idea many years back to do what they do on a much smaller level. Tad had a much larger vision, and means to make it happen. I do though, still have hopes of one day belonging to this organization to fight along side such a visionary.
This group might be a retroactive organization, but nonetheless a needed one. Destruction gives way to rebirth, and after destruction the one of the first steps to renewed life is clean-up. The generous contributions of soooo many people have afforded The First Response Team the capacity to helping people in need after disasters like hurricanes, floods, icestorms, mudslides, tornadoes, wild fires, and even earthquakes like the one in Haiti. With no cost to the people, they help get the balling rolling on starting over for people whom have lost so much and have little to start with.
If you look at the website link, you'll see all the equipment at their disposal to do what they do best. This equipment is generously donated from many companies along with the monetary contributions that goes towards maintaining all that equipment.
While The Response Team is base here in America, Tad had a vision to one day make it international. His dream of having this organziation helping other countries in need came quicker than expected with the Haiti earthquake. He immediately responsed as well as donators to help get equipment to Haiti to do their part.
