East Tennessee is my home and I really can't begin to express how painful it is to watch the news and see the impact of the devastating fires. Please keep the people of the Gatlinburg area in your thoughts and prayers as they begin to assess the damage and start the clean up process. If you don't live in the area and would like to help in some small way, you can make an easy $10 donation to American Red Cross by texting "REDCROSS" to 90999

Many people don't know that Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the few national parks that doesn't charge entrance fees. Over 9 million visitors per year get to enjoy the park for free. Many of the park improvements are funded by Friends of the Smokies due to the lack of entrance fee revenue. Please consider a small donation to @smokiesfriends - they will be heavily involved in the restoration of the park.
