Rocketeer Charity: Bottle Rocket Supports ShelterBox

September is already coming to a close and we've just drawn our final charity for the month. ShelterBox was entered by Rocketeer David Goldstein who was thrilled that this organization was selected today to receive some Rocketeer support. 

ShelterBox is a phenomenal group whose mission it is to provide international aid to those affected by disaster by delivering custom boxes with items necessary for survival. A typical box comes complete with a tent, blankets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, stove, basic tool kit, a children's activity kit and other vital essentials.

Currently, ShelterBox is running a campaign for donations to aid refugee families who have fled Syria. There are now over 2 million refugees and over 4 million displaced within war-torn Syria who need help. If you’d like to learn more about this organization, click here.
