Neil Peart's "News Weather and Sports" - January 2011

Neil Peart has updated his website with his latest edition of "News Weather and Sports". Unlike his typical reports, Neil provides an update of his call to raise funds for The Red Cross of Chile:
"The Chilean Red Cross— Cruz Roja Chilena—had organized the above-ground facilities for the rescue, though their resources were already strained by the terrible earthquake in February of 2010. The staff here at—Our Eponymous Founder, designer Greg Russell, and the manager over at Bubba’s Bar ’n’ Grill, Brutus—decided we wanted to help. So we thought we’d try something new: ask the readers to help us help. And people stepped up—Big Time! Over 2,000 people made donations, many of them more than the 'suggested minimum,' and within a little over a month, almost $5,000 had been raised. Our Eponymous Founder volunteered to match that amount—and we are all very proud to present this check to Cruz Roja Chilena." - Neil Peart, "News Weather and Sports", January 2011
