PPL Motorhomes,RV Nana and the Texas State Parks ask for your help

This past year, Texas State Parks have experienced some of our worst luck ever: Blistering heat, drought and the worst wild fires in history. The damages we’re just monetary, although that number is absurdly substantial, it’s the lives that we’re affected the most, the lost of home, property and livestock. I won’t even mention the ecological toll it took.

There is always light at the end of the tunnel and RV Nana and PPL Motorhomes have seen a little of that light in an email that came across my “desk”. Please read below, I’ve reprinted it here in full and included links so you can help Central Texas get back on their feet. It’s one of the most beautiful places to RV and we want to do everything we can to help:

Dear Jennifer Vogt,

I am reaching out to you because you have been a supporter of Texas State Parks. As you may know, record drought and heat, devastating wildfires, and a drop in visitation have led to a critical situation for state parks.

As a result, we need $4.6 million to offset this shortfall and help keep these state parks open. Thankfully there are three simple ways to help:

First, make a tax-deductible donation online <http://links.govdelivery.com:80/track?type=click&amp;enid=ZWFzPTEmbWFpbGluZ2lkPTIwMTIwMTI0LjUxNzcxNzEmbWVzc2FnZWlkPU1EQi1QUkQtQlVMLTIwMTIwMTI0LjUxNzcxNzEmZGF0YWJhc2VpZD0xMDAxJnNlcmlhbD0xNjg1MTc4NSZlbWFpbGlkPWplbnZvZ3RAY29tY2FzdC5uZXQmdXNlcmlkPWplbnZvZ3RAY> or by mail. <http://links.govdelivery.com:80/track?type=click&amp;enid=ZWFzPTEmbWFpbGluZ2lkPTIwMTIwMTI0LjUxNzcxNzEmbWVzc2FnZWlkPU1EQi1QUkQtQlVMLTIwMTIwMTI0LjUxNzcxNzEmZGF0YWJhc2VpZD0xMDAxJnNlcmlhbD0xNjg1MTc4NSZlbWFpbGlkPWplbnZvZ3RAY29tY2FzdC5uZXQmdXNlcmlkPWplbnZvZ3RAY>

Second, write in a donation of $5 or more to state parks on your vehicle registration form when you register your motor vehicle by mail, at your local county tax office, or online in counties which offer online payment.

Third, and most importantly, visit a state park <http://links.govdelivery.com:80/track?type=click&amp;enid=ZWFzPTEmbWFpbGluZ2lkPTIwMTIwMTI0LjUxNzcxNzEmbWVzc2FnZWlkPU1EQi1QUkQtQlVMLTIwMTIwMTI0LjUxNzcxNzEmZGF0YWJhc2VpZD0xMDAxJnNlcmlhbD0xNjg1MTc4NSZlbWFpbGlkPWplbnZvZ3RAY29tY2FzdC5uZXQmdXNlcmlkPWplbnZvZ3RAY> with your family or friends because visitor fees pay for about half of all state park operating costs.

Thank you for this opportunity to communicate with you. Please be assured that we will not abuse the privilege. I hope you will act now <http://links.govdelivery.com:80/track?type=click&amp;enid=ZWFzPTEmbWFpbGluZ2lkPTIwMTIwMTI0LjUxNzcxNzEmbWVzc2FnZWlkPU1EQi1QUkQtQlVMLTIwMTIwMTI0LjUxNzcxNzEmZGF0YWJhc2VpZD0xMDAxJnNlcmlhbD0xNjg1MTc4NSZlbWFpbGlkPWplbnZvZ3RAY29tY2FzdC5uZXQmdXNlcmlkPWplbnZvZ3RAY>  to help keep your state parks open for all Texans to enjoy. Because Texas State Parks won’t be the same without you.

Sincerely,
Carter Smith
Executive Director
