Portugal is burning again :'( After the great fires of last June, Portugal's Civil Protection Agency claims firefighters have brought under control a major 5-day-old wildfire that destroyed a wide area of pine and eucalyptus forest.
The recent blaze at Serta, about 200 kilometers Northeast of Lisbon, is officially estimated to have charred more than 25.000 hectares of land. That's about 10% of the surface of the Luxembourg, the country I was born in ...
Additionnally, fires broke out later as a result of severe drought conditions in 70% of Portugal territory according to the local Weather Institute.
It is officially reported that hundreds of firefighter were deployed to a dozen blazes together with more tan 20 water-dropping aircrafts.
My Leechi charity pot will be open until late August if you want to help in this summer's #solidaritychallenge #spew4pt. Find out more about the project below if you are not familiar with it.
You can donate money via the Leechi site or just hand me over the money in cash, by wire transfer or by any other means.
After the beginning of the project in June and my ITM trip to Rozvadov a bit after for the SPF, I am now back with more great news:
- Yoann and Sarah from Luxembourg have contributed to the pot with a donation of €30 !! Muito obrigado !!
- I made the money (12th/247) in the CNPi Estoril Main Event for a total of €1.900. Being in for only €185 (€35 sat, €100 sat, €50 add-on) instead of €600 (normal buy-in), this makes a nice profit of €1.715 and I will add €90 to the charity pot (5% of the profit).
In total, the money pot has now reached €346.
