This is an initiative from Republic Metals Corporation that I thought you should be aware of. Florida is not only the home of the HQ of IPMI, the International Precious Metals Institute, but also of Republic Metals, and it’s a very cool state on top of it. If you know me, you know of my passion for the Florida Keys which is why I am happy to promote this initiative:
“On Sunday, September 10th, the eye of Hurricane Irma, a category-4 hurricane, made landfall over the Florida Keys and continued North, devastating cities all across the Sunshine State. Over 6.5 million people, approximately one-third of the state’s residents, were forced to evacuate in preparation for one of the strongest storms on record. Damage from Hurricane Irma is estimated to be greater than $50 billion and, with government aid and resources already spread thin from Hurricane Harvey, rescue workers and organizations need as much assistance as possible.
Republic Metals has designed and minted the FLORIDA STRONG silver round, and in cooperation with eBay and APMEX will be donating the profits to Red Cross. These donated funds will provide the families and individuals impacted by Hurricane Irma with much-needed food, shelter, and supplies.”
