Prayers and donations to OK

DH and I just donated bags and bags of diapers DS has outgrown, formula that is unused (we switched brands) and several bags of gently used clothes he has grown out of, a few stuffed animals and some books and a $100 gift card (to help the group with gas money) to send with a local church group that is headed down to Moore, OK to help with relief aid. 

So terrible, we are sending a ton of prayers their way.  

Henry Cavill...You're welcome!

  • If you want to help right away, text REDCROSS to 90999 to give 10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief to helps people affected by the tornadoes. They'll buy stuff within the community to help and keep their economy going while they recover. It's just heartbreaking.

    Yes, DH and my FIL did that this morning too. I looked around at my community this morning and couldn't imagine if it happened here. I hope everyone takes a moment to help and donate items, money or just prayers. They need it.

  • How wonderful of you.
    Some of DH's clients are leaving this morning to do search and rescue there. One is our neighbor and we gave him some RTF formula samples I happened to get yesterday.

    In my personal experience Red Cross hasn't helped friends very much when they were affected by natural disasters. Even though they did massive fundraising for those same disasters. So I always try to find local groups or people heading there instead
  • As someone who lives in Oklahoma city I would like to say thanks!  We were fortunate to not have the tornado come through our area (it was about 20 minutes south of us).   A really scary part was the schools that were destroyed and the parents not knowing for a while if their kids were ok or not.

    Wow, so close to you, glad you are safe. I know, the news of the elementary schools brings me to tears...I cannot imagine how those parents are feeling.

    It definitely makes you think that it's time to make a family plan for emergencies like this. DH and I talked about it last night that if the phones do not work and DS is at d/c who would run out and get him so we both wouldn't and if our home was gone which shelter would we meet at, etc. So we kind of worked all that out but we should really finalize it.

  • We were hit by a tornado a few years ago and in my own personal experience, both Red Cross and Operation Blessing (I don't love their connections but they were great in person) were there on the ground to help right away. We were given shelter and gift cards by the Red Cross and OB helped us demo what was left of our house at no cost.

    My grandmother and mom were hit by a tornado a few years ago too during a massive tornado outbreak. In our particular situation, the Red Cross did absolutely nothing (no passing out water/sunscreen/tarps, no handing out food, no helping with anything having to do with houses/rubble). There are still houses "standing" today where the family didn't have insurance and couldn't afford to have it torn down. The only groups that actually helped during that time were church groups and a local mason's group. I'm glad that your experience with them was different though.
