images-141Hey all –

Hundreds of people lost everything yesterday when one of the most destructive tornadoes in history cut through the towns of Newcastle and Moore, Okla. Homes, schools, and businesses were leveled, and dozens lost their lives.

Here’s how you can help. Please make sure you let others know, too.

The Salvation Army is organizing mobile kitchens capable of serving 2,500 people a day and sending them into the hardest-hit areas in central Oklahoma. You can make a donation here, or make a $10 donation using your phone by texting STORM to 80888.

The American Red Cross has set up shelters in communities across The Plains. You can donate to the Red Cross Disaster relief fund here, or make a $10 donation using your phone by texting REDCROSS to 90999.

If you’re searching for a missing friend or relative or are within the disaster region and want to let folks know you’re OK, visit the Red Cross Safe and Well site here.

Stay safe, and take care of each other.

    FYI – I was a survivor of 9/11, displaced from my home for more than 6 weeks. In that experience, the Salvation Army was far superior in getting appropriate resources to the people who needed them.
