BENEFITING: American Red Cross
Firstly, in case you don’t want to read this entire message—
The easiest way to donate is to text REDCROSS to 90999 which charges $10 to your phone bill.
Anyway, I'm sure your aware of the devastation in central Oklahoma from the recent Tornado. I have personally been affected by another disaster, Hurricane Sandy, which decimated my neighborhood where I grew up on the Jersey Shore, so the needs of the tornado victims became more real for me. Through my family’s recovery process, I have seen how in these situations, there simply can never be too much aid.
Moore, OK, does not have any community shelters because of space limitations, and over 2,000 homes were demolished in the tornado. The Red Cross is creating shelters as we speak for the victims of the tornado, and is also providing food, water, and medical assistance.
It is quite clear that the residents of Moore and other affected areas are in desperate need of help and even if it seems as though they have much charity work at their disposal, as a fellow disaster victim in the past, I know that every dollar really does make a difference.
I just figured I would create this so everyone who wants an accessible outlet to donate, can donate.
If anyone is financially unable or simply does not wish to donate, that is completely understandable, it is simply nice to know that our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the tornado and their families.
