We all heard about the devastation in the United State’s Midwest region earlier this week. I spent a good part of Monday looking for updated news articles and watching short clips online, trying to find the latest updates on those in the tornado path, praying that all the people I knew in the area were safe. I kept checking throughout the week and finally knew that all my friends were safe but my heart grieved for all those who lost loved ones. The devastation of lost neighborhoods was enough but add to that the lost of life was just heart-breaking. I can only imagine the pain so many are going through.
Living where I do and having a family with young children, I can’t go to Moore, Shawnee and surrounding areas to physically help but I hope to help from home. Several bloggers from the Inspired Bloggers Network desire to use our influence and the power of our blogs to make a difference. I hope the following information is helpful for you and that we can all come together in some way (prayers, donations or physical help) and support those suffering and grieving in the Midwest.
How Can We Help?
One of the charities we are choosing to feature, Samaritan’s Purse, is currently enlisting volunteers. So, if you are close to the areas affected, please visit the Samaritan’s Purse website to see how you can serve those in need.
“Our prayers are with all of those who are suffering because of this massive storm. We are going to stand by them and do everything we can to help them recover physically, emotionally and spiritually.” – Samaritan’s Purse President Franklin Graham
Volunteers are already in action and more help is needed. Please consider donating your time to Samaritan’s Purse and if you are not available to serve physically, keep those who are working in your prayers.
If you are Inspired to Help, please make a donation to either Samaritan’s Purse or the American Red Cross to support their relief efforts in Texas and Oklahoma and help us track our impact by marking the amount you donated in the form below. If you would like, you can let us know you joined our effort by commenting on one of our blogs listed below.
