Moore, OK Needs Our Help – Please Donate to the American Red Cross

Yesterday was a bit of a hectic day, I was so busy at work and was having issues with my data connection…anyhow, I was pretty much engrossed by what I was doing that I was oblivious to the news that was coming in from Oklahoma.

It wasn’t until I noticed a tweet from Jessica Merrell (@blogging4jobs) on Twitter talking about the situation near where she lives. Jessica, if you ever see these words, I’m truly glad to know that you’re alright. My heart and prayers goes out to you, your loved ones and your community.

But folks, I implore everyone who can spare some extra cash to please make a donation to the American Red Cross, these folks are out there right now providing disaster relief to those affected by the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma, as well as other parts of the midwest. You can make a donation by visiting their website at redcross.org, or by calling 1-800-REDCROSS, or by texting REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

Folks please help with what you can.

    ARC spent over 260 million in administration and promotion last year. They are slow and inefficient when it comes to disaster relief. There are far wiser and better organizations providing help that are more deserving of our time and money. When I give towards a need, I want it going for the need, not for some commercial.
