A Day For Charity

By now we all of us have seen the horrible pictures out of Oklahoma, with the threat of severe weather on tap again today.

For those that want to help out, there are many charities available such as the Red Cross. where you can either follow that link or just text REDCROSS to 90999 and $10 will appear on your next phone bill for their disaster relief efforts.  Just go ahead and do that now while you’re thinking about it.

There are always local needs as well.  Our friends over at Williamson Brothers BBQ posted this on their Facebook Page today and I’ll pass it along for those in the Cobb County area:

Ok Friends,

Please help!! The Northwest Ga. YWCA (Cobb Co. Shelter for women and children who suffer from domestic and sexual abuse) is in desperate need for diapers! Therefore, we are helping with a diaper drive. There are over 225 women and children housed in this secret shelter and there are hundreds of victims everyday in our area. Please, I know you all have diapers that your babies grew out of or never used! Please drop them off at our Marietta location:)

Thanks in advance and please please share:)

Some needs are small and some are great, but there is always something we can do to help out some others.  If neither of the above strikes your need, find some way to help someone else in a way you see fit.

  1. In addition to the storms in Oklahoma, there were some damaging storms in Georgia on Sunday as well. From what the power company is telling me, we actually had a tornado very briefly touch down on the corner of our farm but hop over the house and barn (thank goodness) and land again about half a mile away. I didn’t realize tornadoes did that, but was just glad the damage wasn’t worse than it was. (It took out my Internet service for about 36 hours and we’ve still got 3 large trees sitting on fencelines that the power lines weren’t removed from until halfway through yesterday. Little bit of roof and other damage, but we mostly came out okay. All horses and humans were unharmed, which was our primary concern.)

    However, I’ve heard of others who have had trees land on their vehicles and homes and could probably use a hand from some able bodied kind souls. Times like these are perfect opportunities to show that we don’t need the government to take care of us… we’re perfectly capable of lending a hand to another human when we see someone in need. 🙂

    In these cynical days involving charities, the Red Cross is one of the good ones. They will spend the money where it helps the most.
