I'm sure that you've all heard about the devastation in Joplin. I'm praying that God helps these people work through it...I can't even imagine the fear and uncertainty they are feeling right now. Especially since these storms are not finished yet.
I have a friend, Allison, who blogs over at The Story Of Five, and I was especially struck by this picture on her blog.
I've spent a LOT of time in hospitals, and they always feel like a safe place to be. I can't imagine the terror that the patients felt as this tornado ripped through it.
Ironically, Allison's husband was supposed to start his new job at this hospital in July. They are preparing their move to this very town, so this has hit close to home for them. She wanted to do something to help, so she is doing an awesome fundraiser.
Allison is a Thirty One consultant, so she is hosting an online party until the end of the month here: Thirty One Party . ALL profits are being donated to either United Way or a needy family. If you don't know what Thirty One is, they sell ADORABLE bags of all shapes and sizes. They can also be personalized with names. Allison has been a great support to me through the birth of Carter, and the loss of him, so I felt compelled to share. I think this is a great way to help out. Even if you can't purchase something from her party, maybe you could help us spread the word....because maybe, just maybe somebody else you know can help.
