There are so many things I want to say but none of them matter right now because it isn’t about me or how I am feeling about this terrible tragedy. What is important is that there are ways we, from our living rooms, can help. Below is a list of ways you can provide some much needed relief to the families in Oklahoma. Every little bit helps. One dollar donated by one million people is one million dollars worth of relief for those in need. Please give anything you can.
You can donate online to the Red Cross you can simply text the word REDCROSS to 90999 and donate $10.00.
Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief
According to NBC, the Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief is has pledged all donations will, “go straight to help those in need providing tree removal services, laundry services and meals to victims of disasters.”
A donation to Feeding America will help with their pledge to “provide truckloads of food” to those displaced in Oklahoma.
The Los Angeles based organization says it is “readying essential material aid — emergency, shelter and cleaning supplies.” You donate to them online or text the word AID to 50555 to donate $10.00.
The Salvation Army is pledging food and water to those in need. You can help them donate online or text STORM to 80888 to contribute $10.
I will continue to update this list as the week goes on.
