Last week, when I first heard about the tornadoes that devastated a portion of our nation, I was saddened. Later in the day when I first saw photos and video footage of the storm and it’s aftermath, my heart broke. Then to hear the first hand stories of the victims… All I could do was cry out to God and ask Him to touch those affected. I can’t explain the emotions I felt or the thoughts that were going through my mind. All I know is that right now, the only thing that can be done is to pray and help in every way that we can.
At this moment, the best way to help is to donate funds or to volunteer time. Thanks to the wonderful and creative ladies that I am blessed to know via the Inspired Bloggers Network, I am able to present ways that both you and I can help those in need.
The devastation in the United State’s Midwest region breaks our hearts, and the Inspired Bloggers Network desires to use our influence and the power of our blogs to make a difference.
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.
