Whether you watched the massive tornado decimate Moore, OK, from 20 or 2000 miles away, you probably want to reach out and hug those survivors. And most of us want to help.
In case you're not close enough to volunteer your chainsaw skills, or your time in a cemetery wearing clothes you can throw away, there are other venues for official relief funds.
With two elementary schools completely destroyed and others damaged, I was delighted to receive an email from DonorsChoose this morning, asking for donations to a relief fund for teachers in Moore. Right now these teachers are dealing with the same adverse conditions as everyone else, so there are no specific projects to choose. If you like, the organization can show you similar projects funded through donation programs for Joplin in 2011 and Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
You can donate by clicking this link now. If you want to act later, don't worry; they made me a widget for my sidebar! Give early and often.
