Donate to OK Tornado VictimsMoore, Oklahoma: Helping others, providing donations, and lending a helping hand is the American Way! Ask the victims of 9/11, Hurricanes Katrina and Andrew, Joplin, MO Tornado, and of course those still in need from Super Storm Sandy, how grateful they were to receive assistance, and pure human kindness from other human beings Worldwide…

Unfortunately, we find ourselves in the wake of another disaster in Moore, OK. Along with your prayers for those who lost family and friends, these people need food, clothing, furniture, shelter, and money. Your donations will go a long way in helping these fellow Americans rebuild their lives in the YEARS to come. With all we spend on Starbucks, fast food, auto fuel and hobbies, we can all spare some canned foods, give up a paid lunch one day and bag it, or sacrifice a $7 coffee to help these people who have non of the above today.

Below are some resources to lend a helping hand. Comment below and share how you were able to donate. God Bless!
