My heartbreak grows as I wake up to the news that more people have lost their lives to yesterday’s devastating tornado in southwest Oklahoma City and Moore.  Thank you all for your concern and to those who reached out to me on twitter.  My family and I are fine and are among the lucky ones who didn’t lose their lives or homes.  There were so many that weren’t as lucky, below are ways that you can help.

 

–  To ensure your Red Cross donations go to those in the affected area check out, http://www.redcross.org/ok/oklahoma-city/about/chapters/central-oklahoma

– The Red Cross said the best way to assist families is to make a donation to www.redcross.org/okc or www.redcross.org or texting REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
