Please Help Joplin – Bloggers for Joplin

As most of your know, on Sunday May 22nd, the town of Joplin, Missouri was devastated by an F5 tornado, the highest rating given to tornados.  This will be a day that will forever been etched in our minds but even more so for my hubby and I.  On Sunday evening, we were celebrating our 12th year anniversary when we got word of the tornado damage.  We watched helplessly as Mike Bettes from the Weather channel arrived on the scene just minutes after the tornado hit.

It brought back memories from when an EF-4 tornado hit southern Illinois 8 years ago.  Good friends of ours received a direct hit.  That year we spent Mother’s Day helping them recovering their belongings and lives.  We were able to go to them and help.  Although, not directly impacted by the Joplin, MO, tornado, we’ve had this sense of helplessness.

Our hearts go out to the victims of the Joplin, Missouri tornado.  We keep watch as the death toll continues to rise.  Currently there are 132 victims confirmed dead and there are over 700 with injuries.  Almost a week later, there are still  people unaccounted for. We wish we could be there to help. Until two days ago, we didn’t know what to do.  I received an email about Bloggers for Joplin.  There wasn’t a second thought about joining their efforts.  As a member of Bloggers for Joplin, we are going to do what we do best:  Blog and use Social Media.
