As many of you may know, Laken of Farmhouse is a Tuscaloosa resident who survived the F5 tornadothat tore through her community last week. Together with Caitlin of Roost (and the designer behind my blog header), Shelter for the South was created. I'm so impressed with how amazing both of these women are, not only for their efforts in bringing aid to the south but for their every day inspiration they bring me. Seriously, these are two bloggers that I'm so happy to have in my virtual life.
With that being said, Shelter for the South is a relief effort to bring help to those who have been effected by the many tornadoes and storms that ripped through the south last week. Just one day before, I was reflecting on the day I survived an F5 tornado that ripped through communities in and around Wichita, KS 20 years ago. That day has left a permanent impact on my life, it left a giant scar on my young heart. I can only imagine what everyone who was effected is going through.
There are so many people that need our help. Just as we all came together for Haiti and Japan, we need to come together to help out our own. While I may not have much to give, I know that any little bit I can offer will go a long way. So this is where we all come in. Do what you can to spread the word. Tell all your friends, post on your blog, spread the love on Facebook and Twitter and any other means of communication.
