How you can help the Alabama Tornado Victims
There are many ways to help!
The people of Alabama need your help!
Hackleburg was hit by a EF-5 Tornado - the strongest rating on the enhanced fujita scale, over 200 mile per hour winds.
I am aware that there we're several towns affected by the outbreak and if you want to help any of the other towns I will tell you how you can help and give you some suggestions from many different scenarios.
I know that the economy is not what it used to be but, if you can give money that would be great, I recommend that you donate to The American Red Cross.
You can click the link above and send money online to help the victims and even name the town you want the money to go to.
Or you can mail a check and in the section on the check where it says for, you can put in Hackleburg,Alabama or the name of the town you would like to help.
Just mail the check to the:
American Red Cross
300 Chase Park South Hoover, AL 35244
If you cannot give money go HERE - this is the Red Cross official donation sites where you can donate everything from,food,clothing,water and other essentials.
Notice that there are many grocery stores that you can visit and buy items and donate them right there while you are in the store.
Simple things like chap-stick or sun-tan lotion,toilet paper.soap.towels virtually everything is needed.
Remember that many of these people have lost it all... and they are grateful for anything they get, I have seen people cry just because they we're given a toothbrush.
If you just don't have any extra money right now maybe you can get together with a few of your friends and have a yard-sale or a bake sale and raise some money that way.
It feels really good when you do things to help others. have you ever heard the saying it is better to give than to receive? It truly does. especially when it is for people who have lost so much.
If you are in a band, maybe you could have a benefit show for the victims.
If you are a auctioneer.... maybe you could have a consignment auction for the victims.
My point is this...if there is a will then there is a way.
You can find a way to help if you will only try.
Thanks for reading this hub & may GOD BLESS US ALL.
