After tornadoes swept across North Texas last Wednesday, I decided to donate all of last weekend’s Football Sweetheart proceeds to the American Red Cross to help where I could. And while I would have much preferred the devastation end there, unfortunately Mother Nature had more in store for the southern states this week.
Now, it’s time to give what we can to Oklahoma and those affected by the horrendous storms Monday night.
By now, most everyone has heard about the EF5 tornado that ripped through Moore, Oklahoma, devastating the small town. Winds blowing in excess of 200 MPH destroyed everything in its seventeen mile path. Children were trapped in elementary schools. Neighborhoods once lined with beautiful homes and landscaped yards now resemble debris-covered terrain. The photos and images seen across the internet and television are absolutely heartbreaking.
Oklahoma is known as “Tornado Alley” but that does not make what happened any easier to understand or accept. Hundreds, if not thousands of people are displaced and in need of something right now. Anything. Everything. They need our help.
So this weekend, starting today (Friday, May 24th) through Memorial Day (Monday, May 27th), I’ve decided to donate all of the Football Sweetheart proceeds to the American Red Cross.
All proceeds from every Football Sweetheart e-book purchased, whether via Amazon or Barnes & Noble, will go to the American Red Cross to help with the recovery process in all the areas affected by the severe spring storms.
Please keep all those affected in your thoughts and let’s hope Mother Nature is kind to us the rest of this storm season.
