I originally had a post up today about my normal stuff.. where to find this dress or what color my lipstick was in a certain picture, but it just didn’t feel right knowing the grief the people in Oklahoma are experiencing today. I know many of us want to help but just don’t know how, especially from so far away. Here’s a list of ways you can get involved…
American Red Cross– Text REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief, donate online, or donate by phone at 1-800-RED CROSS.If you’re searching for a missing relative, check Red Cross Safe & Well site. And please register if you’re within the disaster region. The site is designed to make communication easier after a tragedy like this.
Salvation Army– Donate online or text STORM to 80888 to contribute $10 to the Salvation Army’s relief efforts or make a donation by phone at 1-800-SAL-ARMY. If you’re sending a check make sure you put the words “Oklahoma Tornado Relief” on the check, and mail it to: The Salvation Army, P.O. Box 12600, Oklahoma City, OK., 73157.
Operation USA– Donate online, by phone at 1-800-678-7255, or by check made out to Operation USA, 7421 Beverly Blvd., PH, Los Angeles, CA 90036. You can also donate $10 by texting AID to 50555. Corporate donations of bulk quantities of disaster-appropriate supplies are also being requested.
Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief– This organization says donations will “go straight to help those in need providing tree removal services, laundry services and meals to victims of disasters.” It is requesting monetary donations (It says clothing is NOT needed). Send checks to: BGCO, Attn: Disaster Relief, 3800 N. May Ave., Oklahoma City, OK., 73112.
I know I didn’t cover them all, so if you have any others leave them in the comment section and I’ll add them throughout the day.
