How to Help Alabama

As we all know, last week in the midst of Royal Wedding fever and before they killed Bin Laden, the southern half of our country was ravaged by tornadoes. And unfortunately, all that other stuff seems to have over shadowed the turmoil that is going on in Alabama and other states.

I am bothered by the lack of attention and know that that means less help for the people. So, I will do my own small part here and share a few ways that you can help. Bloggie friend Rachel at Grasping for Objectivity is in Alabama and while grateful her family is safe, wants to help her torn apart state. One way is Christian Service Mission which has an Amazon wish list . I know I struggle with which organization to send money to and want to know what that money is going to be used for. Well, with this option you get to decide. The ship to address is already attatched to the list. All you have to do is follow the link and place an order for as little or as much as you'd like. 

Go ahead and check out Rachel's site, as she lists some other ways you can help via Twitter and Facebook.

Don't feel pressure to help either, I just wanted to offer some options for those of us who feel helpless far away but still want to do SOMETHING. And of course, prayers will always be a blessing.
