Random Act of Kindness #56

This week's RAK challenge is a no-brainer. Crazy things have been happening to our friends on the east coast and it's high time we do what we can to help. I was sad to hear winter storms are plaguing them today. Nothing like making a difficult job even more difficult.

Don't let yourself feel helpless...donate to the Red Cross today. Every little bit helps.

Text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation

I've experienced the aid of Red Cross first hand. When I was in high school, our town was hit by a tornado. Our house only had a couple thousand dollars worth of damage but our neighbors weren't so fortunate. Their house was demolished! I'm talking nothing left but the foundation. It was crazy!

The morning after, Red Cross volunteers set up their truck in our neighborhood and handed out breakfast. Such a simple act but much needed and much appreciated. They offered hope and a sense of comfort. 

Praying for those affected. May you be blessed by those around you and get back on your feet as soon as possible.

Thanks for the link, amazing how quickly all of those $10 donations add up! Praying that the latest storm is on its way out soon and the recovery can continue.

It's amazing how Mother Nature can blow through and totally change lives just like that. I've heard about so many wonderful helping hands in NY & NJ. Our extended-extended family got their power back just yesterday, only to lose it again from this nice little Nor'easter. Poor things.
