Helping Those in Need - Tornado Victims in Joplin, MO

>> Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Yesterday, a tornado touched down in Joplin, MO killing over 100 people. This latest tornado to hit the South has raised the death toll to more than 400 people in recent months after a series of devastating twisters. Today they are expecting yet another big storm. The people in this area NEED our help. If you are able and willing, here's what you can do:
Grab a flat rate Priority shipping box from USPS - there are 2 or 3 different sizes to choose from. You can fill up one or two with items from your stockpile. We have all gotten some amazing deals on body wash, razors, and Crayola items lately and these would be perfect to send! Remember, these people have lost everything. Please consider sending at least 1 box of items to help.

We have such an amazing opportunity in front of us to use our stockpiles and couponing skills for something really good - please take advantage of it! Also, if you know of any other ways to help, please comment on this post!
