To Autism With Love is doing what they do best, they are helping families in need. One of their admins lives very close to the devastation caused by storms and tornadoes in Moore, Oklahoma. She has committed to helping those effected by the storms and their path of destruction. As part of their Oklahoma Recovery Project, TAWL is requesting assistance to collect desperately needed items to aide families who are displaced by the storms.
Normally, I am not one to volunteer or jump in to offer help, because our life is not conducive to such things. Every time I have attempted to organize or assist in something to benefit others, I have had to back out before completion, and end up feeling like I failed everyone. I vow to make this time different, and I will complete the task, because the families in Oklahoma deserve it!
Fortunately, there is already an extraordinary group of people in Chicago, who go out and help those in need after natural disasters. They left for their first run to Moore today, but will be back to collect more donations before leaving again on June 10th to return to Oklahoma and deliver fresh supplies. They have agreed to take all that I can collect, on their next trip.
The group here in Chicago, as well as TAWL and all their supporters, are truly Angels who walk among us. Please help them give the gift of love, support and hope to the many families living amongst devastation. If you are in the Chicagoland area, I am willing to pick up donations, and deliver them to this wonderful group, before they head out for their second run. I will need all donations by Friday June 7th, so that I can deliver them on Saturday June 8th. You can contact me at Jest_Tu_Positive@yahoo.com or via our FaceBook page.
If you are not in the Chicagoland area, but would like to donate items or funds, please visit TAWL’s Website or FaceBook Page. Also, if you are a page admin and would like to get involved with TAWL’s efforts, please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also The Oklahoma Relief Run crew is in desperate need of gas cards. They are hoping to take several trucks on the June 10th run, which will require thousands of dollars in gas to get them there and back, while helping with clean-up efforts. **Fundraising link is live**
May God bless all those affected by the destruction in Oklahoma. May His Angels watch over and guide all the wonderful people who are willing to help these families rebuild their lives; and move forward surrounded by love, support and hope.
**Additional Note: Donations of gently used clothing will also be accepted. Please wash it before donating, and I will gladly come pick it up.**
