I am posting this from a bloggy friend, Kristin at Couponing to Disney.  She lives in Moody, Alabama which was hit hard by the devastating tornadoes. 

Update: We have received approximately 40 boxes so far. I am so thankful to you all! Please continue to inform all your friends and family about this way to donate to the tornado victims!

Online: You can ship items directly to the church via Amazon, Walmart, Target, etc. A few people have ordered cases of diapers, wipes and even food. Anything that you want to send would be appreciated!

Share it: Please feel free to share this information via your blog, email, Facebook, Twitter, whatever. The more people that know of this option, the better!

Used items: We will gladly accept used clothing, shoes, and household items. Please use your own judgment on if they are in good shape or not.

Wednesday my town was hit by a tornado. We suffered loss of homes, businesses, vehicles, etc. Praise the Lord we did not suffer many losses of life. Unfortunately, it wasn’t over. Later in the day, more tornadoes touched the ground in Alabama killing at least 250 people. They are reporting that the tornadoes were EF3, EF4 and EF5s (which is the worst kind).

Southerners are in dire need of some of the most basic necessities and I am working with my local church to start an online donation drive to help the victims of these storms. If you have any items that you would love to mail to us, we will gladly take them. Here are a few things that we are in need of:

Baby supplies (including diapers, wipes, A&D Ointment, baby food and juices)
Bungee Cords
