I wanted to update everyone on the Crawford family. First off a BIG HUG and THANK YOU to all those who donated! Wow! We were able to send them $2,221.09 last night! The donations continue to come in and as they do we will send the total out every single night so that the money can be used right away.
Kelly is overwhelmed by your gracious giving and love. With that said, PLEASE keep the donations coming. It is so easy to think that because others are contributing that they no longer have needs and that is far from the truth. You can do so here in any amount :
Many people have contacted me wondering where to send items (they were able to recover their clothes, so they do not need that right now.) Here is an address---please consider sending a giftcard if you are able.
We thought that some readers who would like to give extra help to their family could purchase from their family business. Kelly is an author of several ebooks, and you can choose from several helpful topics--parenting,homeschooling, financial freedom, health and cooking to name a few. They are very low in price just starting at $4.97. You can also buy all her books as a bundle.
She also has a CD of Scripture memory songs that is just lovely! You can listen to a sample if you click on the link. Please consider making a purchase to help money get directly to their family in the great time of need. The CD is only $10.
These can be automatically downloaded and don't require any extra work from Kelly to distribute. AND lastly I need you to share the word again. We can't do this alone--we need the help of everyone out there and you, do readers, can be part of the team by spreading the word. A reader (thank you, Misty!)has created a button for all you bloggers to share on your sidebars and in your posts that links back to Kelly's site stating how to help. Here it is:
Please also get the word out by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, blogs, email and anywhere else you can think of so we can help this dear family. You can use the share buttons at the end of this post to spread the word.
ALSO, many of you may have also heard about the tragedy of Tom Lee, the heroic father who threw his body over his children as the tornado hit and lost his life. If you would like to donate to his family or any other you may do so HERE.
Thank you so much for your help--it means SOOOOOO much. The Lord is pleased as He see's us all doing our part to help our fellow brother's and sister's in Christ and to pray for them and their neighbors.
