Donate to Moore, Oklahoma

May 21, 2013

I had something else scheduled for this space.  Then, I saw this video from CBS This Morning about the devastation caused by the recent tornado in Moore, Oklahoma.  The video is so powerful, I would caution you to grab some tissues.

If you would like to donate to help the people of Moore, the Oklahoma City newspaper is recommending that you donate to either the American Red Cross or the Salvation Army.

You can donate to the Red Cross by texting “REDCROSS” to 90999 which will send a $10 donation (do not text from your government issued or employer issued phone unless you personally pay the bill).  You can also donate $10 to the Salvation Army, who will be setting up mobile feeding units, by texting “STORM” to 80888.

You can also donate online to the American Red Cross’s disaster relief fund.

    As a transplanted Okie with family in Norman and Oklahoma City, I thank you for posting this. Family in Norman reports that the Salvation Army has been stalwart in their response to the crises.
    Donating from your phone can be tricky – some providers take a fee from the donation for “handling,” and the non-profit might not see the funds for several weeks based on the billing cycles. Always good to check to make sure the money you donate is getting to where it needs to go and in a timely manner.

    I’m here in Oklahoma City and really appreciate this post. Love reading the blog on a regular basis… and glad to know others are thinking and praying for us here in Oklahoma during this tough time.

    Today marks a year in DC for me, but I’ll always be an Okie. “Oklahoma isn’t a place. It’s something in your blood. It’s something that you do. It’s the shirt off your back and a tear in your eye and the giddyup in your soul.” Thank you for posting the info on how to help my home state. My DC fashion guru, you’re truly doing something bigger than just what we’re wearing, and I appreciate that. It makes a difference. While my family is all safe, I have friends who have lost their apartments and all their belongings, and it will take a lot for the OKC community to rebuild. But we do, we will, and we thank you all for any help you can give!

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]
