By now you have heard the news of the devastation caused by the tornado in Moore, OK. The stats are history in the making: a rating of at least an EF4, winds 166 to 200 mph, an estimation of size to be at least two miles wide at one point as it moved through Moore. While these stats are mind shattering its the stories that are most heart breaking. 38,000 people without power.
Vine videos from @GeminiTiger86 right in the midst of devastation. Highways completely shut down. An elementary school full of children demolished.
Our plan is simple. We're partnering with Convoy of Hope and are going go raise $15,000 in 7 days. Why 7 days? In these first 7 days the town of Moore, OK will be consumed with clearing out destruction and accessing their needs.
Once those needs are known we want to be able to give them the funds to help them rebuild in the long term.
Leadership communicator, Andy Stanley, once said, "Do for ONE what you wish you could for EVERYONE." We know we can't help everyone. But we can help SOMEONE. Join us in our effort to raise this money in the next 7 days. We believe in giving, we believe in you, and we believe in Oklahoma.
