TORNADO RELIEF....red cross donation


I have spent Saturday and Sunday morning watching videos of this devastating news from the Midwestern tornadoes.  I can't even imagine what these people must be experiencing.  Loss of family, pets, homes,churches, schools.  How do they begin to put their lives back together?  I was moved to make a modest donation.  You can too.  Some of those interviewed were just thankful to God for sparing their lives.  I have put a link at the bottom of this post.  It is really simple to do if you can afford to donate.  Any little bit helps.

It's horrendous these things!! I haven't seen any weather like this since I left America. I just wish there was more for people to do before these things come and after, it's just not right. The images are heartbreaking. I hope that anyone that can will give what they can in either money or goods that can help someone in need. Times like these we're reminded that people are more important than items and if we don't have love in our hearts to share then we aren't very well as humans!! Thanks for popping by petal, I haven't had anyone steal my pictures to my knowledge, but I have seen it happen to my friends so much, it's not right. I do sometimes put my name on them and sometimes I forget (I should do this more often) Ones of myself I don't often do, but any of my actual photographic work I always put my name on. They should make it harder for people to swipe others' work really!! I hope your weekend has been grand..it's been sunny here today, so marvellous, I just can't wait for Spring in all it's glory to come!! BIG hugs to you my sweet friend!! XXXX

Dawn, Thanks for your continuing support. It seems to be getting better but I still don't know week to week if they will keep me on. I guess only time will tell.
I live in Indiana and feel so bad for these people. I was watching the news this morning. They actually have more help than they currently need. They said the volunteers that have come from all over the state are clogging the interstates. We hoosiers are a resourceful and compassionate bunch!
and Is my scarf a Fendi? Probably wouldn't know Fendi if he bit me on the curvey butt! The initials on it are LF and it was made in Italy so who the hell knows.
