Good Vibes and Healing Thoughts and how to Help Oklahoma Tornado Victims

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

One of my favorite graphic design blogs is Lemon and Lavender and if you know the blog, you know the story of this family that has lived across the world and has landed back in the Midwest recently. While they are safe from the tornadoes, so many were not so lucky and Ashley, the author behind Lemon and Lavender, has graciously posted ways to help those affected by the storms on her blog today. 

Please read her blog post here and we just wanted to take the opportunity to continue to forward the names of organizations that are looking for physical and monetary help for the victims in Oklahoma.

If you are in the Oklahoma City area and you want to help with the clean up in the coming days please call the Red Cross at their local office 405-228-9500. Also to donate to the Red Cross visit their website: or text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10
Also if you are in the area Feed the Children is preparing emergency disaster relief supplies to aid victims of the Moore tornadoes and will be accepting donations from the public on Tuesday, May 21, from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. at the McCormick Distribution Center (29 N. McCormick). Items that will be accepted are diapers, canned goods, non-perishable food and snack items, water and sports drinks.
Text STORM to 80888 to donate $10 to the Salvation Army
Text FOOD to 32333 for Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma
And we wanted to add...
Operation USA Los Angeles-based international relief agency Operation USA announced it's providing emergency aid where needed to community-based health organizations across Oklahoma. Donate online, by phone at 1-800-678-7255, or by check made out to Operation USA, 7421 Beverly Blvd., PH, Los Angeles, CA 90036. You can also donate $10 by texting AID to 50555. Corporate donations of bulk quantities of disaster-appropriate supplies are also being requested.
Convoy of Hope
The Missouri-based nonprofit organization has done work in other disasters, including the Haiti earthquake, with a mission of getting food and water to those after disaster strikes. Now it's doing the same
for Moore, Okla. You can donate online here. Convoy of Hope is also going the crowd-sourced route, using HopeMob, a site similar to Kickstarter but for raising money to help disaster victims and others in need, which charges no fees to the organizations that use it. Convoy of Hope's goal on the site is to raise $15,000 in seven days to help Moore.
"Why 7 days? In these first 7 days the town of Moore, OK will be consumed with clearing out destruction and accessing their needs," HopeMob says on its site. "Once those needs are known we want to be able to give them the funds to help them rebuild in the long term." As of Tuesday, nearly $9,500 was raised.

Please donate if you can and if you do email us proof of your donation {} and we will send you some of our infamous seed balls just for being a kind soul. And at the very least, send good vibes their way. They sure can use all of the positive energy this world can offer.
