I have spent many years of my life in Tornado country. First in Wisconsin and now here in Texas. I've seen them, but thankfully, never too close for comfort. Since I've lived in Texas, the Oklahoma City area has suffered twice from large, devastating tornados. In 1999, my family drove up and helped in Norman, Oklahoma and it was a truly humbling experience. Pictures never quite do the horrific aftermath justice. Now, just over a week ago, they have been hit hard again. Harder, in fact. With company in town and the last days of school at hand, it's been difficult to actually travel to provide the much needed assistance.
So, we're doing what we can from right here in our own small Texas town.
Hopefully it will be quite a party! We have hot dogs and chips being donated by a local church, bounce house and slide by my friend's business, music by the one and only Lucy Scholl. We are asking those who attend to donate the urgently needed goods and of course money to assist in the relief in Little Axe, Oklahoma. Little Axe hasn't had the attention that Moore has, so they desperately need our help. I'm so happy to be able to really DO something to help - from home.
If you live in the area (even outside Prosper) I hope you will come and join the fun.... and bring some batteries or duct tape!!
