“The Deadliest Single Tornado Since 1953″

Many of you have heard about the deadly tornado that ripped through Joplin, Missouri a few days ago. The damage–devastating. The death toll–incomprehensible.

Weather experts are going so far as to call this an F5 tornado…the deadliest single tornado since 1953. This tragedy hits all too close to home for me, as I lived outside of Joplin for three years while I attended college.

I know Joplin. I know people from Joplin. My heart breaks for those I know and those I don’t know who have been affected by this natural disaster.

I have, however, been so encouraged by the outpouring of love and support from compassionate people and organizations. The following is just a brief list of organizations and causes working to provide relief and aid to the people of Joplin. If you have the time and a few pennies to give, I encourage you to get involved.

Note: With all charities and non-profits, make sure any site you visit is properly registered and trustworthy before sending money. Also, do you research and make sure your help does the most good possible.
