Tornado Relief

On November 17, 2013 a devastating F4 Tornado ripped through Washington, IL. My Aunt Charlotte was able to get her two grandchildren Jay and Raegan (pictured above) into the basement bathroom just in time to save their lives. Mark, Brooke, Jay and Raegan have lost their home and Aunt Charlotte has lost her car. Luckily they have insurance but Aunt Charlotte's car will be totaled and the payment won't be enough to purchase a replacement vehicle.

Any gift is appreciated and you can help us celebrate this hero! Pictured below is the destruction they are facing and that is her car on the left side marked with "OK" meaning they did not find any injured persons inside.

Any amount of support you can give will help in more ways than you could ever imagine. All donations will be used to get this hero back behind the wheel driving her grandchildren around Washington, IL!
