Donovan Family Disaster Recovery Fund

Stephen Donovan, an employee with our company and a good friend of mine lost his home and all of his belongings to a tornado that touched down on Christmas Day.  He and his family are ok but they are basically starting over from scratch. 

Here is an official news report from the local news channel.  Mrs. Donovan is interviewed in the story.

Please consider donating what ever you can to help him and his family!  All proceeds will go to Stephen and his family.  I will cover any Paypal or transaction fees.

Sadly I lost my home and all my belongings in a tornado that touched down on top of my house Christmas Day.
Thanking the grace of the good lord, my entire family was in Mississippi for christmas dinner.
Say a prayer for me and my family, as we pick up what little remains of our belongings   tomorrow.
I am not sure at this time exactly when I will be back in the office, I will coordinate with my boss on this.
I have a lot of things to straighten out but, we will be okay, all my babies are alive and okay.
My kids have to be back in school on Jan 3rd, so I have a short term goal of getting temporary housing with family by then.
For now I am at my brother-in-laws in Mississipi and will check email.
