Help Foster Family of 5 Okla Tornado

Meet Kara, & Mark parents of 5 kids, pictured above (2 of which are autistic foster children) whose home was destroyed in the May 20th tornado in Moore, Oklahoma. They are certified therapeutic foster parents working with special needs children. To make the situation even more dire, their van quit working & they have no ability to transport the entire family via a single vehicle. Even still, Kara is worried about helping others who are even less fortunate during this tragedy.

They have 3 boys and 2 girls ages 12, 11, 11, 10, and 8. Three of these children are their own and two are fosters. The youngest who is a girl just had her birthday on May 20th. I can't imagine how or what she is feeling.

With Kara's permission I've created this go fund me campaign. Many of my friends have asked how they can help. While my home was undamaged just 1 block from the tornado, you can support me my helping Kara.

She's asked me to keep her full name private out of respect for the family and so she can continue being a foster family. I believe so strongly in helping this family, that I'm making it my personal mission to help them get their life back.

This campaign is a combined effort between myself and Carrie Corbin, @thealphafemme. She lost her home in the May 3, 1999 tornado in Moore, OK. Let's work together to help this giving and amazing family raise money to purchase a new vehicle. They deserve a little joy given all that they do. I'm looking for individuals to donate as well as corporations. I'm sweetening the pot with advertising and sponsorship options starting in the month of July.
