My name is Chris Adair, I live in Cedar Rapids, IA but am originally from Marshalltown, IA. On July 19th, 2018, an EF3 tornado directly hit Marshalltown, IA.  This is the town that I grew up in and it is painful to see the amount of damage and devastation that was sustained by the community.  It is going to be a long road to recovery and anything we can do to help would be greatly appreciated.  All donations will be directed to families affected by the tornado.  Those effected apply directly through MICA ( www.micaonline.org) via an application process which verifies proof of loss that was a result of the tornado.  Upon approval, from MICA, the funds are then distributed to the families to utilize.  I am working directly with MICA's Development Director to ensure the funds go specifically to the Tornado Fund.  Upon receipt and deposit of the funds to my account, I will immediately be presenting MICA with a check in person, made out to them, in the full amount received.   Thank you so much for donating and/or sharing.

Last week I had the opportunity to present a check, on behalf of all the donors here, donations from individuals with my company, and the Fortunaire Foundation (non-profit charitable org that works closely with my company) for $5,000 to MICA in Marshalltown! I've attached that picture, along with the picture of the check I received from this particular fund. That amount reflects the GoFundMe page here, minus their administrative fee. There was a late donation that came in to get us to $2,400, with the rest of the monies coming from the above mentioned organizations. To all those that gave, thank you again as these funds will be a big help to those families who still have a long road to recovery.
Sincerely,
Chris Adair

I wanted to update everyone since it has been awhile. I am going to retrieve the funds and present to MICA as soon as we receive the match from our charitable foundation. As you probably know, those have to get approved through a board, but we should have finalized this week. Thank you again for the donations, I know the tornado has diminished from the news but there is a lot to still be done in Marshalltown.

Thank you to all those that have donated so far. We are up to $950 in total donations and I'm hoping to surpass the $1,000 mark by the end of the week. Also, I am currently working with a charitable foundation in my company that may double the donated amount. I will post an update on that as soon as I hear back from them. My plan is to present a check to MICA within two weeks. Thank you again.
