This has been a difficult week for many across the south. My heart has been heavy for all of you affected by tornadoes. I’ve heard from many of you about the damages in your area. Some are still without power three days later and are told it will be another week, others are much worse off with cities leveled and families still searching for loved ones. There are many areas affected that the news hasn’t even mentioned.
I want to urge you this week to make your Friday Finals be a week that ends with generosity. The south is known for sweet hospitality and right now our neighbors need us.
How can you help:
Your generosity does not have to be money, it can be donating things you already have. Look in your pantries, cupboards, and closets. Send personal care items, non perishable foods, blankets, and even clothes. There are many places running donation drives so I don’t doubt you can find a place nearby to drop items off at.
If you know of any locations leave a comment and we’ll get a list started.
If you are game for it head to your local Red Cross and donate a pint. Being a Registered Nurse, this is a cause that is so dear to me and so easy for you. I promise it only hurts for a second (they teach us to say that in nursing school).
That is what we are doing this week. We realized that we had plenty and could make do only heading out for milk and bread. So we are donating our $50 food budget this week to Samaritan’s Purse Disaster Relief.
Another way to donate money:
You can order All You Magazine through Southern Savers and donate $9 with your purchase. You get the best price possible for the magazine and get to help others! All proceeds are going to the West Alabama Food Bank that serves the areas hardest hit.
1. Head over here , click “Support Us”
2. Search for All You Magazine.
3. Order 2.5 years (30 issues) for $25
You will pay 83¢ an issue which is awesome for a magazine with $50-$100 in coupons every month!
There are probably even more ways to give and you guys are creative so if you have another idea to help leave a comment.
For those that did go shopping this week feel free to leave a link to your savings post or a comment below. I challenge you also to update your savings posts with a way that you helping!
