The Wizard of Oz is a wonderful movie about a young girl who is taken to the amazing land of Oz by a tornado. I don't know about you, but the movie is so engaging, that I have never thought about the destruction left behind in a tornado so strong to pick up your house and take you to another land.
But I'm sure the residents of Moore, Oklahoma are feeling it now. After seeing all the devastation and ruin on the TV the last few days, my heart is aching for these families. So many of them have lost loved ones, lost valuables, and everything in their world is turned upside down.
I have a small inkling of what they are going through after having personally been a victim of Mother Nature in the Midwest floods a few years ago. It took us years to recover from the water that rushed into our home destroying everything in it's path. But at least our mess was contained...we could pick through our trash and see the waterlogged remnants of our home.
The victims of the Moore tornado have nothing but a pile of rubble.
My heart breaks for them. And I need to pay back all those who helped us so much through our recovery. So for the rest of the month, I will donate 1/2 of the proceeds of any purchase made through our website.
If you've been thinking about purchasing a name plaque for a loved one's birthday, or some chocolate covered Oreos for a summer party, or one of our sweet digital files, consider doing it now.
Help out these grieving families and give yourself a sweet treat as a reward.
