Love to Joplin

While watching Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (Joplin) last night, I kept thinking how blessed I am and how lucky our family was that we were not affected by the devastating tornado that ripped through Joplin on May 22, 2011. I live in Southwest Missouri and I remember not being able to get in touch with a friend who lives in Joplin and feeling scared for her and her family. I also remember crying for days for people while feeling so completely helpless. The stories of loss were beyond heartbreaking.


I was thrilled last night when I read that Erica from Joplin had reached out to Deedee Wills to ask bloggers to send some of their items to help lift the spirits of other Joplin teachers. What a wonderful thing she is doing for her co-workers and what a blessing it is that Deedee continued the generosity by offering the same opportunity to other teachers. I hope that you will all feel compelled to email Erica with something that you might find beneficial to Joplin teachers. I'm sure it will be appreciated. If you do, be sure to link up to Deedee's blog by clicking on the picture above.

    1. You are so welcome! I wish I had more to send. The majority of my items are free so I didn't have as much to send as others, but hopefully you can find things that will be beneficial to you that are freebies, as well. Do you blog, Suzun?

      Blessings,
