When it rains it pours

After my former abode in West Texas was hit by fires, my other former abode of Missouri has been struck by disaster as well. I know Joplin, MO, because that's the last town we go through in MO on the road from MO to TX. (Conversely, it's the first Missouri town we enter on the way to Columbia.) An opportunity for giving has arisen that I wanted to pass along:

A MO family has pledged to match up to $50,000 in donations made to this fund, beginning this morning, and 100% of proceeds go straight to Joplin with ZERO overhead.

Extra phone operators are standing by at Heart of Missouri United Way for Joplin Tornado Relief Fund!

Call 573-443-4523, go online to http://uwheartmo.org/, or text JOPLIN to 864833 to make a $10 donation.
