Consider Giving Your Time and Resources

Below are two differnt organizations that are requesting donations to assist with the Spring storms and International events. I thought now would be a good time to help make these available:

Storm Ravaged Residents Urged to Register with Safe and Well
American Red Cross Responds to Floods and Tornadoes in Central United States

Once an individual registers on Safe and Well, loved ones across the country can search the site and read messages. As residents of five states continue to feel the full impact of the recent tornadoes, severe storms and flooding – in Indiana, Iowa, Nebraska, West Virginia and Wisconsin – registering on Safe and Well can bring great peace of mind to people trying to contact them. 

The Safe and Well website is easy to use:

  1. Visit, and click on the Safe and Well link
  2. If you are currently being affected by these disasters,  click: “List Myself as Safe and Well”, enter your pre-disaster address and phone number, and select any of the standard message options
  3. If you are concerned about a loved one, click “Search” and enter the person’s name and pre-disaster phone number OR address.  If they have registered, you will be able to view the messages that they posted.
  4. If you don’t have internet access, you can call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to register yourself and your family. Follow the prompts for disaster information.

Safe and Well is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and is accessible in both English and Spanish.
