Nearly four months after the 2013 Moore tornado, which killed 23 people and injured 377 others, the people of Oklahoma continue to recover in the face of adversity. Your contribution took a huge weight off their shoulders, allowing many to begin a speedy recovery. Several GlobalGiving partner organizations were able to respond to the needs of these people thanks to your donation, here’s what some of them were able to accomplish:
Thank you for your contribution to the Oklahoma Tornado Relief Fund. Your kindness allowed for these organizations to quickly mobilize and helped those who needed it the most, offer training courses in disaster relief, and helped animals reconnect with their families.
We will keep you updated in the following months; however, feel free to let us know if you have any questions or thoughts in the comment section below.
It has been with great sadness that all of us here at GlobalGiving have been following the news of the 1.3-mile wide tornado that ripped through Moore, Oklahoma on May 20, which damaged hundreds of homes, businesses, schools and hospitals and killed dozens with wind speeds up to 210 mph. Within several hours, GlobalGiving partner organizations were already on the ground working to help communities affected. Your donations to the Oklahoma Tornado Relief Fund are supporting these organizations in this important work:
GlobalGiving In-the-Field team member Jenn Eason, a proud Moore, Oklahoma native, wanted us to pass along this personal note:
“I am so thankful for the money you have donated going towards the relief of my friends and family back home... and THEY are so thankful. I am amazed that after four days, GlobalGiving’s original goal was exceeded! It brings tears to my eyes!”
Thank you again for all of the support that you have already provided to these organizations. We will continue to update you in the coming weeks and months on how your donations are put to work to rebuild these communities.
