Summary

While most of us were watching TV, eating dinner, or even sleeping the Central States were hit by a storm system culminating in tornadoes that left in its path destruction and unconfirmed deaths. At the time this project was written the hardest hit were Mayflower and Vilonia, Arkansas, by a tornado that left a path 30 miles long and half-mile wide. Three years ago from this past Sunday the 27th of April. 122 tornadoes touchdown and 316 people were lost, now, as then, survivors need your help.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Disasters do not distinguish it touches everyone of all nationalities, beliefs, economic levels, orientation, young, old, special needs, disabled, animals, it does not matter, it damages or destroys anything in its path. This destruction leaves the survivors in need; they need emotional support, among the other essentials like food and water. Many of these survivors have lost everything and are under insured or without insurance, these people are in need of you and organizations like ours.

How will this project solve this problem?

Do Your Part reaches out to the most vulnerable, and with your help we can provide them with the essential needs to get these survivors back on their feet and headed toward sustainability. This project will help to provide crisis coaching where needed, and support for the children. We also reach out to the animals that also are in need of assistance with injuries, shelter, and finding their owners.

Potential Long Term Impact

Sustainability is what we strive to attain, to bring survivors back to believing in themselves, their hopes, and their dreams. People need to know that when they are in distress that their are helping hands to reach out and guide them, assist them and have faith in them to find their strength to survive and move forward.
