Relief Fund for Survivors of Oklahoma Tornadoes

by Do Your Part, Inc

Do Your Part is humbled by all the support each of you has shown, along with that of Global Giving, with this project and other projects of ours. There is still much to do in Oklahoma, and people have been very generous in assisting these survivors in reaching sustainability.  

Since the last report, which mostly keyed in on all the holiday season gift giving, there has continued to be repairs or replacement of items lost as people enter into new or repaired places of residence.

As we enter, yet, another severe weather season, we think of each of you and where you live and wish all of you safety each and every day, to you and your families. We hope none of you live in Mississippi as they were hit by a tornado in the early morning hours on April 7th, with 60 homes damaged in the tornado and more with the flooding that followed, if you ever are in need, please contact us. We will be opening a page for Mississippi.

We end this report with a few pictures of the Hillian families goat farm, this is a family that we have been helping from the beginning. This family had so much damage, with fencing completely gone, animals scattered, and severe mold from the storm. This family would like to send their personal thank you out to all of you for your help, because of your support that helped replace the fencing that saved their goats and their livelihood. 

As always thank you all for your help,


Do Your Part would once again like to thank GlobalGiving and all of you who have graciously donated to help the amazing and proud people of Oklahoma. Your support has made it easy for us to continue assisting families with the needs they have in order to reach sustainability.
Since the last report we have aided a couple and their infant with enough supplies and materials to get back on their feet, they are doing very well, and have asked to pass along their thanks to all who have helped. Another family of four also sends along many thanks to all the people that have helped them get back to being self sufficient. A family of three that lost everything was able to get into an apartment and because of the donations we were able to supply them with enough funishings to put their lives back on track, and they have committed to pay it forward.
Do Your Part and the children affected by disaster are very grateful that a small part of donations went to give the children a holiday season. Areas supplied with the gift giving were Little Axe and Bethel, Oklahoma. Many gifts were donated for this event along with gift cards supplied for the older children. The children were so thankful and appreciative, we regret not being able to supply pictures for these events during the week of December 16 - 20th, as we did not obtain permission to share.
Do Your Part continues to met the needs of the people of Oklahoma, we cannot thank you enough, thank you.
Replacing Fence
Replacing Fence

Oklahoma and its people are working towards sustainability, and thanks to GlobalGiving, and you, our donors, we are fortunate to be there to assist families, children and individuals. One family of 3, with an infant, lost everything, they managed to get an empty apt; then, with the help of some wonderful businesses in Oklahoma, we were able to provide furniture, a bed, and stock their kitchen, with gift cards they were able to buy clothes. Another family with a number of animals which were part of this families income, were scattered when they lost their fences, and then the mold took over. The family took care of the mold and we supplied the fencing and a number of compassionate volunteers got the fence up, along with helping to rebuild another building on the same property. Again all of these supplies were purchased with the help of GlobalGiving, the donors, and Oklahoma businesses working with us in an effort to assist the people in their community. The above is just a couple of stories, we have also been able to help with much more including temporary housing, food, and clothes. With our partners we assisted in a Christmas in July event for the children affected by the tornadoes. It was a great day!

Do Your Part would like to thank all of our donors for making this and so much more possible. You are the unseen heroes to us and to the many lives that your donations have touched.

Do Your Part would like to thank GlobalGiving and the many wonderful donors that have helped to make it possible for Do Your Part to assist the families in need from the loss of their homes and for many their means of living. Thanks to all of you and our partners we have been able to bring several families closer to sustainability.
Since the onset of the tornadoes that hit Oklahoma, Do Your Part established a Facebook page, this is a place where people could go to get and offer help; the page also offers a resource directory. Since the tornadoes hit Shawnee and Moore on May 19th and 20th, 2013, another devastating tornado hit El Reno, and along with these tornadoes came massive flooding that caused more threats to the survivors of Oklahoma. Do Your Part has aided in the rescue of many horses and have assisted in reconnecting them with their families, we have worked with the veterinarian hospital and clinics to supply much needed medication for these beautiful animals. Do Your Part has purchased, fencing materials, flooring, insulation, along with material for a handicapped ramp and volunteers to install. Currently we are working on a water line project that was destroyed during the storms. We have also supplied Gift Cards for families to get food, gas, clothes, and school supplies. We continue to meet the needs of survivors in Oklahoma.
