Hundreds of tornadoes have destroyed homes and caused significant damage in several states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee. The tornadoes also hit in cities like Little Rock and Louisville. Millions of people across the Midwest and Southeast are still under threats of severe storms that could lead to more tornadoes.
All donations made to this fund will support relief and recovery efforts in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee, and other impacted states. Initially, the fund will assist first responders in meeting the immediate needs of survivors, such as food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. After completing the initial relief work, this fund will shift its focus towards supporting longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations.

- Provide food and emergency medical supplies to people and animals
