I have been really down for almost a week now. I have been feeling a little of all sorts of emotions, feeling of worthlessness, feeling of being lost, confused and down right scared to death. However, I could be having it a lot worse right? I could be like so many in Joplin, MO and the other areas effected by the recent tornadoes that hit our area. I could be wondering where all my family is, or where I am going to sleep. I guess taking all that into consideration I don’t have it that bad.
When devastation hits other countries we always see America giving back, when devastation hits on our own soil, people tend to look the other way. So when companies step up and reach out to those effected it helps me have a bit more faith in them as a company.
I have noticed several companies giving back, and trying to help those effected by the deadliest tornadoes in America’s History! Recently the awesome people over at GourmetGiftBaskets.com put together a huge gift basket of snack items too give to those helping in the clean up and rebuild of this community that has lost so much due to the devastating storms that swept through the area on Monday.
If you are in a position in your life where you are able to give back please do. Every little bit helps even if it is a shoulder to cry on. Below you will find some resources you can go through if you are wanting to also give back. Let’s stand behind our own, and give them all the support they need.
