I'm alive....

Sadly, many are not. :(

For those who don't know, I'm in Kansas and last night there was a massive tornado that swept through. The current death toll is 9. Unbelievably, tonight is a replay of last night! There are tornados everywhere tonight too!

I normally don't worry about things too much, but seeing the horrible images on tv all day really hit me hard. This could've been our town just as easily. These small towns struggle to survive as it is, then something like this that completely destroys all the homes and busineses is just devastating.

So, in wondering what I could possibly do to help I decided that all of my profits from this week will be donated to the American Red Cross, with attention to the Kansas tornado victims and families.

If you've wanted to get a new piece of jewelry for yourself or someone else, now is a great time to do it and know that the cause is great as well. I'm open to custom orders again as I finally got caught up.

Stay safe today! I see you have a tornado warning right now according to the weather channel. We have storms but nothing too bad yet.
I remember Altus on May 3rd, 99. Over 100 tornado's that day with TONS of destruction. It's scary and sad, but that's an awesome thing you are doing :)
