Tornado swarm devastates South
Bringing Hope and Love to Tuscaloosa
The relief efforts in Alabama have just begun. Food, water, clothes and basic supplies are making their way into Tuscaloosa and other affected areas each day. And while they can still use more of all of these things, sometimes the intangible needs are often overlooked, mainly because it’s hard to package a hug and send it across the country.
Forsaken Generation is helping with relief efforts in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and by far one of the biggest needs we are seeing, is just a kind, encouraging word for those who are affected. Thousands have lost their homes and belongings. Many have lost loved ones in an instant, rocking them to their core. While food, shelter and clothing is absolutely necessary, sometimes just knowing that someone is there for them and thinking about them can help more than any basic necessity can.
So we’re asking people all over the country to pour some love out on the people of Alabama. And Forsaken Generation will help deliver that Note of Love and that “virtual hug” if you will. We’ll be taking everyone’s comments from forsakengeneration.com/helpforalabama/notesoflove and will be printing them out and hand delivering these notes of encouragement, love and hope to affected families. We want them to know that there are people all over thinking about them, praying for them and sending whatever help they can, even if it’s just in the form of an encouraging word.
Please help us spread the word. Tweet, blog, facebook – even send a video. The more encouraging notes we can send the more hope we’re infusing into these hardest hit areas.
