Prayers for Tuscaloosa, Birmingham and the Southeast

Happy Thursday, everyone. I had a different post planned today - actually, a giveaway and discount from a new designer. However, due to the events of yesterday's storms throughout our great state and the entire Southeast, I'm rescheduling the fun for Friday.

Today I want to say that my thoughts and prayers are with my family, friends and readers in Tuscaloosa and Birmingham. As well as other cities, towns, and rural areas in the Southeast.

Tuscaloosa is absolutely devastated. I was able to get in touch with several friends in the area, and thankfully so far, everyone is ok. The pictures are scary. They remind me of the devastation the Gulf Coast experienced during Hurricanes Ivan and Katrina - and those are not fun memories to revisit. 

Please take a moment today to say a prayer, light a candle, whatever it is that you personally do - that people are safe, out of harm's way and have food, clothing and shelter. Once I've obtained more information about credible sites or organizations that are accepting donations to assist our neighbors in these lovely communities, I will share with you. 

If you're reading and your sorority, fraternity, or organization is putting something together, please let me know: lori.driver@hotmail.com.

P.S. Yes, I understand there is a Royal Wedding this week. However for me - this is just more important to blog. Additionally, don't forget to check in on Friday for a gorgeous and generous giveaway from a new, lovely jewelry designer!

  1. I really hope the media gives this some attention and takes some away from the royal wedding...
