Central Illinois Tornado Victim Fundraiser
As I was sweeping up glass from a table which was shattered last Sunday in the storm I just kept thinking this is such small potatoes in comparison to what my neighboring communities are cleaning up.  It also confirmed how important it is to reach out and help these communities.  Usually tornadoes are spring and summer events, not fall.  So many lost their homes and everything they own and with winter fast approaching offering very little time to recover.  
I felt an overwhelming need to help in some way and decided to contact TPT to see if there was any way they would help sponsor or support a fundraiser for these victims.  They have been wonderful helping me get everything set up and along the way I met two wonderful ladies who had the same thought as I did.  We have teamed up together and beginning December 1st will be offering to you a fantastic opportunity to help as well.  There will be several different bundles of products offered to you for a cost, but in return you will receive some wonderful products donated by many teachers and clipart artists on TPT.  Later this week I will post on my Facebook page, as well as here the store address.  I hope you will come check out our TPT store where these fabulous bundles will be offered for the month of December. 
A special thanks Amanda Pauley, Cindy Feeney who have worked with me on gathering donations and getting the fundraiser organized.  And, I can't thank all of you who have donated enough!!  Your generosity has touched me deeply and I know the victims of the tornadoes of Central Illinois will be thankful for any help we can offer. 
More news to come soon!!
