First Round Closes June 30th.
jlm121
The first round of bidding will close on June 30th. I want to thank everyone so much for their offers and their bids. I also want to update some of the things that are currently going on in the Midwest. Joplin is beginning the slow process of recovery. Recently many of the survivors and workers have suffered from a severe fungal infection http://articles.latimes.com/2011/jun/11/health/la-he-joplin-fungus-20110611. The work of clearing debris goes on and new building is on hold for 60 days.

Many of you have generously donated to the charities that support the animals who have lost their homes or their owners have no longer been able to take care of them. There has been an ongoing adopt-a-thon to find new homes for those animals.

It's been an extremely rough spring for the Midwest. The summer does not appear to be much better. There is flooding from North Dakota down through Missouri. I want to express my gratitude again to all of you for your concern and your incredible generosity.

Thank you

I want to thank everyone who has so far offered their works and bid on the items. As the week closes current death toll in Joplin stands at 132 people. We are getting a better sense of the tremendous damage done by the tornadoes. I am posting a link to an NPR story where you can see see a before and after aerial view of Joplin.

I really cannot express my gratitude to you all.

Introduction Post
jlm121
This community was started to help the Midwestern United States primarily Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Arkansas that have seen a number of deadly storms. On Sunday, May 21st a tornado hit the city of Joplin, MO causing untold devastation and the storms have not stopped. Today there were touchdowns in the residential areas of Overland Park, KS and Claycomo, MO also an EF2 tornado struck the city of Sedalia, MO.

Missouri is my home and our news is showing repeated images of the devastation. I want to help and I hope you do to. We will take fic offerings, art offerings, or crafts.
