Every year tragedies occur, and whether or not we are ready for, they still manage to destroy many homes and kill many people. Earlier this week the city of Moore Oklahoma was hit by an EF-5 tornado which just happens to be the largest and fastest kind. There have only been 59 registered EF-5’s in the nation’s history and the second in Moore, OK in a 14-year span.
Rams QB Sam Bradford is obviously from Oklahoma, and was in Oklahoma at the time of the tornado. Bradford joined Switch Contemporary, the American Red Cross and a variety of other partners to create #STL4OKC, donation drive to support the people affected by the storm.We at Ramblin’ Fan encourage you to donate if you can, or at least send your thoughts and prayers to the victims of this tragedy. The tornado created $2 billion or more in damage as it tore through as many as 13,000 homes belonging to 33,000 people, multiple schools and a hospital. It is said that 24 were killed including 10 children.
The Red Cross is looking for donations that include baby items such as diapers and wipes, personal needs like bathroom tissue, first aid supplies and sunscreen, cleaning supplies such as bleach or paper towels, building and packing materials like hammers, screw drivers, duct tape and heavy garbage bags, pet supplies like food and kitty litter, cloths and shoes for children, non-perishable food, blankets, bottled water, batteries and candles. Cash donations are also extremely helpful and can be made by visiting www.redcross.org, calling 1-800-REDCROSS or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Cash donations go to provide food, shelter and emotional support to residents of affected areas.
