Events To Help Victims of West Explosions & Tornado Relief

I've been collecting a list of events benefiting the relief and rebuilding efforts in West, Texas (listed by location).  I've  decided to also include any benefits to help relief and recovery for victims of the Tornadoes that have ripped through Texas, and our neighbor Oklahoma, and any events in Texas helping the Red Cross (would be happy to add any events benefiting San Antonio flood victims as well...just haven't come across any yet).  Check back as I will continue to update this list.

If you want to donate directly, here's how:

-For places to donate money to West, click here.
-For a List of Needs (items you can help supply), click here.
-For Granbury, you can donate to Mission Granbury  at 817-579-6866.
-Other places to donate to help tornado victims here.
-To help Moore, Oklahoma, more info here and here.

If you know of any other events, please leave a comment and I will add them.

  1. Good to know!! I'm in the process of creating a site with Jennifer from Busy Being Jennifer that will allow people who create handmade items to donate items for online auction to raise money for the victims of West, TX. Hope to get the site up soon. It'll be for all future events too, but the initial reason for the site was to help out West!

    1. Hi Taylor! Jennifer has my e-mail. I'm really looking forward to participating in that.
