Press Release Issued Regarding Blizzard

Jeri Baker issued a press release regarding the desperate situation resulting from last week's blizzard. To quote a portion of the release, "One Spirit has been trying to gain the attention of other emergency service organizations. The Red Cross brought supplies over the weekend, but due to incomplete and/or faulty information, these supplies did reach many of the hardest hit areas. Today they are returning with blankets, water, food, kerosene lamps, candles, and other items. But their supplies are limited, and are still unable to meet the current needs."

We all want to do everything we can to help the situation, as well as helping out in any future situations. But we're not all able to give loads of money, or we're not close enough to give our time in person. We also may not have the supplies to give. So if we can just talk to anyone who will listen, be it local government, media outlets, or just the folks that we have coffee with, maybe that will help spread awareness about the people who really need help within our country. If you have any suggestions on how to accomplish this, please post them on the blog so that others may be given ideas that they didn't have before.
