Helping Central Illinois

I totally had a post prepared about teaching a math concept, but I decided to post about helping out those in need instead.  On Sunday, November 17th, a tornado swept through central Illinois.  The town of Washington was hit the worst.  Many people lost their homes and all of their personal belongings.  I grew up right outside of Peoria very close to where this devastation occurred.  It really hit home seeing all the news footage of this tragedy.  

I would love to put together a bundle of products that people can purchase.  Their money would go straight to the Red Cross to help the victims of these storms.  I have never done this before so anyone who would be willing to donate, please email me (  Also anyone who has ever done something like this where you are taking monetary donations, if you could help me figure out the logistics I would greatly appreciate it!

I hope to have this ready to go by the end of the week or over the weekend at the latest.  Keep praying for all these people.


  1. Love this idea! I haven't put one together before, but I would totally donate something! :)
