Remembering Joplin's Tornado Victims

Many groups are organizing fund-raising efforts to help the victims of the horrific tornado last week that hit Joplin, Mo., where the death toll has climbed to 132 people, with scores of others injured, some seriously.

Damage is expected to be in the billions of dollars and clean up and recovery is going to take months. President Obama is scheduled to visit with victims and see the devastation for himself tomorrow.

To make a donation, visit, call 800-733-2767, or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Contributions also may be sent to the American Red Cross, P.O. Box 37243, Washington, D.C. 20013. 

There is more information here and here on how to help.

Many corporations have already begun to help, but more assistance is still needed.
