Using Social Media: Joplin Tornado Fundraiser

Living in the midwest for the better part of my life now, the F5 tornado that devastated the small town of Joplin, Missouri hits a little too close to home for me.

When I heard of a small group of bloggers banning together to raise money for this cause, I immediately wanted to help.

I may not be able to do much alone, but together we can make a difference.

I am so thankful for this opportunity I have to use social media for good and join Sippy Cup Mom and others (see below) to raise money for Joplin because every dollar donated can help Joplin rebuild their community.

I am currently offering 3 advertising spots for the month of June for $15 each. The money will go directly to the families of Joplin along with the other donations from other blogs.


If you are interested in advertising on my blog to help raise money for Joplin, please email me at lish@mchsi.com.

If there are more than three parties interested I will make more spots available.

You are also more than welcome to make additional donations. A few dollars might not seem like much, but if we all chip in a few dollars, a little can turn into a lot.


Click on the button above and it will take you directly to Paypal. Mark personal to avoid fees. If you have an issue getting it to work, you can also make donations to bloggersforjoplin@gmail.com.
