Teachers Love Oklahoma



You know when something horrible happens, how we stayed just glued to the TV. All of the terrible and tragic things our world is faced with breaks my heart. But when I saw those little kiddos being carried out of that rubble...my heart literately broke. I just kept thinking about my family, and how truly blessed I am. Life can throw us all curve balls, and we all have days that we think we just have it so bad. Then, something like this happens. Like what just happened across OK.
My hubby kept saying "Ash, how many people do you think are homeless?"
I really, really do not want to think about those numbers. Or the number of parents that are burying their little guys.
I finally decided, with tears in my eyes, to turn to my friends in the blogging community. Within MINUTES..I had so many people offer to help.
So here we are  offering a fundraiser. This is your chance to give back and receive a tremendous amount of teacher created products.



I will take donations until May 28, 2013!!! 

For a $25.00 Donation, you will receive over $250 worth of teaching products! ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO THE RED CROSS OKLAHOMA CITY!!!

Hug your family a little tighter and be thankful for all the things we are blessed with. I know this is one tragedy I will NEVER forget!!!
