I started running for President to help the American people and I believe the People’s Plan found on the Issues page will do that…however; today there is a more pressing problem for many people in my home state of Indiana. Today there are many families without homes, many with young children who are living in tents because a mass of tornadoes ripped through Indiana and Kentucky last week. I am asking people to donate items for this effort. We can ask local stores to place boxes for needed items near the door. If you would like to help, please e-mail me here. We also need volunteers in Indiana and Kentucky to help clear debris, hand out food, and supplies, and comfort the children. Here is a list of needed items:
LEATHER GLOVES, SHOVELS, RAKES, THERMOSES, BATTERIES, FLASHLIGHTS, COFFEE POTS, ANTIBIOTIC CREAM, BAND-AIDS, FIRST AID KITS, SOAP, BODY WASH, HAND SANITIZER, DEODORANT, FEMININE PRODUCTS, SHAMPOO, RAZORS, TOOTHBRUSHES, TOOTHPASTE, TOWELS, BABY FORMULA, BABY FOOD, DIAPERS, BOTTLES, TOILET PAPER, STYROFOAM CUPS, CLEANING SUPPLIES, DETERGENT, PLASTIC BINS, BLANKETS, BOTTLED WATER, AND NON-PERISHABLE FOOD.
If you think of it, please include some small toy or book for the children.
These people are living in tents and it snowed the day after. FEMA is doing an assessment right now.
I hope you will help. I will be coming through the neighborhoods in the area I live in and giving you a card. It has this website on it, so you can see this list. Just shoot me an e-mail to let me know that you have a donation for pick-up. We hope to ship the items north this week-end.
Anyone that wants to volunteer to drive for this cause can also e-mail me. They also need handy men to help with covering the openings with tarps. Gougers have already arrived trying to charge people $300-500 to do this. Looters arrived at peoples’ homes just 4 short hours after the tornados hit.
You can donate to the Red Cross by texting, “RedCross” to 90999/ to the Salvation Army by texting, “Hoosier” at 808880 (They are asking for $10 donations, but please give what you can.)
You can also donate gas gift cards or money when donations are picked up. (This will be used to put gas in the voluteers’ cars for the trip up there and back and/or for shipping the items North. Anything left over will go to the victims.)
PLEASE DON’T DONATE ON THIS SITE FOR THE TORNADO VICTIMS- ANY DONATIONS OBTAINED ON THIS SITE MUST, BY LAW, BE USED FOR MY CAMPAIGN SO PLEASE DONATE FOR THE TORNADO VICTIMS IN THE MANNER DESCRIBED ABOVE. THANK YOU!
Please give what you can. Thank you in advance. God Bless!
