We want to help with the search for toys lost during the monster tornado outbreaks of April 27, 2011!!
We are lifelong Alabamians, and our hearts ache for all those in our state who were not as fortunate as we were. Twice the weather radio warned that tornadoes were headed straight toward our little town, and both times they lifted as they approached us. We praise God for his Mercy toward us. Other nearby communities were not so fortunate and had deaths and widespread destruction.
Alabamians are helping each other during this time of great need, as whole cities and towns have been demolished. Collection points are all over the place for people to bring bottled water, food, charcoal and grills, toiletries, diapers, formula, and other basic necessities. There are too many organizations collecting relief donations to name them all, but since we’re Baptist, here’s the link to donate through the State Mission Board. The Salvation Army and many other charitable organizations are also busy helping with relief efforts across the South.
The time to help with clothing, furniture, and toys has not come yet, but it will soon, when life saving needs are met. When that time comes, these surviving families are going to want to replace the special lovies that will help their little ones feel secure again.
We have over 150 Fabulous Finders who help with the search for lovies, so PLEASE PASS THE WORD ALONG TO ANYONE WHO HAS FAMILY OR FRIENDS IN AN AREA STRUCK BY WEDNESDAY’S TORNADOES – WE WILL MAKE YOUR SEARCH A TOP PRIORITY!!!
As our own small way of helping, if we have the lovie in stock in our Dirty Butter Plush Animal Shoppe, we’re offering a 50% OFF Discount to all orders shipped to an Alabama address through June 30th. We encourage other Plush Toys Sellers to do what they can to help as well. We CAN make the difference in these children’s sense of stability and security in such a chaotic time in their young lives.
One of our Fabulous Finders, who is an online Toy Seller, suggests that most sellers will offer help to Alabama Tornado victims. All the family needs to do for a discount is ask. She says she will take most offers on items to those affected by a disaster. The willing will help. Families just need to know the price may appear high on eBay or some other online auction site or store, but their request for a reduced price may still be accepted.
Thanks so much all your help,
If we can help you find a lost lovie, THIS SEARCH REQUEST IS NO LONGER ACTIVELY MANAGED. Please use Our FREE FACEBOOK GROUP,
