Three Neat Ways to Help Arkansas Tornado Victims (Plus 9 Photos from Mayflower)

For a list of donation ideas, go here. To know where to take it, go here.

As relief efforts continue, I’ve come across three really neat ways to help Arkansas tornado victims. I know many of you have worked all week and have made plans to volunteer this weekend in disaster areas, so I thought I’d share these ideas with you.

Five Gallon Bucket Ice Chests. I saw I guy from my church do this on Tuesday – such a brilliant idea. Cold drinks are few and far between, so this idea gives them a nice cold Gatorade (which they prefer over water) and a bucket they can use after they are finished with the drinks.

Also, after spending a day in the office on Wednesday, I was back out today. Here’s a few photos from Mayflower:
