All 4 Alabama

Unless you've been living under a rock (and chances are slim, since you're reading this blog), you already know about the tornadoes and flooding that struck the South a few weeks ago. Like a lot of people, being so far away, I didn't really know what to do to help. Do I contribute to Shelterbox? Text REDCROSS to 90999?

Now there is another way. All 4 Alabama is a relief auction that was set up by a friend, writing buddy, and AL resident Crystal. The unique thing about this auction is that all of proceeds are going to help one specific town get back on their feet. The idea is to get relief to towns that aren't getting attention on the news like the larger towns are.

If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, please vist the All 4 Alabama blog to read more. And if you have something you want to donate, please consider offering it to the founders to put up for auction. If you can't donate or afford to bid, the next best thing you can do is spread the word about the auction. After all, the more people who know about it, the better!
