Another Reason to Coupon

I'm a little apprehensive in writing this, because I'm afraid my motives may be questioned or misunderstood. But I still think it is worth sharing.

----------

Yesterday, May 20, 2013, the town of Moore, Oklahoma was hit by an EF5 tornado. Twenty-four deaths have been reported. Seven were children. Entire neighborhoods were destroyed. 

Moore was my home for my college years. It is where my church is. I have many friends whose homes were damaged, but Thank Jesus, none have been reported missing, injured, or dead. I have yet to visit the city of Moore because the state has asked people to stay away unless their home is there, or was. 

Today, my previous church opened its doors to take donations. 

I was able to pull from my coupon stockpile and donate various toiletries. 


Shampoo
Conditioner
Body Wash
Deodorant
Toothbrushes
Toothpaste
Shaving Cream
Kleenex
Mouthwash
Handsoap
Pads
Liners
Tampons
Feminine Wipes
Diapers
Hand Sanitizer (not pictured)
Toilet Paper (not pictured)
Paper Towels (not pictured)
Pocket Sized Kleenex (not pictured)

A few of the items were not couponed, such as the diapers, which were originally intended as gifts for Noah, Jonah, and Leah but were accidentally left behind, but I know they are happy to help. 

Almost all of the other items were bought with coupons and without that, we wouldn't be able to donate as much. 

More is needed. Please give what you can, wherever you can. 

Most of all, please pray for Oklahoma.
