Rarely, if Ever.......

do I get so moved by something I see on TV that I will respond with a check, but today I did.    Please watch this video.

Stephanie Decker is a woman who protected her children when the recent tornadoes in Indiana raged through and took her house. She lay atop her children, whom she had wrapped in a comforter, and saved them from any harm, but lost her legs in the process, as well as her home and most of their belongings. 

She and her family will need a lot of money to cover the expenses of her surgeries, recovery time, physical therapy and prosthetic devises. Please find it in your heart to contribute, if at all possible. 

A fund has been set up for her here:

Stephanie Decker
c/o Fifth Third Bank
392 S. Indiana Avenue
Sellersburg, IN  47172

I read this story, what a brave Mother. The story that is breaking my heart is the whole family who were killed. The toddler found it the field. We haven't given yet, so many sad stories. I like to give to personal funds like this.

They hit here in Ohio, too. I donated to the efforts here.

And we always thought a basement was a safe haven in a tornado. What a heroic mother!
