Tornado Fund

As I’m sure most of you know by now, our Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund is ending in ONE HOUR.  If you haven’t yet contributed, now is your last chance!  As of this morning, 2,255,335 Swag Bucks have been donated, converting to a $20,674 contribution.  Help us aid the relief efforts and piece back together the lives of thousands.

After our Japan fund comes to an end, we are opening the Tornado Relief Fund, turning our attentions a bit closer to home.  During the 24-hour period from 8 am April 27 to 8 am April 28, The National Weather Service estimates there were a total of 266 tornadoes causing over 340 deaths and countless miles of destruction in the Southern US.  One of the hardest hit areas was Tuscaloosa, AL. Estimates indicated that the tornado that hit Tuscaloosa could have been on the ground for 176 miles, with winds between 167 and 200 mph.

We are now reaching out to you in the hopes that you’ll consider donating your Swag Bucks to help those affected.  We have chosen to support the United Way of Western Alabama who have committed 100% of donations to go directly to local tornado relief.  Start donating today at 12pm PDT with as little as 5 Swag Bucks – every buck counts!  The deadline for donations is Tuesday May 31st at 12:00pm PDT.

Thank You.
