Help our Western Massachusetts Neighbors

This morning I was reading my friend Alicia’s blog, The Clean Plate Club, and learned she would be donating her June Foodbuzz funds to the American Red Cross of Central and Western Massachusetts to help with the aid that is needed in the wake of Wednesday’s horrifying tornadoes.

Alicia’s family was one of the first I thought about when I heard the storm would be hitting the Springfield/Wilbraham areas hard, and I was grateful to hear that they were all okay.

Unfortunately, so many others were not so lucky. Four lives were lost, hundreds were injured, and there was extensive property damage. As I commented on Alicia’s blog, it is horrible when something like this happens anywhere, but when it happens so close to home, it really hits you.

So I am joining her! All of my Foodbuzz funds from the month of June will go to the Red Cross, and you can help! Just visit my blog and stop by Alicia’s when you get a chance.

Thanks, and have a wonderful, safe weekend!
