HELP FOR TORNADO VICTIMS......................Tornadoes have devastated many communities in Oklahoma. Currently there are two ways to help. One is to pray for those dealing with the pain, loss and mental anguish. Another way to help is by putting together relief supplies-relief kits and cleaning buckets.

If you want to make a donation towards the kits and shipping, the Advance numbers are 531-Material Resource Ministry (901440) and 536-Contain Your Joy (982730), respectively.
You can also help by making online donations to US Disaster Response, Advance #901670 or by calling toll-free 1-800-554-8583. To make an immediate $10 donation text RESPONSE to 80888.

While it may not feel like it outside, summer is just around the corner, and that means barbeque season! We would like to suggest hosting a barbeque-themed event to raise funds for Imagine No Malaria. The Great Plains Area communications team has put together a "toolkit" to help you with planning such an event -- everything from a sample press release and best practices tip sheet, to a T-shirt order form and instructions on how to make PipeCleaner mosquitoes (a fun activity for kids!).
IMAGINE NO MALARIA BBQ TOOLKIT
Also are available are some neon orange Imagine No Malaria fly swatters. These are free, but there are a limited number available; email Trish Johnson at email@example.com if you would like some for your event.
Everything you need can be found at http://shootfornomalaria.net/resources.
Questions? Contact Trish at firstname.lastname@example.org.
