Yesterday, June 1, 2011, we had some severe weather that passed through Massachusetts.
The storms have now passed, and luckily we didn't get hit too hard out here in the Boston area...however, the area where I grew up in and spent over 22 years of my life, the Springfield and Western Massachusetts area got severely hit by at least 3 tornadoes. This is something extremely unusual for the New England area, so we weren't prepared for this type of severe storms and devastation.
I will be looking into possible volunteer opportunities... but currently the local Red Cross is gladly accepting monetary donations to help those who have been affected by the storms; several homes were leveled, things completely destroyed.
Here at MaJenta Designs we want to do whatever we can to help out. We will be donating 100% of ALL our proceeds from our sales from now until June 15th.
Thanks so much for supporting our relief efforts!
