Bake Sale Held for Local Tornado Relief

  My sister, Jessica Woody with Eco-Friendly Freckles, and I (Andrea Scott with Storybook Artifact) held a local bake sale this last weekend to help raise funds for two families who lost their homes due to an EF2 tornado that recently struck my neighborhood.  It was amazing to see who all came out to support us: such a caring community of people.  We also collected other donations: children's clothing and supplies.  My children even helped us out too; with my son dressed as our little mascot in firefighter costume, and my daughter sampling the cookies.

TulsaWorld Article on Supported Families:

Residents clean up following tornados, severe storms 

  From the home baked treats contributed by caring locals to the generous donations made from those within our community, it has been such a miraculous thing to see so many people who care.  We may not all personally know these families, but their stories do touch us in a way that hits home. ... A goal was really never made, but we did break $1000! To be exact: $1092, which gives $546 to each of the two families whom we were raising funds for. ... Thank you all for the support and we'd like to specially thank: FOX23 News, Tulsa's Channel 8, BA Homeschoolers, members of Destiny Church, Gavco Plastics, Red's Pizzeria, Oneta Wine & Spirits, and Broken Arrow Firefighters.

Great Post Andrea! It was an honor volunteering for this impactful local effort! As Team Captain and Team Leader of the Etsy Recyclers Guild as well as twin sisters and best friends, we make quite a team! We used our upcycling talents in repurposing an old book shelf by painting it blue and transforming it into our bake sale stand. Andrea your handmade "Tornado Relief" sign is adorable and so are my niece and nephew beside it! They're sweet as freshly baked cookies! I'm so happy that we had two local news stations cover our Broken Arrow, Oklahoma Tornado Relief Bake Sale, Fox23 News and Tulsa's Channel 8.
