The driver of the truck pulled over to rest on the way to Oklahoma and left the lights on. Battery DEAD! This gentleman saved the day...PEOPLE ARE GOOD! Just like my friends on the Daily Paul. If you are able to donate to the Tornado Relief it would be awesome! Were 30% away from our goal. www.gofundme.com/30o50o
Thanks

THANK YOU DAILY PAUL!
We have raised just over half of our goal. The truck has been rented and filled. Nancy with HOLIA http://handsoflightinaction.org/ is heading south from Michigan with a 26 ft truck full of disaster supplies and a bit of blind faith that everything will come together. If you have considered donating, even if its $5-$10 dollars, every little bit counts. I hope we can meet our goal today and that the next updates I give will be progress reports and photos.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR LOVE! and THANKS to those who have contributed thus far!

Thank you everyone that has generously donated! Please pass my link to your friends if you can http://www.gofundme.com/30o50o

Also, I wanted to share with you some news from the fair ground in Oklahoma. According to my sources I am hearing they estimate to have lost over 3500 head of cattle which are stewn across the area. The Orr family who were calling for resouces have recinded and said they have no animals left and suggested the resources be used elsewhere. There are animals dead embeded in the side of homes. There is a heap of over 400 dead dogs in the center of the track awaiting for tag identification and many more cats. The vets on the ground have gone through over 65 x100 cc vials of euthanizing syrum . It only takes a few cc's to put down a dog from what I understand. They don't have pet food or Vetenarians to help with all the animal carnage.

We have 2 aircraft taking off out of Springfield OH Airport going wheels up right now with 4 Vet doctors and all their gear who have closed the clinic in Urbana OH to rush down to help.

I have critical supplies here in MI we desperatly need to get down to Moore OK! If you can help support this please fund our effort! http://www.gofundme.com/30o50o

I am sorry for the plea and this is not a typical request from me but know that we desperatly need it...

Thank You

I need your help! We have critical supplies in SouthEastern MI. sitting on pallets with no truck. I have taken it upon my self to attempt to raise $3000.00 for the rental of a straight truck, pallet jacks and fuel. The money is directly paid to a 501c3 non profit named Hands of Light in Action. This keeps it clean.

Please, if there is any amount you can donate we would be eternally greatful. This is not my typical approach but frankly we need to get these items down to OK fast!

Jon, can you please embed the donation link? and thank you Michael for giving me the front page for this cause.

WE DONT NEED FEMA TO HELP! We got this!!!!!

Kind Regards

First, I am responding to every lead. Here is what's happening currently. I am working with a retired Red Cross and Military vet out in Urbana OH. He has been in contact with a veterinarian clinic that has decided to shut down, grab all the of their gear, personal, medicine and supplies and relocate to the fair grounds in Moore. People have been gathering horses, dogs, cats, and other livestock and bringing them to the makeshift clinic. With the help of our very own AngieDfromAL, we have an aircraft landing at 10:00 tomorrow morning at the Urbana Airfield. The plane will transport 2 medics, 2 technicians and about 500 pounds of desperately needed medical supplies for animals and in some cases humans. The local news will be covering the story and I will bring you additional details as they come in.....BTW, Please find us a semi!
DEX

**** Update*****
We are still looking for a semi but I want to thank AngieDfromAL here on the Daily Paul. She has provided critical contact information for an association of pilots and planes to us. We are in the process of putting a bird in the air as I write this. It's full of critical medical supplies. Hats off ! You are the Heart of Dixie!

Need a truck! I am following up with all your leads so keep them coming.

I have a staging area near Springfield OH off I-70. I will even take just Power if you have it. We can lease the trailer.

I can also be reached at dexterszyd@gmail.com

much respect for what youre

much respect for what youre doing. advocating liberty comes with the responsibility of being the first one to voluntary or take risk to help or defend others. that is how you beat the state, you make it superfluous.

You are absolutly right!

Once upon a time I did this to promote my business back in the KAtrina days. It took me 15 minutes to rip my logos off the truck when the local girl scouts walked up one by one and dumpped their piggy banks into our fuel jar. Thats when I realized it had nothing to do with me or my business. It had everything to do with the human spirit of people helping people.

It changed my life and has driven me to help anyway I can. My life has changed in terms of responsibilities and I am not as flexible as I once was. But everyone of us possses skills that can help our brothers and sisters.

I happen to have logistics contacts and supply chain skills. Why should I stand by idol? I can help.....but so can you. What can you do? How can you change the course of someones life?

Thanks Bill

Super Market

First off, hats off to you for organizing something like this. I remember a few months ago when Hurricane Sandy hit, our local Stop & Shop donated a truck to send from here in MA to NYC. Volunteers actually filled the first truck ahead of schedule and Stop & Shop stepped up with a second truck to make the same run.

Have you tried reaching out to your local super markets to see if they might be willing to donate a truck and driver for the trip?

Amazing...

I haven't posted in a while, but I was compelled to comment on this post. What a great demonstration of the power of individuals working together in a voluntary way to help other people. Nice job Dex and others who stepped up!

I think we will need those emergency pilots. Have someone that should get us access to land at Tinker AFB if all goes well.

For a friend with a BIG Heart!

2 questions Dex

1. Are you accepting donations from individuals (we always specify no used clothes because we get too many to sort)?

2. Do you need any planes/pilots to help? I have LifeLine pilots willing to help wherever.
