Please help Joplin, MO, USA

 I am sure that most of you are aware of the devastating tornadoes that ripped through the town of Joplin, MO. One of the deadliest storms to hit in the US in the last 50 years.

Our fellow member, Brent Beshore (Pure/MediaCross), is working tirelessly to try to raise donations to support the recovery efforts for Joplin. This is Brent’s hometown. Many of his friends and family live in this area.

I asked Brent what we could do as an organization to support the people of Joplin. He has set up social media accounts to connect people and services, also donation sites. He has asked that we push out the messages of needed assistance using our own links, followers, pages. Perhaps asking your staff and friends to do the same. The combined outreach of our group will help get the word out to a broader population.

Here are the connections that we can email, tweet, post on Facebook, or send out however you can:
