Yes, the deadline is just before the next meeting, since the meeting is being moved due to the 4th of July. The official deadline is July 4th, 2011 so make sure that your donations are in by then!

Can we still donate clothes and things? I see that there was a clothing drive recently that I missed. I would like to donate some to the Joplin area along with my points.

If you check out the blog there's other ways you can help as well. You can call or email any of the donation centers in the area and see if they can use other things and what you can send.

If you end up with any clothing you don't send to Joplin, you can also still donate to one of your local centers. Our clothing drive isn't over, and there's no wrong time of year to donate clothing to those in need

To be clear - are the points only worth half of their value? Or is that the giftcards? I don't recall which it is. Either way I'm going to save up more before I donate, but this is a great cause. Awesome job, Bunny

Gary had explained this at a different meeting, but basically, for the first fundraiser we broke it down to exact costs of point usage and matched that. As that was a little confusing to explain over and over, we have since then been honoring points at full dollar value. In this way, EF gives the same, its easier to explain, and in conversation it ultimately gives the community all the credit!

Thank you so much for doing this. I live about 40 minutes from Joplin. The destruction is unbelievable, photos cannot even capture it. The townspeople still need so much and every little bit helps. It is so great to see Eden do this!

Awesome! I frequently donate around my area so I was hoping I could send some that way. Is there a thread to the clothing drive you speak of? I think I saw it before but I am half awake right now, I'd really like to participate in an Eden drive (it's been a while since I have been able to help out around here).

I really should go to bed now, I have to be up in like 4 hours...

Here's a link to the clothing drive, but it's really just about you sharing in general. So you'd donate in your own area and then send us pictures and a story

Hi Everyone! I just wanted to keep encouraging you guys to earn points and donate them for a good cause. As a community we can make a difference in the lives of others and also inspire others to do so. Here are some encouraging words to keep you motivated :

This is just one neighborhood that was affected by the tornado. I don't know what I'd do if my house was one of those that was demolished.

I don't know what I would do either. I can't even imagine what it would be like trying to find a loved one under what used to be my house.

Now an aggressive rare fungal infection is appearing in victims of the tornado. They really need the help and resources, so please send your donation to Gary!

This is a wonderful idea! I will be more than happy to donate some of my points. This is especially close to home since I'm from MO, and living through the hectic weather was terrifying. It's scary knowing that many of your friends had friends and family live through something like that.

@happyhomeschoolingmom : What? OMG, that's horrible! I hadn't heard about that!
