"More than half of the country has been affected by this continuous band of damaging weather, disrupting people’s lives from North Dakota to the East Coast.... More than 1,600 people sought refuge in 65 Red Cross shelters Wednesday night as the storms forced them from their homes. Red Cross shelters are open in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Missouri, Indiana, Kentucky, Arkansas, North Carolina and Texas."

Because the April 2011 storm outbreak affected so many areas, we are donating auction proceeds to the Red Cross's general disaster relief fund.
This fundraiser is not officially affiliated with the Red Cross.
