Mercury One, a nonprofit charity organized and run by Glenn Beck, has already raised over $1 million dollars for Oklahoma tornado relief. Its Convoy of Hope, in partnership with Operation Blessing, had two trailer trucks of supplies on the road to Oklahoma the night of the tornado. LifeNews has the story here.
From Mercury One’s Facebook page:
________________Mercury One is tremendously thankful to all those who donated to help the families in Moore, Oklahoma after the horrendous tornado ripped through their lives. Together you have raised well over $1 million! Mercury One hit the road the same night as the disaster and arrived at First Baptist Church in Moore, early the following morning with two tractor trailers full of supplies from Operation Blessi…ng, some power generators, and gasoline. The people of Moore are incredibly strong, by the time we arrived most had been up all night, and continued to work all day. Even amidst tragedy they still could muster a smile and a laugh. Everyone was energetic, no one complained about the exhaustion, no one even sighed loudly, they all just kept on keepin’ on. The First Baptist Church of Moore is set up like a fortress of good. Throughout the day people continued to stop by to drop off more supplies. The church took in families that lost their homes. The scene was the epitome of brotherly love and open hearts. Our efforts are far from done, but together we’ve made tremendous headwind. You can continue to make the difference in so many lives!
