Unfortunately this tragic situation has been swept under a rug and a lot of people have forgotten about it, except for the survivors of the horrific tornado that tore the small town of Joplin.
A group of authors have created a digital anthology of essays called Writing Off Script: Writers on The Influence of Cinema. All of the proceeds will go to the Joplin Schools Tornado Relief Fund. The fund will allow 160 students to get educated on the fundamentals of film production and broadcasting. 54% of Joplin’s students that lived in the area was affected by the tornado. 8 schools were destroyed or damaged in that 2011 catasrophe. Now that is what I call neighbors coming together and lifting people up.
Peace and luv!
