Tornado Relief





For those who are wanting to help with the Tornado Relief that devatstated Alabama, here are a few things that you might be interested in: 


1. Gift Card Donations

Many of you are asking, “How do we help those affected by the recent tornadoes across the Southeast?” We’d like to make helping simple while leaning into the principle that providing financial resources is a great first response to an emergency.
We’ve learned that it’s incredibly helpful to equip families with immediate resources so they can begin to rebuild their lives, along with their homes. Distributing resources through churches or ministries in the areas most affected allows local churches to love on and support their communities in times of great need. So, that’s exactly what we’re going to do: equip local churches to help those in their communities recover.
If you want to join with Buckhead Church in a relief effort, here’s the plan: 

1. Swing by HOME DEPOT, LOWES, TARGET, or WALMART and pick up some gift cards.
2. Please write the amounts of the cards in black ink directly on the card.
3. Bring them by the church, drop them in the mail to us (Buckhead Church, 3336 Peachtree Road NE, Atlanta, GA 30326), or put them in the offering buckets the next two Sundays (5/8 and 5/15).



2. Helping a Southern Heirloom Bride




Tragedy hit home. Helping our Southern Heirloom Bride.



This morning I received an email I had prayed I would not receive. One of our clients was in the path of the Tuscaloosa Tornado. Please watch:


The images in the video are real, and they are 1st hand images from what is left of her home.  Her wedding jewelery, to her red wedding boots, to the ladies handkerchiefs and doilies she had been collecting were all taken away with the Tuscaloosa Tornado.
First, if you can, please donate to the American Red Cross.  There are so many thousands of people who need shelter, support, and food.  Secondly, if you have the ability to help us to create Martha's Southern Heirloom wedding and be some light in the midst of this tragedy, we would love to have your help.  I know how amazingly generous the wedding industry is, and this is hopefully a way we can all reach out and make one brides wedding wonderful despite the devastation.
Here are the "southern" items we are looking to gather and/or replace for her summer wedding:

Mason Jars
Vintage Handkerchiefs
Cotton
Tin or Galvanized Buckets
Burlap
Dried Hydrangea
Watering Cans
Parasols
Lanterns (Metal, Glass & Paper)
Wooden Wedding Signs
Cloth Doilies

Cast Iron Skillets
Small Iron Buckets
Clothespins
Woven Baskets
Lace Panels & Antique Linens
Water Jars
Hay Stacks

Items can be sent to:

Please be sure to include your name and return address so that we can offer a proper southern thank you.
