There is nothing more frustrating than nervously watching a tragedy unfold before your eyes and feel like there is nothing you can do to help. The hours I have spent the last month reading articles, watching video clips, and following friends on social media who are going through natural disasters is mind blowing.
This nervous energy eats me alive. I want to DO something.
Ironically in Cincinnati, Ohio, we have very few natural disasters. A stray tornado or big snow storm, but nothing like the fires, earthquakes, and hurricanes I 've watched in the last month.
Even so, emergencies in general are a guarantee in life. Someday you will need to have your medical and financial ducks in a row to facilitate your care or the care of a loved one.
This week in the podcast, Betsy shares her Houston Hurricane story, and I share how you can organize your important documents and help the autistic community at the Avondale House School in Houston, Texas.
The Avondale House is a resource for the special needs community in Houston and a school for children with autism.
For the rest of 2017, when you purchase the medical and financial organizers through this link, 100% of the sale will go to the Avondale House School.
The financial and medical organizers are editable PDFs so you can store your information digitally or they can be printed and put in a binder – it's your choice!
These organizers collect all your important information so you don't have to hunt through your filing cabinet or wish you could take the whole thing with you if you have to evacuate. This will really help you in an emergency situation, whatever that situation may be.
100% of the proceeds from sales of my medical and financial planners will go to Avondale House. This is a "win-win" situation as you get these two great organizers AND you get to donate to such a great cause.
If you would prefer to not purchase the planners, but would rather donate directly to Avondale House, you can do so here.
One thing you will never hear me say is, "It 's just stuff." I know better.
Physical items can be replaced, but it does not minimize the pain and inconvenience of doing so. I hope you are reading this in a house with running water, a working sewage system, and electricity
Like I said in the podcast, my own medical and financial organizers were not filled out, but I am doing it now.
I don't want to, and I don 't "have the time," but I know... one day I will be glad I did.
Prayers to everyone in the path of these natural disasters.
