One of the great things about how fast news travels is how quickly people mobilize to help in times of need. There was a huge outpouring of news and support when the tornadoes devastated parts of the south, but just because they’re out of the news cycle doesn’t mean you can’t still help!

Several blogs have banded together to assist families with young kids whose lives have been impacted by the storms. Rather than ask you to donate cash, or schlep down to the post office to mail something, they’re making it super easy with an Amazon Baby Registry. Here’s how Meghann of “Meals and Miles” explains the fundraiser:

How does it work? Simply visit the Baby Registry we have set up on Amazon.com – we have registered for diapers, formula, onesies, etc. The name is registered as “Tuscaloosa Tornado”.

Prices start at just $8.99 so there is something for every budget. Just purchase the item on the registry and it will be shipped directly to the church in Tuscaloosa that can get the items to the people who need it most.

Of course, No baby shower is complete without the opportunity to win a prize. As a little extra incentive to help out, everyone who purchases an item off the registry will be automatically entered to win a $50 HomeGoods gift certificate from The Inspired Housewife or a $25 gift certificate from At The Picket Fence. (Amazon keeps track of everyone who makes a purchase from the registry and we will randomly select the winners from that list).

This is a super cool idea! The registry is full of diapers, formula, onesies, etc. So be sure to head over there and help donate to a family in need, and maybe win something for your generosity!
