As some of you may know, Ms. Primetime and I are on vacation in Florida for the week so I've felt oddly disconnected to what's going on back in our home state of Missouri. The tornado situation in Joplin, Mo. is so devastating that it's hard for me to even wrap my head around.
I was glad to learn this evening that the Kansas City Chiefs are donating $35,000 to the relief efforts. Chiefs nation spreads far beyond Kansas City and the organization is doing their part for this unbelievable situation.
"The Chiefs Kingdom has been greatly affected by the tornadoes in Joplin and Reading. Our hearts and prayers go out to the people affected by these disasters," Chiefs President Mark Donovan said in a statement released by the team on Monday evening. "We were informed that bottled water is the most pressing need at this point. Our hope is that our efforts will assist in meeting the immediate needs of those impacted. Our entire organization stands ready to help in the days and months ahead."
