It is hard to believe it has already been a week since the devastating tornadoes hit the south including our beautiful state, taking many lives and leaving disaster. 

The graphic above is a symbol of compassion for those who have experienced loss.  You all are in my thoughts & prayers.  It has been heartwarming to see everyone come together to help those affected by this tragic storm.  It is just the beginning and there are many needs.

A friend called me on Sunday and informed me of a Jefferson County effort she found through the AIA (American Institute of Architects).  I have included this information below along with additional sources.  There are many more, Hands on Birmingham is a good link to find other opportunities.
