When tragedy strikes, as it did yesterday in Moore, OK, it is hard to understand, grasp or even watch the devastation unfold. “The normally resilient people of Oklahoma are feeling gut-punched at the loss of so many lives, especially those of the little children,” said Melissa Migliore, Director of Operations, e-Commerce Division of Bluefin. Yes, this disaster hits close to home for our Tulsa, OK office. And yes, as human beings, it hits close to home in all of our hearts. So what do we do?
Thankfully, the Internet makes it easy to be proactive with online fundraising. Everyone can go online to a secure pay page, enter their debit or credit card information, and make a donation. It’s fast and easy – and can be implemented immediately. And those in Oklahoma need immediate support. Bluefin has extensive experience in online fundraising – with several hundred companies in these categories currently processing through our payment gateway today. Online donations work to better all, they are secure and they count when it matters most.
Our thoughts and prayers are with our colleagues in OK today, and all of the victims, families, friends and first rescuers affected by this horrible tragedy.
