Here is a list of many sites you can go to on the web to donate towards tornado relief to help the citizens hit so hard just 2 weeks ago.

With April 2011 going down in history as the most active on record for tornadoes, many of the victims are still in major need for even basic necessities. Just look at some of the tweets from ABC 33/40’s James Spann to see all that is needed throughout Alabama’s communities. Donations of not only money, but also clothing, food, and water are still needed. Another important thing to donate is blood. 

Follow the jump for a few great websites with numerous links for fundraising and donating.

Many of these are Red Cross sites covering various states and regions, but also some other sites as well. If you intend to donate, be sure to check the Better Business Bureau beforehand to make sure you are donating to a reputable charity.
