This post is part of my commitment to be a good human in conjunction with Mom Bloggers For Social Good. I received no compensation for this post. Just a whole lot of feel good for spreading the word about an important issue like this.
Tomorrow will mark the 10 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
Ten years ago, over 5,000 children were reported missing from their parents due to the disaster, and it took over 7 months to reunite the last of the children to their families.
One mother, affected by the disaster, who was separated from her toddler now is spreading the word - encouraging all families to have their children #getready and carry emergency contact cards in case of a disaster like this in the future.
Hear this mother's incredible journey here:
Now, don't you think a simple thing like creating an emergency plan and contact cards are a small thing you can do with your family that could make a huge difference in being reunited?
If you are interested in getting started, click on the graphic below to create your own cards and preparedness plan.
It's so much easier to spend some time NOW to prepare for the unexpected, rather than wait until it's too late to take action.
Wouldn't you rather know that you've done all you can to help secure an emergency plan for your family, instead of leaving it up to luck and chance.
I'm going to go create my emergency contact cards now.
Won't you join me?
