Washington, Illinois Tornado Damage

Several Midwestern states were hit hard Sunday by deadly tornadoes and straight line winds. In Washington,Illinois, the death toll stands at 6, and the mayor states that as many as 500 homes were destroyed by the EF4 tornado that touched down there on Sunday afternoon. The need for assistance is great, and will continue for quite some time.

Portlight will be working with shelter operators and disability stakeholder organizations in Illinois and surrounding states, to serve the needs of people with disabilities. We will focus on shelter and transportation accessibility issues, and the provision of durable medical equipment as needed.

As always, your support makes our efforts possible, and we are so very grateful for it.

Thank you for your support and we will keep you updated on our progress

The right thing comes easily when it comes from the Heart. Thank YOU Coca-Cola. Your are, The Real Thing!.

This Major Beverage Company Has Halted Its Advertising. The Reason Why Will Make Your Heart Smile.

You may not be seeing these iconic polar bears quite as much this year. Coca-Cola, the world’s largest beverage company, has decided to temporarily suspend its advertising campaign, and it has a very good reason.

All money that would have been spent on advertising will instead be sent to assist with rebuilding efforts in the Philippines, which is still recovering from Typhoon Haiyan.
