Details on Helping Our Fellow Americans in Moore, OK by Adding Your Donation to Lynn and My $1 Million Dollar Challenge Grant

Send online donations to National Christian Foundation (NCF). Here is the link to enable you to help your fellow Americans in Moore, Oklahoma. The NCF team executes all donations and disbursements free of charge. Credit card companies, however, take their cut.

You could also send checks with notation “Friess LeftRight Match” to NCF, 11625 Rainwater Drive, Suite 500, Alpharetta, GA 30009.

The first three channels selected are:

  • Convoy of Hope (had people on the ground 12 hours after the tornado hit);
  • Salvation Army (top guy and his wife received combined salary of $50,000) perhaps the largest relief organization in the world operating in 125 countries; and thirdly,
  • Southern Baptists Disaster Relief (I was very impressed with their behind the scenes efforts I witnessed in the Katrina aftermath).

You may designate your entire donation go to only one effort. We will identify smaller trusted local entities after our arrival in Moore today. I am typing this in flight.

The newly launched LeftRightLeftRightForwardMarch! initiative endorses this effort. The LRLRFM tag line is “Together We'll Get There!”  It pairs Americans of disparate political perspectives to serve others and reduces the culture of divisiveness introduced by recent elections.


The LeftRightLeftRightForwardMarch! initiative just endorsed the Washington, DC, “Step Forward for Orphans March” to promote international adoptions which declined 60% in the last five years. Conservative talk show host, Laura Ingraham, and Democratic US Senator Mary Landrieu, founding co-chair of the 141 member Congressional Coalition on Adoption linked arms to help kids “STUCK” in orphanages to join loving families who are eager to adopt. (The documentary STUCK, at , won two out of three recent film festivals.

Your generosity demonstrates that we as private citizens can solve many of our nations problems as we dedicate ourselves to the ideals and dreams of America that our Founding Fathers  risked so much to give us. We now stand on their and the intervening eight generations' shoulders to maintain the freedoms for which they sacrificed so much.

    Hi there! I am headed to Moore tomorrow with a trailer full of donations for the Humane Society, OKC Animal Shelter, and several church groups down there. My mom has been a Deacon and an Elder at PCJH and she mentioned how involved you have been in relief work. I see in this post that you were enroute to Moore on the 28th, if you will still be this weekend 6/1 – 6/4 I would love to team up with a fellow PCJHer! Thank you!
