We need your help!

Thank you so much for visiting our website/blog. We appreciate you taking the time out of your day to help us.

Following the devastation in Tuscaloosa, a group of University of Kansas Atmospheric Science students and the KU chapter of the American Meteorology decided that we couldn’t sit by and just watch the news coverage. We needed to act.

We all love the weather and we love chasing tornadoes, but watching the devestation in Tuscaloosa made us feel helpless. Much like the residents who have lost everything.

This group of students will now be on their way to Tuscaloosa on Monday, May 22. Working with the organization, Samaritan’s Purse, we will work side-by-side with our Crimson brothers and sisters to help the Tide roll again.

But, we need your help to get down there. Please, if you can, donate to our cause and help us get to Tuscaloosa. You can use our Paypal account, drop donations off on Wescoe Beach or at 405 Lindley Hall, or send us snail mail:

Rock Chalk & Roll Tide
c/o Adam Smith
3100 Ousdahl Road #715
Lawrence, KS 66045

Please make checks payable to KU American Meteorological Society.
Please keep in mind that we also need supplies, like:

  • Gloves
  • Masks
  • Eye Protection
  • Hard Hats
  • Chainsaws
  • Toiletries
  • Food and Water

We will also be taking supplies to the local Red Cross for the residents of Tuscaloosa, like:

  • Clothes
  • Shoes
  • Food and Water
  • Bedding
  • Toiletries
  • Anything that you use in everyday life, these people have lost.

Thank you so much for your help.

Rock Chalk…Roll Tide

    Hello, I just donated some money for this cause via PayPal. I think this is a great thing you are doing and I am so happy to help out.

    I would like to make a suggestion, if I may? Today I saw one of your table set up outside of Hy-Vee, on 6th St. and would like to have given you cash, but you did not have any receipts to give out, which is why I just donated via PayPal. It may be helpful, in the future, if you could write out receipts for cash or food donations you are asking for.

    Thank you and good luck down south.
