A ton of athletes like Kevin Durant and Matt Kemp have been showing support and donating to the families affected by the devastating Oklahoma tornado earlier this week, and now the West Virginia University baseball team is getting in on the action!
Head coach Randy Mazey took the Mountaineers to their local Walmart where the boys stuffed their carts with clothes, food, and other supplies for all of the victims in need!
Ch-ch-check out their inspirational shopping spree (above)!
It definitely shows that the players are more than happy to take some time and help out any way they can, especially since a few of them are actually from Oklahoma!
We have to give MAJOR props to West Virginia University for this amazing act of kindness!
So the Weather Channel is understandably pumped about Tornado Week — a week of everything tornados for the channel and their website. We get it, it's like Shark Week but for weather! LOLz!
Well, to celebrate and promote it, some evil genius came up with a fantastic idea: they're recreating a Twitter powered Tornado in their office, claiming the interns were so excited that they HAD to do it… and sat them right in the middle of the wind blasts!
The best part? YOU are in control of the wind! Every public mention of #TornadoWeek on Twitter raises the scale and boosts the winds and you can tweet at the interns by sending messages to @TornadoWeek as they try and survive! If they hit 1,000,000 mentions… well, let's just say that they'll start a full blown EF-5 tornado inside the Weather Channel offices!
BEST IDEA EVER!!
Watch the live feed (above) and go nuts on Twitter to see it all happen in real time!! HA!!
We just recently got the chance to sit down with JWoww, and after having some one on one time with her, we're not surprised by this at all. She is just a compassionate and caring person!
JWoww just hosted a canned food drive for the victims of Hurricane Sandy at her Ab Cuts Sleek & Lean GNC signing in New York City. Not a bad way to combine efforts at all, we say. Business AND charity!
A lot of people had a problem with NYC going ahead with the New York City Marathon even though they had just been devastated by hurricane Sandy. Millions of dollars were going to be going to a race when that money could be going to help those in need.
Luckily, it was canceled, even if at the last second.
Those who were going to run in the marathon are probably good people, many of them having dreamed to run the NYCM. We're not even sure how many were even going to go through with it in the face of what happened.
What we do know, though, is that many of them are now giving back instead by crowd-fundraising money to support Sandy relief efforts — dozens of fundraising campaigns are springing up right now and big bucks are being raised on CrowdRise, the marathon's official fundraising platform co-founded by Edward Norton.
Colin was spotted at the Dolphins/Jets game last night, and we can't help but wonder if he was able to get out of dodge before the storm.
If not, people should first and foremost be safe inside their homes… but if you HAVE to be out and about, keep your eye open for Colin — he might need a place to stay. We mean, he can always stay at our place, but that's regardless of a storm and we're on the wrong coast to help.
We also wonder if he ran into Fergie, and if they both chipped in and got us one of those giant foam fingers!
