Todays special show is all about what is happening in LA and how you can help ...This is from my guest I will have on in the morning:

Thousands of families lost everything in the flood waters. They had to be evacuated in boats and leave everything behind. MotherBirth is in a unique position in which we have influence with people who could not sleep knowing a baby would go without food or a clean bottom. So, we started collecting diapers, wipes and formula. It is specific. It is important. And it makes a difference in the lives of moms and babies.It's overwhelming the number of people in need, the number of different needs, and the distance in which this devastation is.  Within a matter of one day, the donations were pouring in and the emergency needs were being reported all over social media. MotherBirth mobilized and began to connect the needs with the help. We've had organizations, churches, businesses and generous individuals partner with us to maximize these efforts. We are merely the conduit for the help to get to those in need that is being provided by our community and others around the country. It is overwhelming, heart breaking and at the same time our hearts swell with pride and gratitude over all of the goodness in this world that is still left. We're honored to be a small part of the help in our community. We pray our efforts make a difference to parents who have found themselved in a tragic situation, and they feels loved and supported by their community. We know we'll never meet them and don't do any of this for recognition.
