To our dear subscribers: We felt helpless as we learned about the deadly tornado tearing through our home state, 1,500 miles from our adopted home in Brooklyn.  Our social media feeds lit up with panicked friends and family both seeking and acknowledging each other's survival. Fortunately, our loved ones fared well in the storm, but with three native Oklahomans (and University of Oklahoma grads) on the founding CharitySub team, we feel moved to use our resources to help the victims of this devastating storm.
You can't find recognizable pieces of a house. You can't tell the make and model of a car. Think about the energy and the violence that it takes to do that. You can't put your arms around it.
