2010 March - Angels in Cowboy Boots
AICB was formed in response to the devastating earthquake of 2010. The Twining family started an effort to put food in 5 gallon buckets to distribute in Haiti using extended family, friends and volunteers. In all, close to 20,000 buckets were filled with over 350,000 meals. When buckets weren’t going to Haiti, they were given to other people in need. This included victims of tornadoes in Alabama, flood victims in Pakistan, and victims of the oil well explosion’s off of Louisiana. Other relief efforts were organized for Mexico City earthquake victims as well as substantial relief to the victims of the Fukushima reactor disaster in Japan. These activities cemented hearts of relief volunteerism in the hearts of the Twining’s.
