project Storm Relief      


“In the Midst of chaos, finding relief after the storm”

In 2005 Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans,

and surrounding coastal cities...the impact

was unquestionably one of the deadliest

in the history of the united States.  Jeff and

Kathryn Piotrowski are not strangers to devastation, having experienced the traumatic aftermaths of countless tornado events in their stormchasing careers.  Always wanting to make a difference, finding a way to help, Kathryn Piotrowski brought to life “ProJect Storm Relief” and designed a calendar in a matter of a couple of months to help raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.  Thank you to everyone for purchasing the calendar and changing the lives of many. 

Project Storm Relief is  not a 501C entity and donations are not tax deductible.  Project Storm Relief raises money via cafepress through the purchasing of storm chasing gear designed by Kathryn Piotrowski.  100% of the proceeds of the sales go directly to Project Storm relief.  Your purchases  of our stormchaser t-shirts fund the purchase of new toys, blankets and also help with other needs encountered by victims of storm damage...for instance the rural community of Franklin, Kansas needed a storm siren and we helped them in achieving that effort, WE DONATED TOYS TO THE TORNADO RAVAGED COMMUNITY OF GREENSBURG, KS , and donated to Oprah’s Katrina Project for the Angel Network,  to Global Green (Providing “Green” rebuilding for Persons affected by Hurricane Katrina and the American Red Cross.  Again, THANK YOU for participating in Project Storm Relief.


The Funds Raised for Hurricane Katrina Donations were made to

Oprah’s Angel Network

Global Green

The American Red cross

we offer fun stormchasing t-shirts and outer wear for the entire family.  Your purchase will change the life of someone impacted by a severe weather event...and hopefully GIVE SOME PEACE IN KNOWING THEY ARE NOT ALONE IN THEIR JOURNEY TO RESTORING THEIR LIVES.

Hurricane Katrina...fueled the dream to give is my fondest accomplishment, the production of the 2006 Tornadoes Calendar to benefit causes after Hurricane Katrina.  Now in 2011 and 2012, the limited edition DVD “Storm Chasing the Joplin EF-5” was a labor of love in the production and editing of this emotional DVD.   Thank you to the many individuals who have purchased T-Shirts, Prints, Magnets and Bumper Stickers through our TwisterChasers Store on CafePress.  Over the years I have used the money from these sales to purchase new toys and giving them to the Command posts or shelters set up after devastating Storm Events such as Greensburg, KS (EF-5) and Yazoo, MS (EF-4).  Of recent the YMCA was a shelter to many after the Joplin EF-5 and I took several containers of new toys...I had the toys with me in the back of our Avalanche the day of the Joplin Tornado...and ironically some new “Hot Pink Fleece Childs Blankets”  even though I didn’t have anywhere to leave the toys that very night...the Blankets were a God Send...right after the tornado struck and we headed down Iowa Street...I began issuing the blankets to those persons who were injured.  One memorable moment was a person waving one of those blankets as a helicopter hovered over.   Project Storm Relief is a Not for Profit Corporation and receives funding through the sales of products offered on and through the sales of the Joplin DVD, 10% of the proceeds from the sale of the Joplin DVD are currently being distributed to local Joplin Charities for the sole benefit of those affected by the Joplin tornado.  Our initial release of the Joplin DVD garnered funding for Mark Lindquist  Read his story here and here.

Also 100% of the proceeds from the sale of autographed posters of the Joplin Tornado will go to these needs.  We want to Thank Everyone for their continued support of Project Storm Relief...TwisterChasers.Com, Inc....and CafePress/tornados...we couldn’t do it without you!
