So my family has been weathering Hurricane Harvey in downtown at the Sam Houston Hotel where my husband works. We are very fortunate to have not been affected in the hurricane or the floods that followed, but know so many who have lost everything. We have done what we can while being here, which hasn’t been much. My boys and I went to George R. Brown to volunteer for a few days, but were turned away yesterday since they have SO many and someone toting 2 kids around is not the most desirable volunteer. I get it. So now I’m looking for ways I can help from my hotel room. Here are some of my favorite options, all of these are items you can purchase and 100% of the proceeds are going directly to relief efforts.
I am also working to put together Amazon wish lists for some of the people I know that were affected the most (lost everything), if you know someone please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with their contact information.
