It's been almost 10 days now since we first started to feel the affects of the storm here in the Houston area and it's hard to believe that some neighborhoods are still dealing with the flooding. Many of those only a couple of miles from our backyard. I know the national news has covered many stories but the scale of this flooding is so massive. There is just so much water everywhere! I can only image the amount of stress being absorbed by those who's homes flooded, as I'm sure it's both physically and emotionally exhausting. It's such a struggle to watch as there is no immediately solution for those families. Unlike so many, we were very fortunate to be spared any damage to our home and we continue to pray and help as we can.
Despite all the sadness, I've been amazed by all the heartwarming stories I've seen during and after this hurricane. As we are finally starting to get back on track a little after the hurricane, I wanted to share a few ways to support those affected. I know some many of us want to help, so I've found items you can purchase that will help those in need.
1. Skinny Mini Bar Necklace - Love this adorable necklace! And 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Diaper Bank.
2. Come Hell or High Water T-shirt - Paris Texas Apparel shop will donate 100% of the proceeds from this t-shirt to the J.J. Watt Houston Flood Relief Fund.
3. Texas Tough and Still Kickin' Tote - Consider buying one of these cute totes to support our great state. All proceeds going to help those affected by Harvey.
4. Goldenthread - This local shop is offering a couple different necklaces and proceeds from those purchases will be donated to the Harvey relief.
5. Girls Texas Strong Ruffle T-shirt - The Hair Bow Company is donating 100% of the proceeds or this shirt to the Hurricane Harvey Relief, specifically the Houston Bay Area residents.
6. Texas Strong Tea Towel - All benefits of this tea towel will benefit the Bread of Life, a mission in Houston that provides meals and fresh produce for homeless and unemployed folks in transition.
So many great items to purchase that directly support Harvey relief funds. A few of these will not only help Houston, but all of Southeast Texas and the Texas Gulf Coast that were devastated by the storm.
