It’s a devastatingly horrific scene anytime you turn on the news or check the news online. Houston Texas and surrounding cities, most recently Port Arthur, are under water and the catastrophic Hurricane Harvey seems to still be wreaking havoc to anything and anyone in it’s path. And with rescue efforts in full force, round the clock, there is no shortage of organizations posting links to their sites to encourage people to volunteer, donate and organize food and clothing drives in their local communities. But which one is the best or most effective to actually help the families, animals included, in Texas? I have spent the better part of the afternoon looking up several articles and organizations and have found some great sites. But this one article is on point. Here are the best ways to help Texas recover from Hurricane Harvey!
While scrolling on Insta, I came across a post on @AmyPoehlersmartgirls. This pic below broke my heart and also made me so happy that people are making sure to take great care of their fur babies. The link in her bio points to an article from the Houston Chronicle and lists a ton of local Houston organizations that you can donate to, no matter what part of the world you are located in! There are joint efforts being made by several celebrities and SO many of the posts are pointing to this article because of how much awesome information it contains. There is no way you can’t find some small or big way to help out guys and gals, even if all you can donate is $5- ANYTHING HELPS! I loved this post so much that I reposted it to my instagram page & pasted the link to the article in my bio.
You can also take it from Chiquita Bonita aka @mividachola. She found another site called Team Rubicon which is also a great organization that is helping to #giveback to the people of Texas. Check out her video asking for your help below!
The point is to help and give back, regardless of the way you choose to do it. Just PLEASE do it!
Please comment below with any organizations you think are awesome and deserve some notoriety!
WE LOVE YOU TEXAS, WE ARE SENDING YOU OUR LOVE AND PRAYERS- PLEASE STAY SAFE & STAY STRONG EVERY ONE- YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
