Devastating events like Hurricane Harvey remind us of the fragility of all things. The greater Houston region has suffered unimaginable losses of life and property and are in dire need of assistance. As in the earthquake that struck Nepal in 2015 and the tsunami that devastated Japan in 2011, we are asking the MVE team, friends, family, and community to join us in an effort to raise funds to assist those affected by this disaster. Here is how we plan on helping:
MVE + Partners is raising funds for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Hundreds of thousands of families have been displaced and the event is on course to be the most costly natural disaster in the history of our nation. To aid those in need, MVE is hosting a raffle fundraiser where we are inviting employees and friends to purchase tickets for the chance to win some great prizes. Our goal is to raise $2,000 office-wide. Upon reaching our fundraising goal, MVE has pledged to match employee donations. All proceeds of MVE's Harvey Relief Fundraiser will be donated to All Hands Volunteers, where 100% of the funds will be put towards services and programs aimed at rebuilding Houston. Visit www.hands.org to learn more about this amazing non-profit organization.
Here is how you can help:
1) PURCHASE RAFFLE TICKETS: 1 for $10 or 3 for $25. Make your donation on Crowdrise and see Nancy Su to claim your raffle tickets. We will also be walking around the office each day to sell tickets so there will be plenty of opportunity to purchase!
2) SPREAD THE WORD: This fundraiser is open to friends, family, and acquaintances. Please feel free to forward them MVE's Harvey Fundraiser Crowdrise link or purchase raffle tickets on their behalf. You do not need to be present to win!
Raffle tickets will be on sale from September 6 through September 15.
