Having witnessed the catastrophic hurricane destruction over the past weeks, we’re sure you agree that this gives us all pause as human beings sharing the same planet. Harvey brought massive flooding, Irma deadly storm surges, and Maria catastrophic high winds. The loss of human and animal life has been tragic, and the damage to property and infrastructure goes into the billions. It will take years for many areas to even come anywhere near what they were before.
As of today (October 5, 2017), many people in Houston are still waiting in lines for food assistance following Hurricane Harvey and thousands are without homes. Florida also has a long road to recovery with significant damage to crops and infrastructure after Hurricane Irma. In Puerto Rico, hit by both Irma Hurricane Maria, the devastation is beyond belief, with countless people not only having lost everything, but still struggling to find basic necessities like medical care and water.
Many of us have family and friends in these affected areas, and many more have fellow Community members that we’ve gotten to know and love on Facebook who are suffering through this devastation. While we can’t stop these natural disasters, we CAN send them our love and a helping hand in the form of relief funds at their hour of greatest need.
This is a time to grow together even if we’re miles apart. Please lend a helping hand with your kind donations - we’re all brothers and sisters on this planet in the end, so let’s open our hearts like the amazing Community we know you are. The people and animals of Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico will be extremely grateful for any assistance you can offer.
We want to make sure that your kind donations are put to the best use instead of getting lost in some administration hole. The charities we’ve chosen are making a powerful impact in helping those suffering from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, Irma and Maria.
We’re extremely grateful for any help you can offer. Love to all.
