My name is Nick and I am starting this fundraiser for my Dad. There would be no way he would do something like this but I know he needs help this time. Last time he did it alone and it took away a lot of his money.
Last year, my Dad went through the storm in Houston, which the news called, The Tax Day Flood. His whole property became flooded and he lost a lot. Most of the little things, his insurance company covered but there was so much more they wouldn't. On his property he had a fence that got washed away and made some trees unsafe. It took him this long to get back on his feet and get everything repaired and a bug tree, which was leaning toward his house, cut down.
Early this year, he lost his wife in a terrible accident, leaving him alone. Like anyone going through something like that, he was left will major bills and now he is a single income Dad. He does what he can but I know this time he is beat. Hurricane Harvey hit his area and just from 8am till now, about 5pm, the water went up to about 4 1/2 feet and still rising. All the work he did, is now gone and he will have to do it again. He could really use the help from anyone of you, anything.
I don't know what an exact dollar amount he would need but hearing bits and pieces, I know he paid out a lot more than I'm asking. I hope those of you who can help him out will tell your friends and family.
I really want to do whatever I can to help and I think this would be a great start. So many people in Houston need help and I want to start by helping my Dad.
Last night, my sister who lives in Missouri City, TX and she and her husband went through a tornado. They are fine, they lost some trees but are stuck on one side of Houston and can't get to my Dad.
I hope anyone here reads this and helps out however.
Thanks to all...
