Hello Friends and Family. As many of you know, Hurricane Harvey has caused extreme devastation to SE Texas and surrounding areas. Many families have lost everything.
Although my parents and sister are safe, along with their fur babies, their homes haven't been so lucky. As of Wednesday morning there was four to five feet of standing water inside their homes and my dad's car is completely submerged. We are unaware of further damages at this time, but with this much flooding, who knows what the extent could be.
My parents and sister are some of the most caring, giving and hard working people I know. My dad has served 34 years in the Coast Gaurd, and still works as a civilian contractor for them. Both my mom and dad are volunteer firefighters within their small community, always stopping what they are doing just to help a neighbor in need. My sister works full time for a company that aides medically fragile children while also taking on a full load of classes towards her degree in social work. As this is her last year of school, she was planning on moving back to Washington state by next summer, but is now unsure of when this will be possible.
I have been so fortunate to have had there support in everything I do, but now it's my turn to help give back. Unfortunately, I can't do it on my own so I am calling on you to help with however much you can. My goal is to reach $10,000. Any amount is helpful and so very appreciated. If you don't want to donate here, I am offering $100 yellow rose tattoos at NorCal Tattoo in Arcata, Ca with all proceeds going to my family.
Thank you for your support towards my family via, thoughts, prayers or donations. God bless Texas.
