Hurricane Relief For Kara's Brother

For those wanting to help individuals impacted by Hurricane Harvey, but don't know how to help or which charity to trust, here's a small way for you to help. Kara's brother lost much of his dental practice in the flood: equipment, computers, dental chairs, etc., as well as flooring, cabinetry and walls. It's one thing to lose your home - fortunately they did not. It's another thing to lose your livelihood; lost wages for him and 7 staff members while they spend weeks and thousands to rebuild. And this after just spending hundreds of thousands to remodel the practice 4 months ago!

We're not looking for much, but any that feel inclined to just donate the equivalent of a meal, every bit will help!

Thank you and God bless!

Update: GoFundMe has asked me to update this posting with the following information, to confirm my relationship to Paul Smith, and how donations will be used.  My name is Alan Paulson - I am married to Paul's sister, Kara.  Kara is from Texas, but we currently live in Utah.  100% of funds donated (minus GoFundMe fees) will be distributed to Paul Smith, to assist in replacing hundnreds of thousands of dollars worth of equipment lost/damaged by Hurricane Harvey.  All funds donated are initially received by me, then will be transferred from my bank account to Paul.  Both Paul and his sister (my wife) are able to see this page and view donations made, and therefore will be able to "audit" and confirm that all donations received by me are delivered to Paul, net of any GoFundMe fees.  

Again, thank you for your kindness!
