Houston Relief Effort

I am sure everyone has heard of the devastating flooding in Houston, I have several friends in the Cypress area that were directly affected and would like to provide support for them and their neighbors while they recover. I will be heading to Houston from Buena Vista, Colorado on Friday, September 1st to help support those in need.

My target area is Cypress Texas where families were evacuated. My plan for the funds are as follows:

1. Generator: No idea when power will be restored. Generator allows for charging tools, running refrigerator, heaters for drying framing for the house.
2. Batteries: Power tools and general batteries
3. Building materials and tools
4. Fuel
5. Food
6. Clothing
7. Essentials for sustaining life

This is a dynamic list as the rescue target area is updating me before I leave.

100% will go to the people struck in this flood, direct support, no management fees, organizational costs, just relief while they recover.

Transparency:

1. I am a resident of Buena Vista Colorado
2. The relief will goto friends I have in Cypress Texas and the surrounding friends that are in need.
3. Help will be given to those in what ever seems like the right thing to do
4. Come and talk with me before I leave
5. Receipts will be posted online or though the email I sent out earlier, which ever works best
