Carrizales Road to Recovery

Hello Friends and Family, 

As we all have seen, Hurricane Harvey has caused destructionand heartbreak to many people in Texas. My best friend's (Viri) parents unfortunately have lost their home, vehicle, and belongings due to flooding in their Houston neighborhood, Pondersa Forest. They were able to safely evacuate Friday. It is unknown when they will be able to return to their homes as the neighbohood is completely inundated. 

News Video Link to their Neighborhood:

If anyone has met Viri or her family, they know firsthand, the caring, giving people that they are. Mr. and Mrs. Carrizales have always been there for others during challenging times. I would like to join efforts with whoever is able to help them get back on the road to recovery during these difficult times. Any donations that you or your friends/family can make are greatly appreciated. 

Due to potential fraud, I've been asked by gofundme to detail my relationship to Viri and her parents. My name is Sophia and I am from Los Angeles, CA. I've known Viri and her family for over ten years, when I lived in Houston.  All funds will go directly to Viri's Parents and their son for their direct withdrawal into a rebuilding account. They will use the funds to rebuild their home and their lives.
