Bavoso's Hurricane Relief Fund

Less than 1 month ago, my parents, Karen and Tom Bavoso, celebrated their 20th anniversary in their home. This is the first and only house they've ever owned, and we became Texans in this house.

Like so many others in southeast Texas, it is now 4-6 ft underwater. We haven't been able to make it back to assess the damage entirely, but we did get one glimpse of the street as photographed by our neighbor this morning.

We have a lot of work ahead of us, and every little bit will help. I understand everyone can't donate to all those affected by this hurricane, especially if you're are dealing with the exact same damage in your own family. But if you're looking to contribute in some way, please consider contributing to getting my parent's back in their home. Any amount will do and we appreciate any help we receive!

If you feel you would rather donate directly to Tom and Karen (gofundme does take a portion of the donations) please message me directly and I will give the information. Thank you all again!
