Harvey help fund for the Benthalls

Hi, my name is Nicole Benthall, most people know me as Moose. I live in Houston and the house my family I lived in and rented is located off Dairy Ashford in Houston, and it's less than a mile away from Buffalo Bayou as well as being right beside 2 man made lakes. The bayou has overflowed into the lakes and flooded my house, and there is currently 4 feet of water in my house, which used to be over 5. The city has said that the water level won't go down for another 3-4 weeks. The only way to get to my house is by boat. The car in our garage is completely under water, as well as all of my boxes from my first year of college. Everything I took to college last year that I was supposed to take with me to my next year is underwater. I can't begin to describe everything inside the house we lost. Childhood pictures, appliances, the same things everyone else in Houston lost. This campaign isn't very formal, as my dad and I won't be able to start working on the house for about another month when the water goes down. I know there's a lot of these campaigns and a lot of things to donate to, so I understand that anything helps. I thought it would be a good idea because of the overwhelming amount of support I've been getting and amount of people asking if they can help me and my family. Asking for anything, especially money, is really not something I'm comfortable with doing, but I'm really not sure what else I can do at this point to fix things. We will be getting help from insurance and possibly FEMA for our rental home, so to be clear this money will cover what we have left to take care of after their help, such as recovering some of the things we lost, temporary displacement issues, and possible relocation needs. Thank you :)
