Ellen Brinks - Harvey Recovery Fund

My friend Ellen, is going through the unimaginable. Her beautiful home, that she just moved into 2 months ago, is under water. She is among the many that have been effected by the devastation brought on by hurricane Harvey. Right now she is estimating that she'll be out of our house for minimum 1 year but more likely 2. She and her fiancé John are engaged but will most likely have to postpone any wedding plans because they won't be able to afford a wedding now that they have to replace everything that was lost when their house flooded. Any money raised will help with long term lodging because they will be paying their mortgage and having to rent a place or get a hotel room.

Ellen is one of the most kind hearted people I have ever met and I can't think of anyone more deserving of your support. Any donation, big or small is greatly appreciated!
