One of the houses in the cover photo is my grandpa's which is the house we grew up in and the heart of my family and the other is that of my uncle, aunt, and their 2 small children. Several additional family memebers live with my grandpa. They were all fortunate enough to make it out in time, but lost all of their belongings, houses, and one car.
Hurricane Harvey has also forced our sister Alicia Gallien to leave her home along with her husband and 4 children (one of which has special needs) due to the threat of flooding in her area, no electricity, nor running water. She is still unable to return to her house.
As you can imagine this is a very stressful situation as my entire family has been forced to seek shelter within my mom's tiny 650 Sq. Ft. apartment and one other family member that did not recieve flooding.
As a result, we are trying to help raise money to go toward immediate needs such as school clothes, school supplies, medicine, diapers for the children, toiletries, food, bed linens, medication for my elderly grandpa and nephew who has a heart defect.
The conditions in Beaumont, Texas are harsh as there is still no clean running water. Many of our extended family and friends have lost everything as well. So, we just want to do whatever we can to help our immediate family get on their feet, so that they can pass the kindness on and help our others rebuild.
My grandfather has lived 97 years on this earth and worked very hard to provide for all of us and has now lost everything he's ever owned. So, any donations and prayers would definitely be appreciated by my family and I. The money will be strictly used for the above items. Feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns. We Thank you for your time and consideration.
