Help for the Dukes Family

Due to Hurricane Harvey, one of our good friends & colleagues at our company is one of the many affected by this natural disaster.  His family's home has been completed flooded, and we found out this week that the family's home in Houston did not have flood insurance.  We are trying to fundraise money to surprise the Dukes family and hopefully at the very least provide some emergency funds in this time of need.  We are seeing how much we can raise in the next few weeks - as his family is trying to figure out where to live, what to recover from their house, etc.  Any donation would be more than appreciated to help out our good friend and colleague affected by this natural disaster. 

Who we are: 
- Team members from the same company
Where we are from: 
- CA, NYC, TX
- I am based in the Bay Area, CA
How the funds will be spent: 
- Will add Dukes directly as beneficiary to withdraw once presented to him from the team
- Ideally funds used for temporary housing while the Dukes family recovers and get things in order
- Plane ticket(s) as needed for the Dukes family 
- Travel funds to get out of HTX as needed
- Any funds to help the family get back on their feet, including transportation (their cars were affected)
