As many of you know, my sister lost everything due to Hurricane Harvey. Like so many in Houston, she had to evacuate and leave everything behind. Harvey destroyed her townhouse and everything she owned. I have had a lot of people ask Gloria and me what they can do to help. They need help starting their lives over. A donation, no matter how small, would be greatly appreciated by Gloria, Sydney, London and Brooklyn. Thank you to everyone for your kind words, prayers and help thus far. They definitely have a long road ahead of them but with our help, hopefully we can make things a little bit easier for them.
The GoFundMe Page has asked that I provide some more background information for this. For those who do not know me, my name is Ellise Stire. I grew up in Houston, Texas but now live in Ontario, Canada. My sister, Gloria, still lives in Houston with my three nieces. Even though I am in Canada, Gloria will be the beneficiary of all donations and this why the page is set up in US currency. The donations will be used to replace everything Gloria and her girls lost - clothing, furniture, food, toiletries, etc. Basically the every day things that we all need.
