Helping my parents rebuild

My name is Will Rogers, and I grew up in Port Aransas. On Friday August 25, Misty, my sister, and I watched in horror as Hurrican Harvey destroyed my parents' house where my parents chose to stay during the hurricane. 

These are our parents, Billy and Paulette Rogers. Although they're smiling--and clearly happy to be alive--they lost everything in Hurricane Harvey.

Behind them is their home of 20 years and the clothes they're wearing are among the last of their possessions. My father is a mechanic and lost all his tools and his work truck.

While they rebuild their lives, Misty and I are asking for your help. In the coming weeks, they'll need to arrange housing and transportation, food and clothing, and anything you can give will help them. The sooner we get help to them, the sooner they can start recovering what's been lost.
