As a Texan, and a proud Houstonian, sitting by and watching my neighbors in need is not an option. While FEMA and the Red Cross are doing an amazing job housing the displaced residents of our cities, they need supplies. While the main shelters are well stocked (the George R. Brown center, NRG Stadium etc), Red Cross is opening up smaller shelters across the Houston area to continue to accommodate the people coming in. These smaller shelters need supplies depending on the people that arrive. Some shelters need more food and baby products, while others maybe housing more elderly. They are posting the supplies they need donated. I would like to help in any way I can, and this is one of them.
I will be donating my own money and will also be gathering money to go out and get the supplies that are needed for the shelters. The process (buying the supplies that are needed), along with the delivery of said products will be broadcasted live to ensure every one of your loving dollar amounts has been accounted for in the way you wanted it to be. Every dollar helps, but you can also donate to the Red Cross instead:
Here is the list of supplies that the shelters will need and what I will be getting:
Who you are and where you’re from: I am from Houston, Texas
Your relationship or contact to the parties you're raising funds for: I am raising money that will purchase supplies for Hurrican Harvey. Supply shopping will be live broadcasted, and so will the drop off at BBVA Compass.
How the funds will be spent (be specific as possible): The funds will be spent on the following:
2. Baby Formula
3. Medical Supplies (medicine etc?) Not sure on this one
4. Bottled Water
8. Feminine Products
9. Baby Wipes
10. Toys for kids
19. Dog food
20. Cat food
21. Hand Sanitizer
Your withdrawal plan to get the funds from the campaign to the ultimate beneficiary/ies: I will be paying with my personal funds to start and match the goal above. Once the supplies are bought delievered, and broadcasted I will send the money to my account for reimbursement.
