Ivonne & Jose's Harvey Fund

Hola Amigos,

Debido al Huracan Harvey que afecto Houston, Texas; mis amigos Ivonne y Jose tuvieron la peor experiencia de sus vidas.  Perdieron todas sus pertenencias, casa, carros, ropa, etc. debido a la inundacion.  En la tarde del Domingo, Agosto 27 del 2017, tuvieron que abandonar su casa con sus tres hijos y la abuela materna.  Nadaron por mas de una milla (1.6 Km) hasta que lograron ser rescatados por un bote.  Quisiera que de alguna manera los ayudaramos para que comiencen de nuevo sus vidas .  Les agradezco de corazon cualquier ayuda.  Juntos podemos hacer la diferencia para esta familia.

Dios los bendiga.

Our friends Ivonne and Jose lost everything during hurricane Harvey.  They lost their house, cars, clothes and all belongings.  On Sunday, August 27th they left their house with their three children and grandmother.  They swam for a mile until they were rescued by a boat.  We have organized this fundraising to help them to start their lives again.  We really appreciate your help and support on this great cause. 

God bless you.

No amount is too small and everything helps!

All proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly to the beneficiery's account.
