Smith / Heggaton Hurricane Relief

My parents, Susanne and James, have lost their home and everything they own in Hurricane Harvey. They also, tragically, lost their two cairn terriers, Jack and Diamond in the flood.

These two compassionate souls have two foster children under their care, as well as my 97 year old grandmother. This GoFundMe is to help them over the short-to-medium-term to defray costs of temporary housing, food, baby supplies, medication, and all the other expenses that come from finding yourself suddenly homeless. 

Thank you for anything you can give.

Edit: GoFundMe requires I provide the following info to help prevent scammers...

Who you are and where you’re from?

Ben Nugent, from Michigan.

Your relationship or contact to the parties you're raising funds for?

Susanne and James Smith are my parents.

How the funds will be spent (be specific as possible)?

All of the money donated will be given to them to spend as they see fit on food, clothing, baby supplies, medicine, and/or temporary housing.

Your withdrawal plan to get the funds from the campaign to the ultimate beneficiary/ies?

I will withdraw the money and send it to them. Not sure how just yet, but probably via check or funds transfer.
