As many of you know, hurricane Harvey has caused significant devastation in parts of Texas, including Katy, where my sister Jennifer lives with her two kids. Their home is still under water and they have lost nearly everything. While they know how fortunate they are to be safe, dry and have each other there is so much that they now need to make it through the next few months (at a minimum) and to rebuild their lives. They are currently not permitted to access the property or the surrounding community and may not be able to for a while, and with that comes significant uncertainty, stress and expenses.
I have set up this gofundme page to help support my sister and her family to help meet their immediate and short term needs in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. They live so far away from those that love them so dearly and while a much needed hug can't reach all the way from Canada I will try to provide support in any way possible.
Please find it in your heart to help out if you can. A little kindness goes a long way in reaching our goal. Any funds raised in excess of their actual need will be donated forward by them to other families in their direct community impacted by this disaster.
Thank you so much,
Sheri Raines (aka. Jennifer's sister) from Calgary, Alberta, Canada
