Hurricane Harvey Family In Need

Hello Everyone,

My name is Eric Vachira and I live in Houston, TX

As the world knows at this time hurricane Harvey has completely devastated parts of Houston and the surrounding areas and many people have lost everything due to this unbelievable event.  I am creating this gofundme for my sister and her family who are among the victims that have had their entire home and automobiles in Houston completely flooded.  Unfortunately they are among the many that live in a "no flood zone" and therefore do not have flood insurance to help compensate for the destruction.  They have spent their lives investing in their home which they loved so much and had created a great place to raise their 3 children.  Now after this unimaginable event all of which they worked so hard for has been stripped from them with little help coming their way.  I am trying to raise money in order for them to try and salvage/rebuild their home, the losses they are incurring exceed what is being asked.  For those of you who have seen the devastation and have been looking for ways to help, this is your opportunity to give to help a family who have had their lives turned upside down almost overnight.  They are truly great people who have always been willing to help others and they would never ask for help themselves but now they need the help more than ever! 

**Please know that they will have direct access to this fund and your donations are helping them directly!

Thank you!
