Texans Helping Texans

Dear Family and Friends near and far, 

As with many of you, our family is shocked and saddened by the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey. We have donated to the Red Cross and animal shelters but would like to do more. Please consider donating to our Go Fund Me page. With the money raised,  we will prepare welcome kits for the thousands of evacuees and survivors impacted by the storm. Through the Austin Relief Network, the kits will be delivered to the shelters in Houston and Austin. 

With some smart shopping, we can prepare a welcome kit for approx. $10.00 and a baby welcome kit for $25.  Our goal is to deliver 100 kits this weekend.

Please do not feel pressure in any way to donate. I know many of you have already donated through the Red Cross and are getting involved through your church, schools, youth organization, etc. So truly, no pressure.  But if you can donate, please do. Any amount is greatly appreciated. 

I have spoken to folks at the local shelters, and people are arriving with little to no possessions. Everything has been ruined.  It is a truly desperate time. 

Thank you!!!!
Love, The Bjork Family
