Created September 3, 2017
The Funky Waffle is headed to Houston for a family to live in while they rebuild their lives after Hurricane Harvey.  If you would like to contribute to this project - any donation would be appreciated and 100% of the funds will go directly to families in Houston.

All the funds collected will go to shipping the RV down to Houston and any remaining funds will go directly to families affiliated with the Saint Vincent dePaul Catholic School in Houston, TX.  If you would like to learn more about the school, please click on this link

What an amazing experience this has been to watch strangers helping strangers in a time of need.  
Today (9/7) marks ONE WEEK since i sent this text to my friend in Houston. In that time - our amazing community has raised over $15,000. We have practically gutted and rebuilt the Funky Waffle so it is beautiful and ready. This morning, I will fill it with endless supplies donated by all you generous hearts. We will also be driving down with over $450 in gift cards to be used by families in Houston. And my very favorite part - I have exactly $507.53 in individual envelopes with letters from children who donated their OWN money ... these envelopes will be spontaneously given to people in Houston who look like they need a lift ... some came with requests to give it to a mom who looks like she is stressed and the one with $2.53 was given in hopes that it goes to a first responder for some much needed coffee maybe. I am in awe really. It is like kindness and love are contagious up here and I am deeply honored to be able to deliver the Funky Waffle with all of our love to Houston.

The plan right now is to leave this afternoon from Hillendale Elementary School... what a special send off it will be with all those beautiful young faces cheering us on.

Chadds Ford / Kennett Square has a heart the size of Texas that is for sure!!!

Sovana Bistro, a locally owned restaurant  in Kennett has stepped up to host a Dine & Donate event on Sunday night - donating and matching 20 percent of the sales. So there is more love to send even after we leave.

The  side of the Funky Waffle now says "From the Mushroom Capital of the World to the Lone Star State - we have your back Houston!!!  Harvey made us all a little bit Texan!"

We love you all ... truly a magical experience watching a community rise and shine to help strangers in need!!!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly.

No donation amount is too small.  Thank you VERY MUCH for your consideration.

Sincerely - Mary Liz & Bill Cawley

Ann Lewis is act as the temporary beneficiary of this money as it gets distrubuted to families in need.

Today marks ONE WEEK since I sent a text to my friend in Houston asking if she knew anyone who could use my old and nothing fancy 1989 RV. In that time - our amazing community has raised over $15,000. We have practically gutted and rebuilt the Funky Waffle so it is beautiful and ready. This morning, I will fill it with endless supplies donated by all you generous hearts. We will also be driving down with over $450 in gift cards to be used by families in Houston.
