Hurricane Harvey Family & Friends

$550 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 15 people in 5 months
Hi I'm TL Dixon, a genetic genealogist, blogger and journalist. 
Hurricane Harvey has devastated Texas and Louisiana, and unfortunately a lot of my Houston family, friends, loved ones and clients became victims of the flood waters.
Some were stuck in their homes and had to be rescued, while others are in shelters but have no idea what to do now. They lost everything. I have at least 10 family members in Houston, including three nieces and a first cousin all with young children who need our help badly, as well extended family and friends. One of my nieces and her children moved from New Orleans to Houston after surviving Hurricane Katrina only to go through the same tragedy again.
Although there are such emergency programs as FEMA and Red Cross around, my family and friends were not successful in receiving their help, which is a common story. So I had to do something to help in a transparent manner.  As such I've started this Fundraiser in good faith to gather my unaffected family and friends to help our affected family and friends recover.  So if you can find it in your heart to donate please help. 
NOTE: This fundraiser will benefit these special Hurricane Harvey victims directly. All funds will be divied up in equal portions to each of the affected families. Funds (sans gofundme and distributions fees) will be released when at least 10% ($1,000) of the goal ($10,000) is reached. Please find it in your hearts to help.
God bless you all and the victims of Hurricane Harvey

Greetings ... I'd like to report that all of monies for my family's Hurricane Harvey relief effort have been distributed. This event hit me hard because I had a niece, grandniece with twins, and a first cousin and her family all enormously affected by Hurricane Harvey. Their struggles continue to this day. I was hoping to raise more funds for them but am grateful for what they received. I also excluded the fees that GoFundMe subtracts so my family could enjoy all of the funds. Again thank you so much and this could not have been possible without your caring hearts. My family thanks you.
Love,
TL Dixon
