Hurricane Relief for Alexis & Baby

$2,910 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 44 people in 20 months
Created August 30, 2017
On August 29th my niece Alexis Johnson (7 months pregnant) was evacuated from her flooded apartment in Houston (see video below).
She lost her car due to the flood water and unfortunately does not have full coverage to replace it.
Alexis works over forty hours a week.  She has found herself in a desperate situation.
In addition to the loss of her only mode of transportation, she has lost everything in her apartment including furniture, clothing, baby items, etc. She was only able to grab a few things that would fit into a couple of bags.
She is not the type to ask for help but allowed me to create this fund campaign for her.
She is already an awesome mother and is trying to stay calm for the sake of her baby boy.  She is in good spirits as she is trying to figure out how to pick up the pieces.
Please donate what you can and please share!

***Update: GoFundMe advised me that I needed to add the information below. This is in an effort to weed out fraudulent fundraisers (a good thing).

My name is Charles Summerhill and Alexis Johnson is my niece. I live in Sahuarita Arizona but am originally from South Arkansas. The funds raised will be used by Alexis to find a dependable car and help replace lost items (everything) from the flood.  Although $5000 will not cover all of her losses, it will be an amazing start towards recovery. Alexis will have full access to the funds and will be able to post updates and thank you messages on this site. Withdrawals of funds will be made entirely by Alexis Johnson and I will serve only as an administrator.

Thank you so much to everyone who was donated!
Alexis has a car! She was able to put a down payment on a reliable car and is back to work. The down side is that she now has a car note she didn't have before. But she is very grateful to be driving again.
She still does not have her own place and is still trying to get back on her feet.
FEMA has not come through for her and she still could use help!
She's not out of the woods yet, but is trying to stay strong for the sake of her soon to be born baby boy.
Thank you!

I texted Alexis to go over details of this campaign. She finally replied but was so exhausted. She has no idea of the funds raised so far. I told her to get some sleep. I know you've all heard the same thing before, but it's true. It all adds up, your $5 is just as important as the biggest. Every donation, smallest to the biggest means so much for our family. Thank you so much. Please consider helping her.
