Hurricane Harvey-Building Simple

$100,000 goal

Campaign created 9 months ago

In response to the devastation left by Hurricane Harvey, Building Simple Inc. is ready to help bring provisional solutions to the many individuals in housing needs as a result of the devastations left by Hurricane Harvey. 

Building Simple, Inc., founded by Cora Coleman, is a community development S Corp based in Houston, TX that provides Residential & Non-Residential structures from solid-steel containers. These sustainable, customizable and nomadic structures provide solutions meeting the unique demands to ensure growth to every community. 

Cora C. Coleman, better known as “Queen Cora”, is an author, producer, business owner, and international drummer. Her showmanship is recognized as inspiring, passionate and explosive. Throughout her music career, she has performed in 40 countries, before hundreds of thousands of attendees and millions of viewers. In addition to her 5-year tenure with Prince and 3-year tenure with Beyoncé, she is the only musician to play in 2 of the United States NFL’s Top 10 Best Super Bowl Half-Time Shows with both artists. Queen Cora graduated valedictorian of Kashmere High School (Houston, Texas, USA) and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Music Performance at Howard University in Washington, D.C., USA. 

Hurricane Harvey has left Houston families with approximately 40,000 homes reported destroyed (and growing), along with unaccounted number of houses needing repairs to rebuild them back into warm homes to welcome many displaced Houstonians.
