    Thank ya'll for taking a second to read! I'm hoping you will all find it in your hearts to make a donation no matter how big or how small! 
    
    John has been moved to put action behind his concern and compassion for those being effected by the floods in Texas. He has already spent so much of his own money getting together supplies to make his way to Texas to join emergency response in their rescue  and care efforts for those effected by this catastrophy.  Joining him, is Amber, and they are both incredibly brave to be sacrificing their own time and safety to make a difference any way they can. This is going to be very physically and emotionally challenging I'm sure and along the way, these two are going to need whatever help we can send their way. 

    They are going to be taking a boat through flood areas to assist with search and rescue teams in locating and rescuing people who are trapped by these floods. They are also going to be purchasing supplies and making sure that they get to those who need them most! 

    Take a minute and think about the items that you and your family or friends use on a daily basis. Imagine being without those necessities due to flooding waters with no access to your home or belongings. That is what the people in the flooded areas of Texas are dealing with at this moment. Diapers, Clean water, Food, Bottles and formula, Clothes. This list could go on and on. Those are just a few things that John and Amber are going to be trying to supply to these people while they have a way to get these items to those that need them. They are also going to need gasoline so that they can continue to use the boat and power their generator. This stuff isnt free.
So far, we have used donated money to purchase a 6ft table, popup tent, 3 cases of diapers, 4 cases of baby food, blankets, batteries, and we plan to purchase more as soon as funds are released from GoFundMe. I have set up withdrawals to come out daily into an account I have opened so that we have access to the funds to spend them on supplies for this trip. You can follow John on Facebook Grant or myself and see live what your contributions are doing for those effected by Hurricane Harvey. Thank you

  We are all here safe with our families and dry.The least we can do is send what we can to help those who are able to go to Texas and give their time and physical efforts. It doesn't matter if your donation is $1, $2, $5, $10, or more. Every cent can be promised to go directly to the rescue efforts as well as the items they are going to be purchasing to donate. Ya'll may not know John or Amber, but you know me. You also know that I wouldn't put my support behind somone who wouldn't deserve it more than these two right now. So if not for them, for me, please, make a small donation to help them along the way. Thank ya'll so much!! Love you mean it and God Bless ya'll!

I cannot begin to explain how amazing the response has been to requests for help in OUR efforts. Each one of you who have donated, along with each individual that gave their time to volunteer has made an outstanding impact on not only the communities that we have done our best to serve in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, but we've also inspired our own community and communities internationally who have seen interviews in the news of our response!
This is truly incredible and we are all blessed to be a part of such wonderful networking and friendship. We have surpassed our original goal by $1280. Phenomenal. Thank you for being so giving and willing to assist in the ways that you could. This effort will continue as we still plan to ship items down, and there are a few from our community still down trying to make a difference anyway they can.
This has taken a toll on those who have left jobs, companies, etc to step up and play their roll in caring for our neighbors. Please don't stop here. There are a lot of costs behind being able to make this possible and continue to find ways to get the things needed to those in Texas. Most of us used our personal money to cover large costs until we started receiving help from like minded individuals. We will leave this GoFundMe page up for a while in hopes that if anyone else feels generous enough to help with the cost associated with this large effort to help the victims, that they will do so and know and see that their donation has been put to good use.
We thank you all and love you all so much and couldn't be more proud of the Carolinas and the love that they have shown throughout this process!
