My heart is just breaking for what Houston is going through right now. Harvey has just devastated so many people’s houses! Thankfully Jeremy and I’s houses have been dry and we are safe! There is so much than can be done even from your home.
Jeremy and I have been going to our church, The Met at 1300 Jones rd, which is a shelter! If you want to volunteer at the met follow this link to get signed up! We welcomed people who were being dropped off, donated items and just made sure people were comfortable. It’s heartbreaking to see what Harvey has done to the neighborhoods.
We have both just felt so helpless! I had a blog posts scheduled for this week, but couldn’t in a good conscious post about makeup products I’m loving when my city is in such disarray. I saw some of my fellow Houston bloggers blog about Harvey and felt like information about Harvey in my little corner of the internet might not do much but it’ll do some and that’s what Houston needs right now.
Here is some business that is donating part or all of their profits to help Houston:
- ARL pearls- for every purchase of the whitehaven necklace they will donate to Harvey! Use code RK17 for free shipping
- Kendra Scott is donating 50% of profit today 8/29 through midnight to the Red Cross. They also have free shipping
- Magnolia market is donating all profits from their Texas Forever shirts to the restoring homes in Houston
- There are some fellow Texans creating shirts to sell and 100% of the proceeds are going to Harvey. Texas sweet tee’s. Texas strong. Texas strong comfort color. University Tee. Texas tough.
- James Avery is donating 100% of the profit from their Texas charm to the Harvey relief effort
If you are wanted to donate anything to shelters here are some things they might need other than clothing. TheMet has more than enough donations, but not every shelter is the same:
- XL kennels
- Unscented wipes
- Pillows & blankets
- Toys for children
If you want to donate finacial TheMet is taking donations through this site. It is a secure site for donations and will go straight to the people of Houston!
I have never seen weather conditions quite like this and above all else, we as a nation, need to come together in prayer for not just Houston but for TX!
