It’s hard to watch all that is going on in Houston, Port A, Rockport, Galveston, Beaumont, etc. Over 50 counties flooded, over 30,000 people are in shelters and things aren’t over yet. As a matter of fact, it’s just starting for many families. It breaks my heart but as always there are bright spots. For me it’s in watching how people are jumping in to help.
There are so many non-profits posed to provide relief but there are also many individuals finding creative ways to help. I’ve listed a few that I’ve come so you can find a way to help too.
How You Can Provide Help for Hurricane Harvey Victims
- 100% of the proceeds for this ‘God Bless Texas’ t-shirt via Nancy Page will go to the Diocese of the Western Gulf Coast. God Bless Texas.

- Dear Daughter, Hilliary Cheatham, is a Texas girl living in China who decided to do something even though she’s half way round the world. Her Texas Strong t-shirt is only $25. and it will most certainly brighten up your spirits (and the people deep in the heart of Texas) with your support.
- Pre-order the Texas Forever Journal from Hallie Darphin and the gals at Dot Products. Hallie emailed me to let me know she wanted to get the word out. She wrote, “Couldn’t imagine not doing one small thing. We lost our home in Katrina when I was in ninth grade, and lots of Texans came to love on us.” :)
