Ways to Support Hurricane Harvey Victims

Unless you are living under a rock, you have watched the news and heard of the devastation that has hit Houston and the surrounding area from Hurricane Harvey. According to, Patrick Blood, a National Weather Service Meteorologist, this is the worst flood Houston has ever experienced. What will be the new normal for Houston? What is going to happen to the city? There are so many unanswered questions, yet so much we can do as outsiders. We have the ability to give back, make a difference, and show support.

Here are ways for those across the country to give back. Share this with your friends and family. Let's send our love and thoughts to help fellow citizens recover from this horrible devastation. A few funds will do along way.

The Texas Diaper Bank, based out of San Antonio, is putting together relief kits for families with very small children who need clean diapers. For some organizations they have to choose between bringing food or diapers to affected areas. The Texas Diaper Bank fills the need and allows other organizations to bring necessary items.

Global Giving, a site I recently read about, is a fundraising platform that has put together a campaign to support local nonprofits and community organizations. "All donations to this fund will exclusively support relief and recovery efforts from this storm." Donate here. I personally made a donation earlier today.

Personally, I am not a pet owner, yet know many people who own dogs, cats, and other animals. Animals just like humans deserve a home, even after the storm. The SPCA of Texas is taking in many hundreds of animals uprooted from their homes. Whether you can donate to defray the cost or even foster an animal until united with their owners you are making a huge difference.

Trusted World needs money and supplies. You can donate here or see what can be dropped off in Dallas here.

You can also support any of the following, which I highly recommend:




Do your part today and make a difference in the lives affected by Hurricane Harvey.
