“Deep in the Heart of Texas” How You Can Help the Victims of Hurricane Harvey

We are simply devastated by the scope of destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey this past week in Texas, (and pray that Louisiana is spared.)  The more I watch the more I feel helpless. I did want to share a few ways that you can help. If you click on the photo below, you will be taken to a blog post that our friends at Rumpy Dog wrote earlier in the week that lists fabulous ways that you can help.

Click on the photo to read Rumpy Dog’s suggestions on how you can help Texas in this awful tragedy.

Our friend, Paris at Dogtipper lives in the Austin area (and had to evacuate herself with FOUR PETS, read her tips on her sister blog Cattipper), today posted more ways that you can help on her blog.

The NY Times also posted ways that you can help.

Have an iPhone? Apple users in the U.S. can also donate to the American Red Cross through the company’s iTunes and app stores. Amounts range from $5 to $200, and you can’t use store credit.

If you are in the Detroit area as I am and would like to help, you can learn more about how to help below:

  5. Thank you so much for sharing various ways people can help folks out in the flooded areas. As you know I have family both in the Austin and Houston areas (they are all fine, thankfully) and love the thoughts, prayers and support given to them and all those affected by this 500 year storm. Mother Nature was extra cruel this past weekend. 😓

  9. I cannot even IMAGINE what this is like. I can’t. It breaks my heart. Breaks it. It was crazy to listen to the news prior to the hurricane’s entrance to TX… They knew it was going to be insanely powerful and were basically describing what would happen and BAM it did!! 🙁

  11. Thank you so much for your concern for Louisiana. I’m pleased and thankful to report that here in Louisiana (and New Orleans, to be exact) we were fortunate to escape the wrath of Harvey. Our state is currently opening our doors and our hearts to shelter the people and pets who have suffered so much. They did the same for us 12 years ago when Katrina struck. Thank you for sharing the many ways that people can help.

  12. It sure was so devstating and horrible beyond word.
    We can do a lot of things and feel powerful, but when it comes to the wrath of weather gone crazy we can do naught but cower and hope for the best.

    I pray that all those affected will be able to find the help and all they stand in need of.

  13. Thank you for sharing such an informative post and links to organizations. I wasn’t aware that Apple users could donate through I-Tunes to the Red Cross. That is great to hear.
