After watching on tv for the past week the devastation of so much of south east Texas, my heart is heavy.
It's hard to even comprehend the loss and what so many have gone thru. Watching from the comfort of my own home reminds me how fortunate we are, and how it's so easy to take even the smallest things for granted.
The need is great, and there are so many people who are desperate for help. Can you imagine escaping with only the clothes on your back? Some people didn't even have shoes on when they were rescued. And they were the lucky ones. They made it out.
Can you imagine losing everything?
Granted things are just that, things.
But, photographs, family heirlooms that have been passed down for generations, those are the things that just can't be replaced.
One small bright spot is seeing all of the rescue workers who are selflessly giving of themselves to save others. From the first responders to the volunteers.
I've cried many tears, and I'm sure you have to.
These people need our help. Not just short term, but for the long haul. If you are able to help, please consider donating. Whether it be food, clothing, or cash, anything no matter how small is needed.
If you aren't able to donate cash, you can still give!
All Camping World locations across the country are accepting donations of new and gently used clothing.
They are also accepting blankets, pet food, and other items.
If you can make a monetary donation, they will match dollar for dollar. Their drive is going on thru Labor Day.
Here is a link to Camping World's Facebook page.
Of course there are many more organizations that are doing drives.
Let's all come together and support Texas.
