$2,925raised of $3,000 target by 27 supporters

    Weʼve raised $2,925 to help my cousin Katie, as well as her neighbors in Houston, who lost all their belongings due to flooding from Hurricane Harvey.

    Houston, Texas, United States
    Funded on Saturday, 30th September 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    My dear cousin, Katie and her boyfriend Dustin live in Houston in a first floor apartment building. They left only with their cats as the flood water from Hurricane Harvey was rising. They lost everything, clothes, furniture, you get the picture. They thought they did, but they did not have separate flood insurance. The insurance company told them they could file the claim through renter's insurance, but it would most likely not be approved for reimbursement. Please help if you can. Every little bit helps.

    We are asking for monetary donations however big or small, as well as donations of gently used clothing. Katie, Dustin, and several of their neighbors are also in need of clothing. Specific sizes include Men: Medium and Large, shoes 8.5 and Women: Large and XLarge, shoes 8.5. I will have a dropbox at my desk at work and can also pick up from the Charleston area so feel free to message me on Facebook!

    We want to mail the clothing next week so please look for items you can donate ASAP.

    I will provide pictures and words of gratitude from the recipients so you will see and know directly how you've helped a small community get their lives back together.

    Thank you so much!
