Well…I didn’t intend on taking all last week off from the blog! If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that with everything going on in Houston, I just didn’t feel like blogging or posting much. I’ll try to catch up a bit this week, but, before I get there, I want to do my part and share a few ways you can contribute to hurricane Harvey relief. So many amazing bloggers have posted about numerous ways to help. So instead of rehashing the same information, I want to point you to a few of them:
+ My friend Avital posted about numerous organizations providing hurricane relief (including some shop for a cause options). See her post here.
+ Veronika, a lovely Houston blogger posted a ton of donation links here. She’s also generously donating the proceeds of any commissions made through her affiliate links to organizations providing hurricane relief.
+ If you have a soft spot for animals (like we do), check out the amazing work done by Dallas Dogrrr in rescuing the animals from the Tall Tails Animal Rescue. Watching their story early last week was gut wrenching and inspiring at the same time. Kevin & Kat from Tall Tails lost everything (including their home) in a matter of hours. However, they sacrificed everything to save the 120 dogs, cats and pigs they had in their shelter. Based on the information they’ve been posting, they didn’t have flood insurance, so it will truly take a miracle for their shelter to be rebuilt. You can donate through their PayPal me account here. You can also donate to Dallas Dogrrr here. Not only did Dallas Dogrrr participate and coordinate the rescue of the animals, but they are also currently caring for many of the Tall Tails Dogs.

We’ve seem so much outpouring of support in the last week. It’s been really heart warming. However, as you know, the attention and the support often dies down quickly. Once Hurricane Harvey news falls off the new cycle, donations will be far and few. So whether you are a fellow Texan or thousands of miles away, please consider donating now.
