Harvey, Climate Change, and a #DayOfGiving
Every morning I start with a fresh cup of coffee and debate turning on the t.v. because I have a hard time pulling away from the screen. I mostly listen to the news on Chicago Progressive Talk WCPT 820 AM (freespeechtv.org) which gives me the freedom to walk my dog, write, and do housework. Nevertheless, this morning I woke up to Good Morning America working with The American Red Cross to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey that are in need of money for urgent supplies as well as meals.
More than 30,000 people were affected by Hurricane Harvey, what can we do to help?
First and foremost, the easiest and quickest way to help is to text HARVEY to ‘90999’ to make a $10 donation. You can also call 1-855-999-GIVE or donate to redcross.org/abc. A few other options include; the Houston Food Bank, Corpus Christi Food Bank, and Texas Diaper Bank. Let’s not forget about the abandoned animals! Please donate to The Houston Humane Society , Houston K-911 Rescue, and the Texas Wildlife Animal Rescue.
For more information, NPR provides a well-compiled list of a variety of organizations – Here’s How You Can Help People Affected By Harvey. AND, to help animals, please check out TODAY’s list – Here’s how you can help animals affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Update 9/6/17 – According to NPR, ” donors might be surprised to learn the Red Cross doesn’t make clear what percentage of their dollars will go directly to helping the victims of the storm.” Check out noredcross.org for more information and decide for yourself.
