how to help hurricane harvey victims


if you have even so much as glanced at the internet or a television this past week, you know that the south, particularly huston, texas, has been hit hard by hurricane harvey.  the photos and videos are heartbreaking.  ryan and i were really moved by a video we saw online of a group of volunteers working around the clock to save cats from flooded huston homes.  

we need to come together in times like this to help each other out.  however, the unfortunate reality is that in addition to the reputable donation sites, there are many donation scams out there which sometimes make people leery of donating to those in need.  if you want to help out, but you don't want to get scammed, the ny times put together a list of where to donate to harvey victims and how to avoid scams.  in addition, today good morning america is hosting it's day of giving to benefit hurricane harvey relief and recovery efforts.

love, laurie

Great idea for a day of giving. I feel so sorry for those people. They were hit so hard with that storm.
