Hurricane Harvey: Creative Ways To Donate

I’ve been watching the news non-stop, crying, smiling but mostly in awe of how much help the city of Houston has received from near and far. Fortunately, we didn’t flood, lose power or water but many of our friends and family have lost everything and we can’t imagine what that must feel like. Houston was hit with 5 years worth of rain in 5 days and it’s been horrible to sit back and just look while everything happened.

We’ve had a great desire to help but it’s been impossible because of impassable roads that are flooded. Along with my hubby, we’ve been sorting, labeling and compiling clothing and food and when when the roads are safe again, we’ll head to a shelter and drop off donations to help this city we love so much!

If you want to help from home, please check out my list below! Buy a “Texas Strong” coffee cup to lift the spirits of your coworkers or sweeten someone’s day with some “Houston” cookies and feel amazing knowing you’ll be donating to Harvey victims in the process! Also, a lot of these are small business that have also been affected by Hurricane Harvey so shop, shop, shop and help Houston recover in the process.

Please let me now if you’d like to be added to this list by shooting me an email to nicole@lipstickandbrunch.com

Yesterday, When The Sun Came Out!

Yesterday, the sun came out for the first time since  last Thursday and I’ve never been happier! Actually, let me take back anything horrible I ever said about the unbearable Houston heat! Even though it’s not raining anymore, the relief efforts and flood rescues are still taking place right now; there are still families stuck in their homes and blocked roads.

Please donate to any organization supporting Hurricane Harvey, volunteer at your local shelter and start putting donations aside because I’m positive that more things will be needed in a few days (some shelters are currently overflowing with clothing donations for example). I know we’ll pull through this together because we’re #HoustonStrong and we love this city!
