Wow guys! These last couple of weeks have been an absolute whirlwind. We just moved back to Texas last summer and we live right between Galveston and Houston. My husband is active duty Coast Guard so we, as a family, decided to ride out Hurricane Harvey with him while he was on recall status and couldn’t evacuate. We were incredibly fortunate that we sustained no damage to our property but some of our surrounding areas were not so lucky. It will be a long recovery but Texas is amazing. I am not from Texas but honestly, we love it here. The communities have stepped up in so many ways and I am glad to have been able to help with donations, delivering supplies and making hot meals for the Coast Guard guys the flew in from other stations to help with the rescue efforts in the Houston and surrounding areas.
I want to be able to donate more money to the relief efforts so this is where you will come in. I’ve designed a few ‘Texas’ mugs and 100% of the proceeds from any of these 3 mugs will go directly to 2 charities of my choosing.
The first one is the Coast Guard Foundation. I’ve been a part of the US Coast Guard family for almost 20 years (seriously, he’s like 3 weeks away from hitting his 20 year mark). Many of the Coast Guard families in the immediate area have lost everything so these donations are so crucial.
The second charity is JJ Watt Foundation. I’m sure you’ve seen his efforts on the news and he’s doing amazing work here in the Houston area.
Not only will 100% of the proceeds from these specific items go to these great charities, 50% of all Painting Paris Pink proceeds this month will go to them as well.
How can you help? Well, you can buy something 🙂 If not, then please at least share this to spread the word.
