HOUSTON HURRICANE HARVEY UPDATE FROM ME AND ASKING FOR YOUR HELP. My family was mercifully spared flooding during the recent Hurricane Harvey Floods in Houston. We are grateful for all of you reaching out to me to see if we were okay.
But many others were not so fortunte. I have decided if each of us in Houston that didnt flood would reach out and adopt a family or person who did flood we could help get our city up and running again. So I have adopted a Single Mother with 3 kids who lost everything…and I mean everything ! I will donate my 22% commission to them from any purchases from my Close To My Heart business during the month of September 2017 to help get this family back on their feet. Can you help by making a purchase today ? Shop @ Debbieoneal.ctmh.com.
Meet the family I adopted to help. This is a hard working mother with 4 year old twins (boy and girl) and 11 year old son. They were struggling before the hurricane hit. Their apartment was flooded, they barely managed to escape the flood waters. You may have seen the dramatic rescues by helicopter and boat on the news from their very apartment complex. Their car was flooded and a total loss. They didnt have renters insurance and FEMA will only help so much and it takes a long time. We have been working around the clock to get them in a safe place, basic needs met and the kids ready to start school later this month. But they will need much more help to get their life back. I have known this family for many years, a Christian Mom raising good kids the best way she can. They are always the first ones to offer to help others and now it is our turn to help them. We salvaged the little that we could but it wasnt much. They will need so much…furniture, beds, and everyday house hold items. I want to raise some money to help them get what they will need to try and return their lives to some form of normalcy.
Here are a few ideas of NEW products you might want to consider but any of the products in either the CTMH Annual Catalog or NEW Holiday Seasonal Catalog below qualify for my Harvey Flood Victim Fund Raiser. Remember, 22% of your purchase will be donated to help my adopted family.
