Praying for Texas and How You Can Help


As you are all aware, the devastation in Texas is heartbreaking. It makes me so proud as an American to see so many from near and far pitching in to help those affected by Harvey. I have tweeted/instagramed about how you can help, but I also wanted to provide the info to all of you here that may not have seen my social links.

So here are some ways you can donate:

Texas Diaper Bank  (you have the option to mail physical diapers, too, so I Amazon Prime'd diapers to the address: 5415 Bandera Road, Suite 504, San Antonio, Tex., 78238). If you have Amazon Prime, this will literally take not even a minute of your time.... 200+ diapers only cost around $30, too, and Amazon suggests wipes to go with it, so for an extra $12, you can get almost 500 wipes...every bit helps).

Red Cross (you can text HARVEY to 90999 for a $10 donation, but I went online so I could donate more!).

Catholic Charities
Houston Food Bank
Houston SPCA
Houston Humane Society

Also, please feel free to comment on this post with any other ways people can help- so everyone be sure to check out the comment section! You can also check out this article here and here with more resources on how to help. Thinking of everyone in Texas... lots of love from Pittsburgh!

Hi,
You have to try Nest candles. I have tried low end to super high end and although these are on the pricier side, the scents are amazing, they are long lasting and the frosted glass jar is adorable. I love the grapefruit scent, the Sicilian tangerine, and the lemongrass but I really love at least 10 of them. I am very scent sensitive and can't even wear the lightest perfume and these don't bother me at all.
Have a great one!

I have been a very loyal follower of Summerwind for over 2 years now and was so proud when I saw this Wednesday's post. I was born and raised in Houston and am currently living just south of the city. I have a house in Sienna Plantation which is one of the places that was under a mandatory evacuation as well as getting tornado damage. I myself as well as my cousin and her husband who also live in Sienna chose to stay and have been extremely lucky. No water or tornado damage but lived with the fear for 4 days. Still water logged in so cannot leave but still in fear of the rising Brazos. Thank you so much for the prayers and help. We are truly living proof that God hears prayers. Thanks to the rest of the state and the other 49 for everything.
