Happy September, Back-to-School, Almost Fall and Change-of-Season! Summer is truly done. I had a hard time getting back to my desk…not just because I became accustomed to lazier days but because I’ve been riveted, like many, to the hurricane that hit and toppled much of Houston. My immediate family is in Dallas, so not in the midst of this, but I know many people from Houston, still living in Houston or who have family in Houston. This hits home.
While the best way to help is to contribute to a trusted charity that will get help directly to those who need it, I thought it appropriate to share a few of the small businesses that are doing their part.
You can find the “Come Hell or High Water” shirt on Etsy here. I have to say….it sounds like a Texan and it made me smile. Texans are tough and they will get through this.
May Designs is Texas based and has been featured on the Today Show, Good Morning America and is an Oprah favorite. Love that 100% of the proceeds from their Texas Collection goes to support victims of Hurricane HarveyAnd, then there is one of my all time favorites, based in Seattle, glassybaby who is doing their part to support the recovery effort with their Forever votive….Texas Forever.
Thank you to all of you who may never have been to Texas, but are supporting the recovery effort with goods, donations and prayers. Sometimes the worst of times brings out the best in people.
Here’s to moving forward! It’s good to be back!
