Relief Aid for Houston

Hello visitor, as you may know, on the week of President’s Day, 2021, Winter Storm Uri hit the Houston area. As someone who has lived here for most of my life, the impacts of this storm are all around me, with many of my friends and neighbors (and even myself) included in the list of those who faced property damage due to this unexpected winter storm. And, unfortunately, there are numerous injuries (and even fatalities) that occurred as a result of the unprecedented winter weather, extremely cold temperatures, power outages, food and water shortages, and other impacts that have made negatively impacted life in the Houston area.

However, as Texans and as Houstonians, we uplift each other, help each other, and stick together. We are Houston Strong and Texas Strong, and we vow to rebuild.

This is not to underscore the very reality of this situation, though: we need help.

And so I have contacted numerous organizations throughout the Houston area for permission to use proceeds for several arts products as donations, as well as explicitly using their organization’s name(s). The organization(s) that have approved this usage, so far, include the following:

Please visit the on-site page(s) for the organization or organizations that interest you to learn more about how purchasing any of the listed product offerings will help each respective organization directly.

If you are a local Houston-based, or otherwise Texas-based, organization, please fill out the following contact form to get in touch.

Thank you very much for your interest in helping out my hometown. I truly appreciate this.
