Shocked. Heart broken. Overwhelmed. These are just a few of the emotions I experienced as I learned of the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Texas is my home state, and Houston is where my family still lives. As I am traveling in Oregon, I'm experiencing another level of natural disasters, as much of this state is burning. But Harvey has hit close to home and close to my heart.
Thankfully, by the good graces of heaven, my family is safe and dry, still in their home and feel confident they will not have to evacuate. Many thousands of Houstonians, however, have been displaced and have lost everything they own to this powerful storm which continues to rage.
As I'm sure many of you feel inspired to help in some way, I too began wondering what organizations are contributing to the relief effort. I have been so pleased to learn that dōTERRA, my beloved essential oil provider, is making a giant effort through their Healing Hands foundation to bring essential hygiene items to evacuees that have been moved to the DFW area.
They have put together kits that include shampoo and conditioner, bath soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, hand towel, a bottle of Melaleuca oil, and packets of Deep Blue rub. These kits will be a tremendous blessing to the thousands of people who had to evacuate their homes and were not able to bring anything with them. Each kit is $25 and I am making an effort to send 60 kits and I want to place the order TONIGHT! That's a big goal in a short amount of time, but I know that with a concentrated effort, it will be easy.
If 60 people donate $25, we can send 60 kits.
If 30 people donate $50, we can send 60 kits.
If 15 people donate $100, we can send 60 kits.
Get in where you fit in, my friends. Let's pool our resources to send aide to those who have truly lost everything. Please send your contribution via PayPal and I will place the order for our 60 kits tonight at 10PM.
