This scene above is what 30,000+ Houstonians are facing today, with more flooding happening as I write this post. Here is another family who needs our help. Keliy writes,
“Friends and family,
I am Keliy Anderson-Staley, a photographer who has lived in Houston for four years, and I am raising funds for myself, husband and children. These funds will support our immediate needs in the aftermath of the flooding from Hurricane Harvey–clothing, lodging–and some of our longer term needs, especially to replace camera and studio equipment essential to my livelihood. We are asking for this support for use as soon as possible. This money will go directly to us and our needs.”
You can read more about what Keliy’s faced during this horrific flooding event here. I’m so blown away by the responses to stories just like Keliy’s– people from all over the country donating to help Houstonians and they’re making a major impact.
I will continue sharing personal stories like these on L. Avenue so if you know of anyone in need please email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
