Celebrating, Donating and Spending Time With Friends and Family

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

This weekend has been bittersweet as we continue to think about all the victims from Hurricane Harvey and still try to celebrate with family and friends. Missing my cruise enabled me to stay here and attend church yesterday, learn about how I could contribute a small donation to UMCOR to provide relief kits or other materials to disaster relief efforts, attend a barbeque with old friends and see their house for the first time, and visit my brother and eat and swim at his house for the first time in many months!

I invite you to click on the link for United Methodist Church on Relief to learn how to donate. 100% of your donation goes to the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Every little bit helps whether you donate $1 or $1000, they need all the help they can get. In Port Aransas, they are asking for more clean up type items instead of clothing. There was a list on facebook of needed items but I have not been able to find it this morning. Go to their chamber of commerce page and ask if interested.

I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Labor Day! Thanks for your support, comments and visiting my little blog!
