To our many Houston friends and customers, we are thinking and praying for you. And we want to do our part, to support your recovery and relief. We've located 4 trustworthy, local non-profits that are working around the clock to support the recovery effort in Houston. We will be donating 15% of proceeds from ALL LABOR DAY weekend sales (through Monday, September 4, 2017) at grips4less.com to these organizations.
1) YES Prep Public Schools Harvey Relief Fund: This is an amazing community of schools in the Houston area. All of YES's campuses are situated in Houston's lower-income communities with the mission of closing the education gap. The fund was established to help our YES alumni & current families that were critically affected by the storm. https://secure.acceptiva.com/?cst=fa192b
2) Baker-Ripley Neighboring Centers: I don't really know how to quickly summarize what they do because they do EVERYTHING for neighborhoods in Houston! Baker-Ripley is running a shelter at the NRG Stadium, and definitely a worthy cause to support. https://www.bakerripley.org/get-involved/donate
3) Redeemed Ministries: Redeemed is a Christian organization that runs a safe house for survivors of human trafficking. Their house flooded, and now needs repairs, not to mention temporary housing and transportation for survivors in the meantime! http://redeemedministries.com/donate/
4) Arrow Child & Family Ministries: Arrow is another Christian organization that serves kids who are suffering abuse, and families that are in crisis. They also serve survivors of human trafficking. Many of their foster families and foster kids have had their homes completely flood, and will need help re-building. http://www.arrow.org/harvey
We know people who are connected to all 4 of these organizations and they are all very trustworthy. Thank you for supporting their relief effors. Our prayers and thoughts continue to be with all the families in Houston affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Carol & the grips4less family.
